Raw diet
 
Do you think that you would ever be able to participate in a raw diet. I try to eat as healthy as I can but I do not think I would be able to give up my pastas, or breads. these are just too yummy for me.

I ate raw for a couple of weeks but always eating cold food can get boring pretty quickly. Though, I did have a great "Black Forest Gateaux" made solely of nuts, seeds, carob powder etc, which was really good.

I like my steaks cooked, not raw.

Adelfo Cerame Jr did a raw diet and made good gain on it but for me with all the food poisonings going around COOKED is for me.

This looks very close to the recipe:



Black Forest Cherry Cake

This recipe is for a 7" spring form pan

Cake Variation 1
1 cup soft dates, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
1/2 cup raw carob and cacao powder (I used 1/4 cup of each)
1 1/2 cup finely ground almonds or loosely packed left-over pulp from making milk (wet pulp is fine)
1 cup finely ground dried coconut
1/2 cup finely ground cashews
2 teaspoons cherry nuts,* ground in coffee grinder or 1 teaspoon almond extract

*obtained by cracking cherry pits

Place dates in food processor and process until a smooth paste forms. You may need to add a little water.

Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.

Yeah I can't see the point. Natural, sure. But raw? What possible benefits could that have to offset the negatives.

from what i gather, the main idea is when you cook veggies, fruits, etc they lose some of their nutrition. more or less.
