60% - But I Still Like BBQs!

I believe about sixty percent of my daily calories some from eating raw foods--foods such as salad and salad mixes,including lettuce and herb mixes from the supermarket to similar kinds of mixes from our local farmer's market,which I enjoy both for the freshness and because they are locally grown.


I prefer natural carrots to the packaged "baby" carrots,which someone told me are bleached.I love all raw vegetables that are meant to be consumed raw--so the non-raw content would include potatoes.I like all kinds of fruit like bananas, mangoes, peaches, pineapples, guavas, persimmons, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, tangerines, oranges, apples, strawberries,and cherimoya,just to name a few. The naturally-occurring sugars in fruits surely puts my raw-food consumption to over fifty percent. I consume some of my meals completely of raw things like fruit and vegetables,with raw nuts like almonds and walnuts being the protein part.

I am happy with the amount of raw food I consume because I do enjoy things like barbequed meats and vegetables, including shish kabobs and steaks and fish. But I wouldn't mind eating a raw-only meal if that were what is served. I feel healthy eating raw foods,such as salad,because while I can get full eating these foods,I don't stay full for an excessive amount of time,and that is important when you have activities during the day. I feel the nutrients are preserved when food is raw or not processed in any way. I like not using overly processed foods because I like knowing what ingredients are in them.

I like almost 75% like BBQ and you like 60% BBQ. But i think BBQ is not good for health and in spite this we don't care about it including me. Especially foods from outside also dangerous for health. So, we must take car about health. I would like to say thanks for this big effort. Actually, I need professional assignment writing but this site have great collection of health, food and weight loss etc.
