Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

I have asked my family to help me prepare for my going mostly raw as a Christmas and Birthday gift. My mom wants to go shopping with me which is a great opportunity to help her see the abundance of this diet/life choice. I saw the focus foods shopping list. Is there anything that anyone would suggest as staples and non produce items to add to my pantry? I have liquid spirulina, cordyceps, raw cacao powder... trying to get a super awesome list for this.

Thank you all for all the support that you have provided for me and for all of us in the raw food rehab family! Hope you all have a great holiday experience!

Peace to you,

Dawn Michelle

Sauces! 

Things to make smoothies more interesting.

Spices!

Things to make teas and tonics to warm you up and feel pampered by the scents and taste.

Try to keep lots of lemons and apples to make green smoothies and juices more appealing.

Sunwarrior BLEND powders, stevia, vanilla bean powder, HealthForce Nutritionals superfoods such as Vitamineral Green and Ascerola Cherry (high in Vitamin C), goji berries, maca powder, raw cacao nibs, agave, maple syrup, chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut oil, nutritional yeast, B-12 supplementation or some sort of nutritional supplement (like Vega One - it's not raw - it's vegan though and the chocolate flavoured one is soooooo good) and some sort of seaweed. Good luck and also have a great holiday yourself!

Love & light! <3

I love having chia seeds, hemps seeds, olive oil, cayenne, and ground flaxseed around at all times :-) :-)

Let your taste be your guide.  While there are a number of things that are greatly beneficial and may be added into a raw diet, if you don't like them enough to use them, they won't do you any good in your cupboard and your money is better spent on things you like and will enjoy.

Your superfoods which you can somewhat stash are beneficial but you don't have to stock up on all of them.  Stick to what you know you'll like.

Non-produce staples I generally keep are hemp hearts, chia, flax, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil.  I also keep an assortment of vinegars which, while not raw, are still healthy and handy for easily adding flavors to dishes, esp. salads.  I am also a sucker for Italian flavors so I try to keep things like garlic and Tuscan seasoning on hand as a sort of backup plan when I'm not sure what I want or I don't have any dressings made up.

Focus on what you actually think you are going to eat.  It is hard to say what staples you should keep on hand because this should be based on your tastes, location/climate, availability and so forth.  So, while things like spirulina are very healthy, you don't have to have it, use it or make yourself like it to be successful with this diet.

Eating an assortment of greens is very important in a raw diet so be sure to keep things on hand that you can quickly put together to make a dressing or enhance their flavor (such as for making kale chips, etc.).

I think its great that you are getting your family involved in helping you in your endeavors.  I pray you great success and that you are able to become an inspiration for them all to eat better!

Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday and Happy New Year to you!
