Dear Friends of Growing Raw,

New Articles on Growing Raw

Ever needed just a little more motivation or practical advice to help you succeed with your diet? Check out this article on how to stick with your healthy eating plans. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I hope you get something from it.

For those of you on the healthy weight loss trail there's a new article on the usefulness of a fruit and vegetable diet. Also check out the best vegetables for dieting.

I've started collecting all my easy raw food recipes in one place. Essential reading for healthy eaters is the page on my best salad dressing recipes ever, made from oil-free, low-calorie wholefood ingredients. There's also some new raw coffee recipes for those of you who, like me, have a teensy weensy caffeine addiction that demands fulfillment even on a 100% raw diet!

How Raw Are You?

Speaking of 100% raw diets, this month I've been pondering the practicality and health value of high raw (80% raw or more) over full raw. This is partly because despite my continuing attempts at eating a 100% raw diet, after a fortnight or so I invariably drift back to eating high raw.

I know that achieving a high raw diet is already excellent, but I've realised I put unnecessary pressure on myself to be fully raw. I'm asking myself why? Is the difference in benefits really so great? Certainly high raw is much more enjoyable and feasible for me to maintain long term, and long term healthy eating is always the goal.

These thoughts prompted me to write about raw food health levels. I'd love to know what you think so please use the comments box at the bottom of the article to share your opinion.

I hope your 2011 is off to a great start! My free consults are still on offer to anyone interested in personalised healthy eating advice.

All the Best,

My selection of herbs and spices were delivered quickly and were of the best quality I have seen. Great service, fantastic products. Fresh organic herbs from a supplier I trust. - Susan S.

Overall, it was a very positive experience.... they treated me in an exemplary manner when I first ordered from them. I got exactly the product I needed/ordered/expected vis-a-vis the sprouting wheatgrass seeds. I would certainly order from them again for anything that specific. - geo442
