This months meeting for the Raw Food Course was in the Maynooth college. We went to a lecture there by Brian Clement, a doctor who is the director of Hippocrates Health Institue in Florida where people go to cleanse & heal from diseases, mainly cancer. He spoke for 4 hours, I like how he sipped on a green juice- I so wanted it! Also at the event were The Servents of Love serving great food, books, equipment, superfoods and supplements
He rated the best foods to consume with 5 * 's, then 4 * 's & so on.
On his 5* list are wild edible weeds, wheatgrass, sprouts, algae, seaweed & ripe tropical fruit.
The 4* list, edible flowers, garden veg, green sprouts, ripe olives, succulent fruits & young coconut.
3* has saurkruat, nuts, farm veg, sprouted grains & seeds, vine grown fruit & dehydrated veg on it.
2* root veg, mushrooms, sprouted beans (mung, audiki), dehydrated grains (bread, cookies)
1* salad dressing, raw chestnuts and dehydrated nuts, seeds, legumes, root veg.
As I see it everything on the is vegan & a wholefood which is better then a lot of stuff being called food these days. Depending where somone is on their health journey will determine what food list they start to eat from.
