You might be interested in eating more raw foods, but not sure where to start. Many people claim to lose weight and feel better when they are eating more raw foods. Some whole foods also have more benefits when eaten raw than when cooked, just as some foods are more beneficial when cooked. Either way we’ve got you covered.

The deep rich color represents the high content of antioxidants that the beetroot contains. Because this dish is raw, all these antioxidants (along with the enzymes, vitamins and minerals) haven’t been destroyed by heat and your body will be able to efficiently recognize, absorb and utilize them.

Juicing is a wonderful way to get your daily recommendation of fruits and vegetables, however, there is one downside: wasted juice pulp. That is unless you have a recipe that uses juice pulp like these crackers by Bianca, the Green Creator! That’s right, these crackers are made with juice pulp, chia seeds, flax meal, tamari, spices, and water. The result is a crunchy, sturdy cracker that is perfect for dipping.

8. Raw Sushi Rolls With Sunflower Seed ‘Rice’
These Raw Sushi Rolls by Gabriella Hose and Joe Furini make a great lunch – they’re so delicious, fun to make, and packed full of color and goodness! Instead of rice, we make a really tasty paste out of sunflower seeds – the texture and taste is weirdly a bit like tuna, but it works perfectly in sushi and adds a great flavor. What’s great about these rolls is you can mix up the recipe depending on what veggies you have in – some great options are avocado, carrot, cucumber, pepper, sprouts, beet, and any pickled veggies, but it’s great to experiment with what you have!
