Superfoods In Every Sip
Have you ever enjoyed a sweet raspberry smoothie, creamy banana milk shake, rich glass of chocolate milk, or tart strawberry yogurt drink? Maybe an Orange Julius from the mall, spicy holiday eggnog, or a glass of tangy, dairy-based, peach kefir are favorite drinkable treats. In this book, I will be introducing you to their raw, vegan cousins - more healthful and nutritionally dense versions that are free of dairy, eggs, sugar, alcohol, and artificial flavors and colors. They're chock-full of plant-derived rejuvenating liquids; energy-enhancing live enzymes; easy-to-assimilate vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, fiber, complex carbohydrates, natural sugars, and proteins; plus loads of tongue-tantalizing flavor.
Every day there is new information printed and reported on the television, radio, and Internet regarding the benefits of eating a plant-based diet or at least a diet that relies heavily on plants. If you don't know by now, you should: a daily diet rich in raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, as well as whole, gluten-free grains and other plant-derived specialty ingredients such as raw cocoa, carob powder, spirulina powder, goji berries, and rejuvenating herbs such as maca root and Solomon's seal root, can maximize your health and well-being.
When you feed yourself only the very best raw plant foods - organic if possible - these foods become extraordinarily beautiful and sacred to your being. Why? No only because they taste great, but also because you begin to feel better and look better than you have in years. Energy comes roaring back. Every cell that hungers for fuel and revitalizing fluids is satisfied. It's true that when you eat more raw plant foods, you tend to be less physically hungry on a day-to-day basis. By eating foods of superior quality, your body will be better satisfied and the quantity you consume will naturally diminish. Raw food does not have empty calories. Every bite you eat is nutritionally dense, so your body is happier and not always crying out for more.
Every sip of the raw, whole food-derived, superfood beverages in this book is so rejuvenating, refreshing, energizing, and youthifying that every cell of your body will be singing your praises for finally quenching the thirst for nutrient-rich liquids.
Happy cells = a happy, energetic body = happy you!
In the next blog, Part 2 of this series, I'll begin to share with you a few of the dynamic and delicious raw drink recipes from the book as well as other interesting and useful information with regard to raw food nutrition. Until then . . . be happy, whole, and enjoy unbelievable energy and health!
