Besides the usual: fresh fruits and vegetables; my favorite raw food is sushi. What's yours?
I also would have to say sushi!
Also, was surprised at the non-yuckyness of raw eggs in fruit smoothies!
Celery, carrots, tomatoes (sun-kissed cherry tomatoes right off the vine - Yum!), recently tried sushi and that wasn't too bad.
My former yoga teacher was a raw foodist for a while - nothing was cooked, it was a pretty interesting diet. She was a vegetarian so raw meat wasn't an issue but she was only on it for less than a year. I think she quit it b/c her body wasn't handling it well. But I've heard of others who are.
Tomatoes and cucumbers fresh from the garden. And fruit smoothies. We have a lot of fantastic fruit in Oregon, and I take full advantage of it. I picked 10 quarts of wild blackberries this month, and 44 pounds of peaches!
WOW! That's an awful lot of picking. I love berries off the bush and peaches-YUM I wrote a hub about making my very first peaches and pecan pie. Oh, it was sooo good. Tonight I used blackberries and raspberries in a dessert recipe that turned out just as delicious.
A warm, fresh apple that is so ripe it just comes off in your hand from the tree. That would have to be an English apple from an English tree, of course. I've eaten fresh apples grown in Australia and New Zealand (Have lived in the Southern Hemisphere since 1951) but have never tasted an apple as good as those I ate as a boy in England.
And what often added to the flavour was they were often apples stolen from someone else's orchard or garden. 'Scrumping' was the term we used for it.
All fruits and also I like carrots, grated carrots and tomatoes.
All fruits and tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce and sprout beans.
I'm super paranoid about eating anything raw other than fruits and veggies so I would have to say my favorite raw food is baby carrots.
I love baby carrots right from the garden just wipe off the dirt and eat and cucumbers raw...and golden delicious apples yumm
I'm with you 100% on sushi but it has caused me so many problems over the years, it's unbelievable, as hardly anyone else I know likes it!
A big problem for me was the fact that my ex was allergic to all fish and seafood so I certainly couldn't eat sushi when she was around. Unfortunately, even many friends balked at the idea and most of my sushi eating experiences have actually been solo ones.
You may be interested in an experiment a fishing friend and I conducted just a few weeks ago. We had seen a very basic and down to Earth British celebrity chef (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall) catching mackerel and eating them virtually live. We were on a mackerel fishing trip and decided to give it a go. There was no danger of contamination as we were fishing in pristine waters on a Scottish sea loch. (This is not recommended in more commercially frequented waters.)
We basically killed a mackerel, immediately filleted it and tried it. I ate a couple of pieces - my friend subtly disposed of his first piece. It had an almost "Earthy" taste to it. Definitely needed a bit of pepper and lemon juice but it was an interesting experiment anyway that I don't regret. You definitely don't get fresher, that's for sure!
Wow-how interesting, Gordon. It definitely would be worth giving it a try. Sorry to hear about the 'gastric' conflict between you and sushi. It is so much fun to eat, although, lately I've actually just dipped the fish or what not into the wasabi sauce after knocking off the white rice. I know it kind of defeats the whole purpose of the recipe but I sure don't need any extra starch like that.
Spinach, grape tomatoes and cucumbers for salads and for raw juice, apples, cucumber ginger and lime!

I've heard a lot lately about eating "raw" foods and how healthy it is supposed to be. Does anyone know about this and how you'd begin?

Why do most people eat more cooked food than raw food?Most people gravitate to cooked food (over raw food) without thinking about it. What is the reason for this among people - both in a general sense and specific to you.
