Foods to Eat on a Raw Food Detox

Ivelina  —  February 27, 2013

Its less than 2 days I will be on a Raw Food Detox. I am already stocking up on things like sunflower seeds, almonds, making more sprouts , celery and my vegetable order will arrive tomorrow so I will be all set for Friday. In meantime I thought I make a list of all the foods , that I will be including in my Raw Detox.

The list includes only plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds and nuts.Before I share the list I would like to say, that only recently I learned the difference between vegetables and fruits .If it has seeds its a fruit, that means that a lot of “vegetables” will be listed as ” fruits “, but never the less this list is just a guide to show you the incredible variety of foods, that you can enjoy!

In addition to all that I will be taking chick pea sprouts,kidney bean sprouts , sunflower seeds sprouts and a few other , that I have available or buy.

My personal choice and intention is to take nothing , that has been cooked, so I intend not to eat any sweet potatoes ,other potatoes , wild rice or any other grains , that can only be eaten cooked. My intention is to sprout them and enjoy them that way. This is totally optional for anybody who is doing any raw food detox and the main thing is to go with the flow . Listen to your body and intuition , focus on nourishment and health and take every day as it comes.

Hope you find this list useful !

Sending Blessings and Love

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Bulgaria (a small country in  Eastern Europe). I moved to Northern Ireland when I was 22 years old, full of hope, big dreams and an adventurous spirit. I am the mother of four wonderful boys and although I am very grateful for each lesson I've learned in my life, I wish that some things might have happened sooner, but everything has it’s place and everything that is  worthwhile is not always easy.  I want to connect with you. Get in touch.
