I am often asked by people who are finding out about the RAW Food LIfestyle for the first time- ‘How do you keep your belly warm during the colder months?’. It falls into the ‘How do you get your protein?’ category of questions from learners and doubters. Easy for me. I add HOT spices and herbs to my RAW food and I also use my dehydrator to ‘warm’ foods to a tepid state.
Last night I needed ‘warming up’ and this is what I prepared. A simple and Piping RAW tomato soup with heaps of chilli and garlic..and HEMP seeds !! Served with seed snackers.
The cold winter months question can be addressed by thinking just a tad laterally. More intrinsically naturally hot foods do the trick. Chilli, ginger, turmeric, galangal, garlic, onion, kale and hemp. Kale and hemp you might say ? They are active plant proteins and they are like plasma for your warp core. They provide positive nutrients immediately to my bio system – try them out on yours and see what happens. I also find tomatoes very heating for my body – may be its the antioxidant lycopene in them, especially sun dried or dehydrated toms.
I love turmeric. Where I live in Australia it grows so well along with ginger and garlic. I add it into my food whenever I can. Its health giving qualities are amazing including helping to reboot the bodies immune system allowing it to remain strong and defensive against chronic illness.
So how are you going to warm you belly today? I thought it through and it works. Break the old spell of ‘Can’t Do’ to ‘CAN DO!!’ Have the courage to experiment with foods you might intuitively be drawn too and have a go!!
There is nothing more satisfying than a Great Belly Warmer.
