Our expert, Eve says:
I’m not a fan of eating exclusively raw, as for some people it can be tough on digestion. There are lots of benefits to eating raw food within a well balanced diet, and it is good to have some raw food everyday, but if you’re considering this kind of diet long term, you’ll need a nutrition plan. If you’re following a vegan raw diet (which most raw foodies adhere to), you will find it difficult to get sufficient amounts of protein, calcium, iron, zinc and vitamin B12. Stock up on spirulina powder for B12 and linseed/flaxseed for omega-3s. Avocado will help keep you satisfied without gorging on nuts and plenty of spices will boost the flavour of your food.
