These recipes are all about simplicity, quickness, and fresh ingredients. In fact, this is what my diet usually looks like (instead of what I showed you above).
Green smoothies – Drinking green smoothies for breakfast (or at any point of the day) is a great way to ensure that you are getting super nutrition at the beginning (and throughout) of each day.
Try different fruit combinations, and increase the nutritional value of the smoothie by adding “booster” ingredients such as wheatgrass, hemp, linseeds or fish oil.
Here’s one of my personal favourite energy foods smoothie recipes…
The Green Monster
1 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 handful of parsley
4-5 stalks of kale, stemmed
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2-3 cups of water
1. Simply blend everything together in a blender and this will give you about 1 liter of green smoothie goodness!
Let’s move on to salads. Perhaps the 2nd easiest way to increase your raw food intake, is to serve a huge raw salad with every meal.
As well as the raw veggies and salad ingredients you can also maximize the flavour and nutrition of the salad by throwing in nuts, seeds, fruit and oils.
Finally, the 3rd way to help get more raw fruits and veggies into your body is to… simply snack on your favourite
fruits and veggies throughout the day.
It’s really as easy as that.
