When I decided to shift towards the raw food diet, I wanted to detoxify my body. I only knew that it would be healthier food to eat. At first, I started the raw diet plan to lose some of my fats more healthily. Now, after years of switching to a raw diet completely, I have realized the raw eating meals is beneficial for more than one reason.
Going raw can bring positive change into your life:
1. Raw Food Will Bring You Back To Kitchen
Wondering how that can is beneficial? Then let me tell you. When you consume raw food, you can’t eat out every night or order food from restaurants. Your habit will start to break. Few restaurants serve you with raw meals.
It will make you enter the kitchen after you do your grocery shopping. You may start with making green smoothies at breakfast time, pack your salad recipe for office lunch, and finally, you will start to experiment on your own.
This habit change will bring a positive shift towards your life in the first place as you will eat healthier food instead of junk food. You will also save plenty of money.
2. You Will Find Food Intolerances
When you eat uncooked food, you have to avoid the common allergens from your diet. Sometimes, we don’t realize that we have an allergy to certain food items until we eat them raw. So, eating raw will ensure what your body can take and what not.
3. Raw Food Will Make You More Intuitive
While I started to have a clean diet of vegetables, fresh fruits, etc. and stopped consuming any processed food as well as allergens, it spiritually changed me. I felt the cleansing process started to open my intuition area to another level.
My mind started to get sharper, unlike what you feel from boozing all night. My focus to do things became stronger and there is clarity in mind.
4. My Tastes Changed
I no longer had cravings for coffee while I woke up, and the strong craze for alcohol didn’t fascinate me anymore. I now eat savory food instead of sugary ones. Sometimes I made a healthy raw dessert to satisfy my sugar indulgent. Before, I used to eat packs of Skittles and Mentos, which were not good for health. Now I miss green smoothies while I am traveling for a few days but not into all those Skittles etc.
5. Raw Food Lifestyle
Previously I was in party mode almost every day, but with the shift to raw meals, things changed. It feels so absurd now with the thought of sitting in a bar and drinking all night and get a hangover. Now I preferred to stay in a clean, positive environment, practicing a healthy lifestyle, and doing meditation as my body and mind have more clarity.
6. Learning About Nutrition And Diet
You will garner knowledge about the nutrition value of various food items in their raw state as you will consume them raw. Your family members, friends, and colleagues will shower you with questions and answer that you must know the answer yourself. You will be eager to learn about the health benefits of each of the food items to incorporate accordingly.
