Fortunately for those of us newly interested in eating organic and raw foods, there are lots of products out there. Natural and organic foods used to be found only in natural food stores, and those could be few and far between. While not as ubiquitous as McDonald’s, there ARE many more stand-alone stores. And the grocery chains are catching on too, with more organic selections than ever before. If you don’t see them in your grocery store, just ask. You’re probably not the only person in your neighborhood who’d like to see more of these options.
Many grocery stores now feature sprouts and other living foods in the produce aisle. Of course, if they don’t, there’s nothing easier to grow for yourself than sprouts!
There are also a lot of web sites on the Web where you can purchase raw and living foods. Just try a search on raw foods and you’ll come up with a wide range of unique places to order the foods you’d like to get. A number of these web sites are also packed with helpful information, to help you find out about eating raw foods, and help educate you on the specific food values.
What else? Experiment with what you like. Take the time to learn a little about what the different nutrients in foods do for you. A few examples:
Shitake mushrooms – consist of important fatty acids and antioxidants to support a healthy immune system.
Barley – Full of niacin, fiber and iron and is necessary for healthy blood sugar.
Pumpkin – So rich in fiber and vitamins; helps reduce appetite by filling the stomach with indigestible fibers
