Tip #3 Juice your greens
Greens will make you feel good and, contrary to the belief most of us adopted as children, they can actually taste good too. It just takes a little retraining of the taste buds for most of us. Once you start eating raw, you’ll find you no longer have to force yourself to “eat your vegetables.” You’ll want to eat your vegetables, especially the green ones. Soon...
When what we are is what we want to be, that’s happiness– Malcolm Forbes
Tip #2 Don't be afraid to overeat
As I’ve mentioned before, going raw isn’t a simple transition for everyone. It takes discipline, planning, and a whole lot of self control. The good news is that once you start noticing changes in your body, in your mind, in your energy and mood, and start appreciating the way eating raw makes you feel, you’ll notice it’s actually not so difficult after all.

When it comes to smoothies, pretty much anything goes (any type of fruit that is). Start with your base: coconut water/milk, almond milk, raw cow’s milk, fresh OJ or grapefruit juice, or just plain water. Next, throw in frozen banana or two, which will add thickness and extra sweetness (freezing isn’t necessary but if you’re like me, you’ll feel more refreshed with a cold...
My Raw City
Boston, Massachusetts. A city of tradition, of intellect, of spirit. A city of baked beans, steamed Lobster, and New England clam chowder. (All delicious, but maybe enough is enough?) It’s where I landed post-college, and four years later where I continue to nest. Being the raw foodie I am, other, more progressive cities have tempted me… New York City, Chicago, San Diego,...
