Raw Diet

Often vegans, raw foodists typically eat 75 percent fruits and vegetables. The rest of the diet includes whole grains, nuts, beans and sprouted seeds. Instead of cooking meals, food is served raw or dehydrated. You’ll save energy by not cooking and lower your carbon footprint by giving up meat and packaged foods.
