did somebody say protein?

There are several misconceptions around protein sources and what the average human body requires. Vegetarians may argue that beans, legumes, rice and grains provide more than enough amino acids for optimum health, all while respecting the life of our animal friends. Others may argue that animal protein is essential to our survival. Without these amino acids, the human body simply cannot repair, build or continually evolve to proper potential.

Raw foodists go one step further from both of these arguments and attest to the value of protein from vegetables and fruits. In fact, Dr Douglas Graham has trained professional athletes on this style of diet. Learn more about Dr Graham and his lifestyle of plant protein based diets here.

Angela Stokes, a friend and raw foodist of almost five years, was recently interviewed by Sally Jesse Rapheal. Listen here for further insight into her journey and current "juice feast" for deep cleansing.

In order to make the best choices for you and your lifestyle, continue to educate yourself through reading material and experimenting under the guidance of educated counsel. Whatever path you choose, do so with clarity of mind and openness of heart. Avoid getting caught up in media hype and rather, spend time nurturing your body with clear nutritious choices. Ultimately, open yourself to the bounthy of opportunities to celebrate in harvest with our earth's soil. You can't go wrong with Mother Nature.

And remember, the spirit in which your food is grown, prepared and eaten is as valuable as the nutrient content held within.

Bon Appetit
