My Wonderfully Raw Journey
What I Learned Today!
I got a book from the library called Raw Controversies and it's by Frederic Patenaude and i've been to his website before when i was dabbling in the world of fruitarian. So far it's pretty good. I feel here repeats himself a lot and hasn't gotten to the interesting stuff yet. But i was reading something where he stated all the different types of raw food lifestyles and there were things i never heard of like sunfoodist, breatharians, and paleo! Now i was confused when i saw paleo cause i could've sworn that wasn't a raw food diet but some big fad like the atkins diet or something lol. But i looked it up and was surprised that it's sooo close to raw food except they eat whatever along with the "forbidden" food groups,some cooked food and shun grains and fruits. I didn't know this. I also did more research as to why people choose to eat like this and they feel this is the more natural way our ancestors ate and that we aren't frugivores but rather omnivores/faunivores all new terms i'd never heard of but scientifically are true. Now i'm going to learn about sunfoodist and breatharians there's soo much to learn!
Oh and I hate when people use the excuse this is how our ancestors were eating 1000 of years ago because for me honestly 1000 of years ago my ancestors were in Africa(DUH I'M BLACK) and certain food groups and sources as we all know are limited there. So if you want to eat like your ancestors were 1000 years ago figure that out and eat like them but don't apply it to everyone's ancestors! If i'm not mistaken i should be eating more goat milk, yams, meat, beans, insects and rice since Africans have lots of access to those food and less fruit(already nailed that one). Just saying...
