When we make raw foods for our friends, they are always amazed at how good they taste. If you've never eaten raw, then you should give it a try because there are so many delicious and unique raw food recipes that will blow your mind and sizzle your taste buds.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of spending 48 hours to make a meal (as many raw recipes require with dehydration) so I prefer fresher, simpler recipes.

As a I mention in my ebook, Eating for Energy, most of my diet is liquid. I would say that roughly 70-75% of my daily food intake comes in the form of smoothies and juices. Maybe I'm lazy but I also know that drinking your meals make life a whole lot easier for your digestive system.

Just think about the difference between eating a steak or dreaking a green smoothie...which one would your stomach rather deal with. Mine would deal with the latter. I know because it has told me on numerous occasions.

Anyways, I'd like to show you that raw food recipes don't need 24-48 hours and tons of ingredients to prepare. I believe simple and fresh is better. That's what the 120 raw recipes in Eating for Energy are all about.

So here are 3 of my favourite green smoothies (which are totally raw) that I make on daily basis. I don't have any names for them because I just throw stuff together and give it a good blend.

Required equipment: vita-mix or high speed blender; various fruits and vegetables.

Yields: each of these 3 green smoothie recipes wil give you about 1 liter of delicious raw goodness.

 

Green Smoothie #1

This first smoothie is adapted from Victoria Boutenko's "Green for Life" book. I tried it once and loved it, so I continued to make it and then added a few of my own little twists.

2 cups baby spinach
1 apple
1 banana
Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp green barley grass powder (optional)
2 cups water

 

Green Smoothie #2

This is a delicious raw food meal that packs huge amounts of nutrition. In fact, all the raw recipes you'll ever come across provide unparalled nutrition. This smoothie almost tastes like candy.

1 cup baby spinach
1 cup arugula
1 cup strawberries
1 mango
1 apple
1 tbsp green barley grass powder (optional)
2 cups water

 

Green Smoothie #3

3-4 leaves of kale (stalks removed)
1 banana
1 cup strawberries
2 cups water
1tbsp ground flaxseeds
1 tbsp hempseeds
