List of Raw Foods - some ideas

by Webmaster,

While I do not focus on specific raw diet plans on this website, this list of raw foods which I have compiled will give you some ideas on what raw foods can be added to your diet.

This raw food information will thus be able to help you in formulating a raw food diet plan or a raw food diet menu.

    If you are not intending to go fully raw, then some of the above list of raw foods, as well as other vegetables, can also be cooked lightly. This includes asparagus, cabbage, leeks, lentils, potatoes, rice, rhubarb, spinach, turnips, etc.
