View Full Version : Winter and raw...

I am a little scared of the winder months and going raw.
Can raw food be filling during the snowy seasons?
Will the fresh food be abundant enough for me?

2) for fresh food, I like to sprout a lot in winter, various types of sprouts. Also much seasonal stuff can be stored - berries and peaches frozen, apples and squashes stored, tomatoes dried or frozen, etc., if you want good access to local fresh food in most of winter.

My staple is green smoothies made with a green apple, a banana and various lettuces. I can find those easily even in winter. Smoothies are pretty filling. Sometimes I leave fruit out on the counter so that it's room temperature by the time I eat it.

My first raw winter I lived in Ohio. I didn't find it hard at all. There were plenty of stores in my area that had fresh produce and I sprouted. Sprouts are a great way to get fresh food in the winter. I never felt overly cold or hungry. Actually I almost never even wore my coat even though it was freezing outside!

I also live where we have snowy winters. I actually did great while all raw. I actually stayed warmer than those around me.
I did notice though, that when I first went raw it took my body a few weeks to adjust and then it was better. I used my dehydrator more then until I adjusted.

There are a lot of winter hardy plants that you can use for nourishment. A lot of grains grow in the winter, as well as apples (autumn/winter) and cabbage and lettuce, I believe. then of course, there are also all sorts of nuts and exotic fruits like mangos and bananas and coconuts that are imported from places where it's still warm when we're having our winter.

I suppose that depends on where you live. Here in WA and in CA I had no problems getting good produce in the winter. In NY and MA (at least in the areas where I lived), fresh produce could be hard to come by.
