Raw Nutrition – How To Ensure Optimal Nutrients In Your Raw Food Vegan Diet

The raw food diet is criticized by many and laughed at by the world. Where do you get your protein? They teasingly bully you. 
You can’t be getting enough nutrients. They boldly declare. Are they perhaps correct? You wonder. It all comes down to how sensibly you undergo the raw vegan diet. Y
ou need to ensure plenty of variety as well as quantity in order to reap the benefits of a raw food diet.
Variety
In order to receive ideal nutrition on the raw diet, one must ensure variety in their daily dietThis means eating a wide range of raw foods every day to feed one’s body with the six nutrients: water, carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals.
Water – Drink plenty of water. Also enjoy lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are naturally high in water content.
Carbohydrates – Fruits and vegetables will provide your body with the carbohydrates that it needs to function every day. 
Eat fruits such as bananas, cherries, grapes, dates, figs and mango. Also enjoy vegetables like carrots, beetroot, parsnips, corn and sweet potatoes. 
You can also get your carbohydrate sources from soaked grains (wild rice, kamut, quinoa etc.).
Protein – This is the topic most widely brought up by non-raw foodists, so you need to be armoured with plenty of information and knowledge to throw back at these people. 
This will also boost your own confidence in the raw vegan diet! So, where does a person get their protein sources on a raw food diet?
Get your daily protein sources from foods such as sprouted beans and grains (mung beans, chickpeas, garbanzo, kamut, quinoa, wild rice, lentils etc.), figs, nuts and seeds (hemp, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans etc. {ideally sprouted}), spirulina (algae), maca (a herbaceous plant), leafy greens (kale, dandelion, spinach), and mushrooms.
Fats – Get your essential fats from avocados, nuts (especially walnuts), cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil and coconut oil.
Vitamins & Minerals – Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day will ensure that you are feeding your body with essential vitamins and minerals. 
Enjoy plenty of fresh papaya, apples, berries, pineapple, leafy greens, herbs, carrots, beetroot, ginger, bananas, and cucumber… as much variety as possible! 
Also you should endeavour to make a fresh juice at least once a day to increase your vitamin and mineral intake.
Quantity – You must eat enough food on the raw diet in order to receive adequate nutrition and to prevent weakness and lethargy. If you don’t eat enough food, you will not reap the benefits of a raw food diet.
Remember that raw fruits and vegetables are low in calories, so you need to eat plenty of them every day to get enough calories. 
This is a common mistakes for folks new to the raw food diet – they simply don’t eat enough food, and wonder why they are feeling so hungry all the time and weak. Eat up! This cannot be emphasized enough!
If you find it difficult to eat large raw salads you need to opt for other methods of getting your calories in such as juices, raw “soups,” raw treats such as slices and “brownies” (made from dates, cacao and nuts), smoothies, dips and spreads, etc. You can find plenty of raw recipes online such as on websites, blogs, or recipe e-books.
