I’m not a fan of complicated raw food diet recipes…
And I think long, complicated, and ingredient-intense recipes are one of the main reasons that many people fall off course when going raw.
Let’s be honest…
You don’t want to spend 48 hours dehydrating crusts, crackers, and other foods that require truckloads of nuts and seeds.
Not only do they take long to make but they also weigh you down, since nuts and seeds can be very heavy.
So if you want easy raw food recipes then it’s time to pack up your dehydrator, throw it in storage and bust our your vitamix or other blender.
I’m naturally very lazy so I’d rather throw 6-8 fresh fruits and veggies into a blender and drink my nutrients than wait around for hours waiting and waiting for some gourmet raw food recipe to be finally be ready to eat.
Can you relate?
That’s why, I think you’ll enjoy the following easy raw food recipes. These are some of my go-to recipes when the last thing I want to do is make food.
