One of my best tips for staying fully raw has to be: always be prepared. I have a very busy schedule right now and prepping food, storing ripe fruit, and packing food has never been more important. 

Yesterday I found myself with a spare few minutes in the morning that I knew I wouldn’t have later at night so I whipped up some mango salsa to let marinate together for dinner. Super easy :)

  • 1 mango (half diced the other half just chunks)
  • 3 green onion tops
  • cup of cherry tomato 
  • cilantro
  • lime juice

thats the basics! I also diced up a hot pepper to add in. roughly blend half the mango with half your tomatoes and then add in the diced ingredients. I let this sit while I was out for the day and came home to beautiful salsa. I used this salsa in boats of the most beautiful organic butter lettuce and to make raw living quick I just put cucumbers, peppers, celery, and carrots into my food processor at the same time and had sprouts on top.

“The idea of “complete protein” is now recognized to be completely obsolete and incorrect.

Our bodies combine the 21 amino acids to make the millions of different proteins we use, and they store, use, and recycle these amino acids in endless combinations.

Eating a lot of protein, especially animal protein, is inflammatory and toxic.

It is now over 30 years since Frances Moore Lappe publicly apologized for popularizing the false idea of “protein combining” in her Diet for a Small Planet book.

Just eating a varied plant-based diet, one will get protein that is far superior to animal-based protein, which is toxic because it has higher levels of the sulfur-based amino acids methionine and cysteine, which are now understood to be inflammatory as well as acid-producing, leading to cancer, Alzheimer, arthritis, and other diseases.

Recent studies show that animal proteins cause chronic inflammation of the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels, causing heart and circulatory disease.

Casein, the main protein in cows’ milk, is not digestible by humans, who don’t have the enzyme rennin as calves to, leading to autoimmune diseases and many other problems, and called by Dr. T. Colin Campbell “the most potent carcinogen to which humans are routinely exposed.”

Vegans eat by far the highest quality protein if they eat whole-foods and organic, and vegetables are, per calorie, the highest protein foods; it is per calorie, not per gram, that is the accurate measure of macro-nutrients.”
