I often read about raw food and how it is better than the processed food that we eat. The problem most of us face is that we are used to eating processed and adulterated food. When we see a pure and organic food item, our body and mind fails to recognise it. I admit having cravings for foods that I have been eating for 20 years. Thankfully, the desire for meat is gone but the journey doesn't end there. Things like processed flour, coffee and tea, aerated drinks, and food cooked with zero nutrients were a part of my lifestyle since childhood and it is not easy to let them go.
I will find ways to get it done since I have set my mind to it. Like I always say, I don't push myself to do things that I know I must do. I take care of the objections and let the change happen naturally. Since I had been very motivated to include raw food as a part of my daily diet, I decided to go for sprouts. Till now, fruit was the only thing I had raw on a regular basis apart from an occasional bowl of salad. It was very hard to eat raw sprouts every day.
I was determined to make a change so I decided to steam them slightly. It is a great way to get into the habit. They may lose a little nutrition but it is better than any other refined food I would be having for breakfast. I have a plan to reduce the steam duration with time and have them raw eventually. I may come up with some great raw recipes very soon so keep watching this space.
