Raw vegan meals are a wonderful addition to any diet, I try to incorporate raw meals into my lifestyle when I can, it’s challenging though. I tend to crave cooked foods, but I feel amazing when I do eat raw meals and if you haven’t done so – I highly recommend it. Just starting your morning with a green smoothie or having a salad for lunch really makes a difference long term. You’ll feel more energy and crave less “bad” foods, or reach for them less often, over time.0
