Raw food diets have become very
popular with many people throughout the world. This kind of diet provides many
health benefits and advantages to all who use it. However, getting started in a
raw food diet can be a bit of a challenge, not only in the actual transition
from a traditional diet to a raw food diet, but also where to go to find the
foods for it. The aim of this article is to help you find those foods.
RELATED: What Does It Mean To Eat Raw Foods?
Because of the interest and growth
in raw food dieting there are some raw food specialty markets available in some
locations. This is especially true for the larger cities where there are more
people, all with different eating interests. Some people, who live in big
cities, may be fortunate enough to have one of these stores in the city in
which they live. If you don’t have a raw food store near you, do not worry.
Your local grocery store has always
carried many types of raw foods, and many of these stores are expanding their
raw food inventories to meet the ever increasing demand for raw food products.
Raw foods that have always been stocked in your grocery store are all your
vegetable needs, which are located in the produce section. Often, this section
will also carry bagged nuts, including sunflower and pumpkin seeds. In
addition, you should be able to find sprouts and organically grown produce.
Farmer markets are another hot spot for finding practically any raw produce
that you might like.
Around many cities, out in the
country, are farm lands owned by private farmers. Many of these farmers sell
portions of their crops, at a stand along the road side of their farms. The
good thing about these vegetables sold at these stands is that they are very
fresh and the variety is often larger than what you would get at the grocery
store. The down side is that the pesticides are generally unwashed of
Raw grains can sometimes be a little
more difficult to find, especially those of a specialty kind. However, many
grocery stores do carry a limited type, such as raw oats. If you don’t have an
alternative foods store near you or can’t find that special you want you may be
able to go on-line and order them.
One advantage of a raw food diet is
the costs. Because you have basically eliminated meat products from your
shopping list and are not buying prepackaged foods you could easily find your
bill at the checkout counter to be much less than it has been in the past.
Another advantage of raw food diets
is that many raw foods can be grown right in your own backyard. Most vegetables
and some fruits are fairly easy to grow, especially if you have a green thumb.
Carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, strawberries, green beans, are examples of raw
foods that can be grown in the back yard and some of these can even be grown in
pots on the patio. Both tomato and strawberry plants grow very well in pots and
do look attractive placed in the right spot.
An advantage of growing your own is
that you don’t have chemicals and pesticides. Many foodist seek an organic raw
food diet and growing your own is one sure way to get organically grown foods.
As the grower you are able to control what you use to help your garden grow and
protect your plants from the invasion of insects. And besides garden can be
nice places to hang out. Toiling the soil of the garden is very relaxing,
gratifying, and fun for many people.
Raw foods are actually all around us and available for our use and our health.
