Ten Best Foods for the Raw Food Traveler

rawfood travel 01 Ten Best Foods for the Raw Food Traveler

You’re keeping your nutritional needs met in good shape at home now that you’ve worked out a diet that includes all the elements required for good health. You’ve also found the best stores and online sites where you can find them, and you’ve become pretty expert at preparing them, even the sprouts that play such an important role in balancing your nutritional requirements. However, you’re hitting the road now, and you don’t want to waver from your raw-foods diet. Also, you don’t want to jeopardize your health because you might not be able to obtain the nutritional elements your body needs. Following are ten foods to take with you so you can be sure to stay healthy.

1. Bee Pollen: Bee pollen packs a load of nutrition in a small package. Pollen can provide the following nutritional support when you’re traveling:

  • Assure that your diet includes all major nutritional components.
  • Improve physical and intellectual output.
  • Strengthen resistance to disease.
  • Heal disorders such as those in the gastrointestinal system, glands, and vital organs.
  • Restore equilibrium to all bodily functions.
  • Cleanse by eliminating sludge and waste materials.
  • If you’ve never eaten bee pollen before, test it out for sensitivity. If you’re extremely sensitive to bee stings, you may have a reaction when it gets into your system. Try just a small amount and be prepared to take an antihistamine in case you do get a strong reaction and go to the emergency room if you find yourself in respiratory distress. If you don’t have a reaction, try a little more the next day, increasing how much you’re getting up to a teaspoonful. If you haven’t reacted after five days, you are probably not going to have a problem with it.

    Week 5 | Lori Painter Raw Food Diet Bikini Challenge

    lori painter bikini challenge week5 Week 5 | Lori Painter Raw Food Diet Bikini Challenge

    Week 5 of my Raw Food Diet Bikini Challenge. (See all the weeks on Lori’s Section on G Living)

    What is this bikini body challenge all about? Lori said: “I am documenting my weight loss bikini body journey with a motivation to look good naked. My desire for a lean green clean machine is through raw foods and fun balancing workouts. Looking good naked may seem superficial, however our bodies are a reflection of self love and respect. Making the world a better place starts within us. Cleaning up the planet starts with clean people. How can we create a clean green planet if we don’t do the same with our own bodies? My aim is to inspire others to act in ways that honor their bodies and the planet at the same time. A clean body clears the mind to conscious growth and a healthy planet.”

    Weigh In
    Weigh In : 127.2 lbs

    I have been missing my greens this week. Not too sure why, just been eating mostly fruit & laying low on the overt fats. Friday Evening to Saturday Evening water fast for 24 hours. I broke the fast on red wine (biodynamic, organic) not a great way to break a fast. Then had dinner: salad, sauteed carrots & broccoli, a 1/2 C of a rice dish

    The inches are playing games on me, but I have to admit it has been almost 2 months since my last measure and weigh in. So, this is where I am at now.

    Week 3 of my Raw Food Diet Bikini Challenge. (see week 1 and intro and week 2)

    Weigh In
    131.4 (down .5 lbs since last week)

    Overall, that is a loss of 2.25 inches in just a week. Here is proof that the scale doesn’t have to go down in order for my efforts to be noticed. I do feel that eating after 6 pm and overeating out of frustration has been a culprit to not losing any weight this week. I expect that to happen from time to time. As long as I see changes I am happy. It doesn’t hurt that I kept inches in the curvy spots either. Those are usually the first to go. However, I know they will gradually decrease too. As matter of fact I enjoy having smaller breasts.

    Overall, that is a loss of 1.75 inches in just over a week. This is fantastic and I need to remember that my efforts are not going unnoticed even if I make a poor diet choice here and there. My good efforts far outweigh the negative ones.

    E! Entertainment features Organic Raw Food

    rawfoods1 E! Entertainment features Organic Raw Food

    E! Entertainment recently did a piece on raw food diets — of course it’s a crappy video, full of cheesy music and stiff voice-overs that make it sound more like an infomercial then a news segment. It’s hard to believe it’s from a major network like E! Entertainment — actually, on second thought — it’s not hard to believe at all. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos
