Going raw, whether it’s for the first time or the “next” time, ideally needs some thought and preparation. As with anything in life, your likelihood of being successful at something is seriously improved when you take some time to get planned and prepared so you don’t just rush in blindly! The tips I’m about to share with are easy, fun and most importantly enjoyable!
The Kick-Start begins with the all-important…
3-Day Prep Zone
For most people it’s usually unrealistic to think that you can dive straight into going raw (particularly after Christmas!), so I always recommend that you decide upon a 10-day period, starting as soon as possible, where you feel that you will have a good chance of following a plan and have minimal interruptions in your diary.
When you’ve found your 10-day window, mark it off in your calendar and commit to giving it your best, knowing that this could very well be the start of something rather special!

SERVES: Makes 2-3 large wine glasses (1 litre’s worth) This weeks recipe is a delicious favourite drink of mine and perfect for the festive period! I have always been a lover of sparkling drinks and realising that sometimes it is the “stuff” that surrounds our food and drink choices that is attractive is a huge help in letting go of less-than-healthy choices. And so it is that when I throw a party or am entertaining I LOVE to come up with new non-alcoholic drinks – usually based on fresh juices and sparkling water and I serve them in a beautiful glass. Tasty, refreshing and it even somehow tastes mildly alcoholic, this is one I will be enjoying again and again … Continue reading
There are no end of possibilities about what we could eat this Christmas Day, however, what my concern is, in this article, is: Should *You* Be Eating Raw This Christmas?
Read on to discover why my question is as layered as the festive trifle!
“A Raw Christmas”.
Now what’s the first thing you think about when you hear those words? Be honest!
If it sounds like music to your ears then that would suggest that to have a Raw Christmas this year is what’s right for you, both at the below surface level and ideally in real life. If, on the other hand, it makes you think of isolation and standing out like a sore thumb from your companions, then it will be worth reading on. And if it sounds like something truly awful that really isn’t on your agenda, then you’re definitely in the wrong place (at least as far as this article goes) and I congratulate you on your clarity! Happy Christmas, now go and have your fun!
So this article is really for those of you who *think* that you’d like to be raw, but at the moment are yo-yoing all over the place between being ruled by your heart, your head, your eyes, your beliefs, your worries, and your belly! Which I think, if I know you at all, dear readers, is where most of you are going to be right now…
This recipe has been a favourite of mine for many years. It’s great for dessert any time of year, but especially in the colder months when you want something sweet and comforting! Continue reading
