    It's really hard to get sufficient protein without meat. Could you maybe just try eating some chicken or fish with your raw veggies?

    I am thinking about starting to eat raw food for like 2 weeks to see how that go. I am actually thinking about cutting out meat I am confused at how I should go about this situation I want to try to eat better which I am. I really want to change up the rice intake that I am eating honestly.

    all i have to add is, the food processor is your friend when going on a raw diet.

    you can make all manner of sauces, dips, spreads, fillings out of raw ingredients with a food processor

    I did about 2 years as an all-local-foods raw vegan. I made an exception for tropical fruits, nuts, quinoa, and coffee. If it weren't for my fair-trade coffee with raw cashew "cream" made in the food processor, that eating style never would have worked for me.

    4 months ago, my husband's heart Dr. told him to eat whole foods only. At last month's appt., the doctor said he was doing so great that he was able to cut out 2 of his heart medicines and lost 8 lbs. First thing we did, was buy "Forks over Knives" cookbook by Del Sroufe. It has 300 recipies for plant-based eating. We fix a lot of spaghetti with rice noodles and fresh mushrooms. I still have occasional chicken, as my health is good; so I can't say I'm eating 100% what he eats. Good luck with your journey! Now we just walk by the meat dept. and seldom buy eggs. We have a teenage adult at home, so I try to mix things alittle!

    If you were to read, as I did, the book How Cooking Made Us Human by primatologist Richard Wrangham, you might accept his theory that it is by learning to cook food, and therefore make the nutrients more readily available, that humans were able to develop larger, more complex brains than the other apes.

    But, of course, there are other scientists who say this is bunkum.

    If you were to read raw food movement books, you would believe that raw is the only way to go.

    But, of course, there are other scientists who say this is bunkum.

    So, eat raw vegan for a couple of weeks. Why not? But don't blindly accept all the writers who claim that raw-only is the BEST way to eat. Bear in mind that any diet that includes ONLY this and NOT that is likely to lead to some sort of biological imbalance in your system unless you are extremely careful to design a carefully crafted balanced diet. Humans evolved as omnivores -- not obligate omnivores, we can also thrive as careful herbivores -- but we are mostly omnivores.
