View Full Version : Fat intake

I have been reading rawbooks, posts, and people's daily menus and find that there are a lot of seeds, nuts, avocadoes, and coconuts listed. Why is that? It seems like almost every recipe is has one or more of these ingredients.

The reason for that is, when folk transition from a SAD to raw then need the fats to feel full. After they've been on it for awhile they will often naturally gravitate to less complicated and gourmet-type recipes to eating simpler and easier meals.
IF one is already vegan it's not so much of a transition.

I'm not an expert but for me the bit of fats at meals helps me stay balanced also fat helps with the metabolic process absorbing the digested meal.

From Victoria Boutenko's "7 common mistakes that occur on raw foods"
"2. People on raw food often consume too many fats. When they try to imitate
cooked dishes, they substitute starches with nuts. For example, when making
raw cakes, they mimic a wheat crust with a nut mixture. Solution: use nut
pulp left over from making nut milks, use more seeds and fewer nuts, and use
more fruit and vegetable pulp from juices in your mixtures, to minimize the
consumption of nuts."
