Challenges of Going Raw Vegan
My first week as a raw vegan was quite an adventure! After reading and learning about the raw vegan diet, I finally took the plunge and set myself up for success. I had heard all sorts of stories about how difficult it can be to go raw vegan, so I expected some challenges along the way.
Sure enough, there were a few bumps in the road. From figuring out which ingredients to buy at the grocery store to managing meals when eating out with friends and family, my new plant-based lifestyle definitely came with its own unique set of obstacles. Fortunately, with careful meal planning, research, and an open mind, I was able to successfully complete my first 7-days of a raw vegan diet!
Meal Prepping Strategies
Meal prepping can be an intimidating task, but with a few strategies, it doesn’t have to be! Starting my first week as a raw vegan I made sure that I had the right meal prep strategies in place set me up for success to avoid being overwhelmed.
During my 7-day raw vegan diet, I made sure to have a supply of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and beans. Furthermore, meal prepping ahead of time ensures that I always have delicious meals on hand when hunger strikes. Strategies like setting aside time each week to shop for ingredients and preparing food ahead of time make meal prepping easy and fun.
One strategy I love is batch prepping – this means I prepare several servings at once so that I’m set for the whole week! This eliminates all the fuss of having to prepare something each day.
Shopping for food should not be overwhelming when you are just starting a raw vegan diet. It’s should not be more intimidating when your first week is completely raw! Focusing on your first 7-day as a raw vegan is a great way to jumpstart your journey to better health and nutrition.
Here are some tips to help make your transition into the world of raw veganism smoother and easier!
- First, it’s essential to plan out your meals in advance so that you know what items you need from the grocery store.
- Make sure to check out online recipes for inspiration and guidance on how to prepare delicious, nutritious meals without cooking.
- When shopping, look for fresh produce like fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, grains such as quinoa or millet, legumes such as lentils or chickpeas, seaweed products such as nori sheets, and sea vegetables like kelp noodles.
- Check out the frozen aisle since frozen fruits and vegetables can be a convenient option for those who don’t have access to fresh produce.
- Try new foods by experimenting with new types of fruits and vegetables to keep your meals interesting.
- Don’t be afraid to shop online since many online stores sell raw vegan ingredients and products that may not be available in your local grocery store.
- Consider joining a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) or farmers market, you will have a variety of fresh and in-season produce.
