Overview

5 Day Raw Food Challenge

6 Modules | 23 Videos | 1 Resource

Going raw for 5 days is the perfect reset button. With all the toxins that the body absorbs, be it through food, the environment, water, beauty products, or hygiene products, you can become overwhelmed to the point where you feel like you need to change things up!

Eating raw can help you feel lighter and improve your intestinal transit time through the high consumption of soluble and insoluble fiber. Eating raw can also help you lose excess water retention due to the low sodium content of the food you eat.

You could look at eating raw like a cleanse without the juices!

Going ‘raw’ isn’t as difficult as it seems!

You've watched all the documentaries, listened to the interviews and read the articles, but something is stopping you from trying out the raw food diet. The reason for this is probably because going raw means cutting out dairy, meat, and cooking; three things that have become quite habitual in a modern person's diet and routine. The trick to going raw and staying raw is to know which fresh foods you adore and to make sure they are always on hand. Plus, getting creative in the kitchen can help you explore the possibilities of the raw cuisine to ensure you aren't dining on a plate of raw carrots for dinner.

To make sure you are satisfied with every meal, we've teamed up with raw food enthusiast Chef Cynthia Louise in this challenge. Cynthia will have you dining on creamy alfredo pasta, wholesome puddings for breakfast and flavorsome salads that are as delicious as they are filling. After this challenge we guarantee you will have a newfound appreciation for the herbs and spices we have available to us!

Did a bunch of food prep today (and sampling of course) so I could have it readily available at work and home. I am ready to take this challenge on this week!

I have just finished the 5 Day Raw Food Challenge. I have really enjoyed the last 5 days. I found the meals huge, and I'm a big eater, but still managed to get through them. I didn't add any salt to my recipes and they still tasted great, my blood pressure which is good still went down a couple of points, probably due to not having ANY salt for these 5 days. I lost some weight, but what I also noticed was, my body fat decreased not that I had much to start with, but my husband and a friend of mine both commented that I looked leaner. I think I had caffeine withdrawal as I did have a headache for a couple of days. I will definitely be adding more raw meals to my diet after experiencing how easy it is to prepare them. I think my knife skills improved as there is a lot of chopping up of veggies lol. Thanks for all the help, via the videos and recipes they helped so much x
