4 Raw Food Recipes to Get You Started Today

By far the hardest thing about going raw is figuring out what to eat on a meal-to-meal basis. Even with all the free raw resources available, I know it's still difficult to go raw.

We live in a cooked food world and eating raw just seems so difficult...even preposterous!

The best thing I can do for you is to give you some recipes to get started, raw recipes that are not only tasty and satisfying, but HEALTHY.

Check out this entire day's worth of low fat, high fruit raw vegan recipes!

Breakfast: Banana Blueberry Bonanza


5 bananas

1 pint blueberries



Blend! The amount of water used is completely up to you. I prefer thinner smoothies so 1.5 cups would be about perfect for me.

Lunch: Papaya Power


6 medium papaya

Half a lime



Cut papayas in half and remove the seeds. Squeeze limejuice over the papaya and devour with a spoon...or your hands.:)

Dinner Fruit Meal: Peaches and Blueberries


8 medium peaches

1 pint blueberries


Half, pit, and chop up the peaches (I prefer to peel mine first, but it isn't necessary). Mix together with the blueberries in a big (and I mean BIG) bowl.

Dinner Savory Meal: Lettuce Wraps


1/2 Hass avocado

1/2 red bell pepper, diced

2 medium tomatoes, diced

(Optional): lime juice

(Optional): handful cilantro

1 head romaine lettuce


Peel and mash the avocado with a fork. Mix in chopped bell pepper, tomatoes, squeeze of lime juice and cilantro (if desired). Spoon mixture into lettuce leaves and down the hatch!

I really hope you enjoy these delicious and healthy raw recipes and that they help you stop procrastinating and go raw TODAY!

And remember, each meal can easily be modified for taste or calories needed. If you don't like blueberries, substitute raspberries or blackberries instead. If you need double the amount of calories for breakfast, don't hesitate to double the recipe.:)

Go raw and be fit,
