If you’re having leafy greens, add some fennel in there to balance out the fiber. Even better, think of what you could put into a dressing to balance out the fiber intake. For example, fennel, hemp seeds, a lemon squeeze, some basil and a little date combined to make a dressing would be optimal for digestion over leafy greens and lots of raw vegetables.
Today I wanted to talk to you about something other than the food you put in your body… Because I want you to know that LFRV (low-fat raw vegan) is much more than just a diet - it’s a lifestyle. I believe it isn’t enough to just eat the right foods; if you aren’t living the other parts of your life in harmony with the same mindset, it will be difficult to maintain long-term.
Now you might think this is going to cost you a lot of money. This might even be a barrier for you transitioning. So I’m here to tell you that it can be done. I did it myself. I don’t come from a background with a lot of money. I brought up two kids. Money doesn’t grow on trees where I can from. Let me tell you, I can do this on an average of $60/week. You can do this on a budget.
Being on the road while on a Low Fat Raw Vegan diet can seem daunting, especially if you’re new to this lifestyle. You don’t know what the local food is going to be like, whether there’ll be any markets nearby for you to pick up your fresh fruit and veggies, you’re stepping out of your routine… and the fear of judgment always exists.
