We all need to hit the reset button and this is the perfect time of year to do it. This cleanse will help you reset your palate, cleanse/detox your body, get better at incorporating more fruit and vegetables into your diet and if interested, transition to a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.
In 2015 I embarked on raw food journey. Going into that year I was burdened by severe joint pain, especially in my knees. At times it would be so bad, my son would have to help me get my legs unto the bed.
To my surprise, within 3 months of starting my raw food diet, I ran a half marathon race. I continued to run that entire year. My joint pain was nonexistent.

Raw fruit contains a wealth of vitamins that protect the body from harmful free radicals. These free radicals contribute to chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease.
If you worry about stuffing yourself with carbohydrates when you eat fruit, remember that fruit is a simple carbohydrate, and the sugars are easily absorbed by cells as a fuel source.
Since you’re consuming whole fruit, you’re also getting fiber and high doses of antioxidants. While protein should definitely be the start of the breakfast, you’ll want to include a healthy dose of fruit and chopped nuts and seeds for healthy fats as well.
Vegetables provide high amounts of minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium that our bodies need for metabolic processes, nerve function, and a whole host of other important tasks.
It’s a balance of different minerals that helps the body maintain normal health. Of course vegetables also contain lots of antioxidants, so you’ll want to include lots of fruits and vegetables in your raw food diet.
