Infographic: Raw Food Pyramid

This infographic entitled "Raw Food Pyramid" beautifully illustrates what a raw food daily diet plan looks like!

At the foundation is a large variety of fresh leafy greens, fruits and other vegetables.  Sprouts, legumes, nuts and various seeds form the central part of the pyramid.  At the top are herbs, microgreens, wheat grass juice, seaweed and nutritional yeast.

Similarly to a (non-raw) vegan diet, no animal products (including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese and other dairy) are included.

Adopting a whole food, plant-based diet can be a challenge for some people.  Today, there are many vegetarian and vegan products available to make it easier, like vegan cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream, soy and nut milk, tofu and vegetable-based protein meat substitutes.  However, most of these products have been processed using heat and so are avoided in the raw version of a vegan diet.  In that sense, eating only raw can be a real challenge for new vegetarians and vegans and perhaps something to gradually ease into if that is the ultimate goal.
