Rawism...not for every tummy!


Recently I've become friends with a lovely woman and her husband. They are on a raw food diet and had us over for dinner last night. Now before I go on, I should mention that I grew up with a Dad who was a vegetarian for 12 years and ate my very first steak about five years ago...which I enjoyed immensely! SOO, I'm all for veggies! However, I have to say that the meal last night left me with a less than positive experience to go on an all raw food diet. We had "sushi" with raw veggies. It all tasted good! But boy oh boy...I started feeling sick almost immediately. A few hours later, I was glued to the toilet for the next few hours. NOT so fun! Spoke to her today and thanked her for having us over, plus for the nice meal...but I had to ask the embarrassing question, "How were they feeling today?" They were doing just fine, she said. When I told her, she thought that it may have been the sprouts. Another friend of mine thought it was the raw shredded potato that we also ate. Who knows? Maybe we're just a super toxic couple in need of a serious detox with raw foods and juicing? All I know is that I'm not about to go on an all raw food diet...even if we're missing a stove top at the moment and can't really make a good home cooked meal yet, but I promise that I'll still eat my veggies.

  1. I think a sudden change in diet such as switching to raw food is likely to have various initial side effects.

    Variety to your palate is the key.
