Embarking on a raw food diet may be exciting, overwhelming, intimidating, and energizing all at once, making it a monumental life decision. Once you decide to start your raw food diet, you will need to have your wits about you when creating your own raw food recipes. The fact of the matter is that cooking has become an activity so intertwined with today’s culture that it largely defines it; however, starting your own lifestyle and joining the raw food culture can be a fun and healthy adventure that is well worth the effort.
Making your own raw food recipes will probably be difficult at first, as second nature for many people in the kitchen is to turn on the stove or start some water boiling. As time goes by, the raw food lifestyle will become second nature. By following these ten tips, you will be able to create new raw food recipes easily, allowing you to constantly expand your options and explore new raw food combinations.
1. Think about the foods you like. Though creating recipes is partially about venturing out and trying something new, if you do not like the ingredients then you certainly won’t like the finished product. Make a list of the foods you love and think of new ways to combine them.
2. Understand your own eating personality. Are you the kind of person that wants a quick meal, or do you want to sit down and savor every bite? Do you prefer a simple dish to one that incorporates many ingredients? Knowing (and utilizing) the answers to these questions is vital to creating a recipe you will enjoy time and again.
