Just pretend like you do...
Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, ask David Wolfe, raw food educator, where to start.
Mike: Now that reminds me, one of the biggest questions our readers probably have for you right now is that they don't know where to start, and they're confused about all of this information.
Wolfe: Well, first of all, I've got to say the best place to start is walk into an organic health food store. Start eating organic food, and start eating some of those foods raw. Goji berries are great things to start with, and then you just feel your way out. Start having salad, stop going out to eat at night and start making your own food. Now how do you do that? Well, you just wing it. I mean, I'm way behind the current curve when it comes to making food. I just end up throwing everything into a blender, blending it up and running out the door.
You’ve got to go through a learning curve. I had this one guy who traveled with me for some time who was new to raw food and he was blending cabbage with MSM powder and water and eating it. I was dry-heaving watching him, but you know, he had to go through that learning curve of finding out what tastes good. You pretend like you know what you're doing until you figure it out -- and eventually you do.
What you can do with a blender is amazing -- I know about 50 different things I should be eating every day. You can't sit down there and eat 50 different things, but with a blender, you can throw 20 different things in there in the morning, 20 different things in there for lunch, 10 different things in for dinner -- you get it all, and then you have the most complete, rounded-out nutrition you've ever had in your life. It's a lot of fun and you can make it taste good.
People say, "Well, you know, I don't want to blend everything," but after a while you've been on this path -- the sensation of actually having to chew up all that food and then being tired after a meal is a drag. You want to have the energy to keep going and going, and therefore liquid nutrition becomes -- after a while when you're ready -- a better alternative.
