Puhe… the biggest challenge to be raw.. well.. life is full of challenges, isn´t it?! every day we are challenged by something, big or small.. but being in the moment kind of blows this challenges away.. in a way.. because then whe don´t get the chance to over think and overdo and yes, think! in the moment we follow our guts! ..the core.. the heart.. so the biggest challenge I would say, no matter if we are talking raw or just life.., that´s being in the now.. now..
but of course when I start thinking there are lots of challenges on being raw.. like traveling! It tend to make that so complicated! Traveling with the whole house like a snail..
and choosing from all these yummy recipes.. uhe.. that´s tricky … sometimes it would be nice if you could just eat those pictures! or at least taste them so you could find out what to make..
but challenges are always an opportunity.. so let´s just face them!
love Olof

My biggest challenge with eating raw is consistency and eating my recipes before they spoil.
I think that I’m going to invest in a vacuum sealer but I have to find the best one for my needs.
Then there’s the confidence factor of knowing that what I prepare will taste as well as my cooked food recipes.

My biggest challenge is making sure I get enough protein. I love the diet but find it a challenge keeping my weight up!

My biggest challenge is the crunch of those yummy raw foods. My jaws are dislocated, so I need lots of smoothies and foods that are not too hard to chew.

My biggest challenge is while travelling away for work finding appropriate things to eat. My blender isn’t very portable and I so miss my green smoothies!

Breaking the habit of eating late in the evening. Not hungry at all, just mindless eating. Grabbing anything in the fridge, usually not raw.

My biggest challenge is to make a variety of raw food dishes.. Without a good food processor and dehydrator. It’s kind of limited choices and monotonous.

My greatest challenge with raw food is having the time to combine all the right ingredients into a tasty meal…& not feeling guilty when I need to throw it away because it didn’t turn out well!:)

I love eating raw and have made the change just this year. Its a toss up though as to what my biggest challenge being raw might be. For one I over shop at the farmer’s market and I try not to waste food, so I need to learn control there, its like I’ll never see another bunch of beautiful kale or an organic mango again in this life and I have to get it along with all the other goodies. Then there is Amazon.com, I want all the raw food gadgets NOW, not to mention every raw food “cook book.” I have put a dent or 2 in my budget but I am having such a blast with my dehydrator and blender, for starters. I guess basically, now I need some balance in my life :) Your amazing site and recipes have really been inspiring. Thanks for that. I feel SO much better on a raw diet and will never be far from a green drink ever again. Keep the great recipes coming! :)

My challlenge with raw food is convincing my daughters to eat what I eat! My hushand eats almost 80% of what I cook so I am really happy! Love your blog and your books ! Congratulations and thank you for inspiring us!

Often the recipes are a bit too large for one person but they won’t process in a blender or food processer if cut down. Then I’m left with trying to figure out how to store this raw recipe that can go bad faster than I will eat it! I’ve tried freezing left over recipes to see how it goes – tips from readers would be appreciated! :)

My biggest challenge is the packing of food before I leave to go show my cutting horses. I have a vita mixer, that is sometimes just too much to pack around and the smaller bullet would help out a lot. The mixing of a smoothie in the a.m. before I start preparing to show could cut down on time spent preparing food for me. Love your sight!

My biggest raw challenge is finding good fresh food when traveling overseas. I don’t eat in the restaurants. I find the local market, buy fresh produce, wash it well in water I’ve treated, and eat a mono raw diet on these trips. Having a Nutribullet to carry with me would solve some problems and allow more variety.

I find it challenging on nights when I don’t feel like “cooking” to find restaurants where I can get really good raw dishes.

My biggest challenge is eating enough vegetables and fruit throughout each day. I used to have a juicer until my sister broke it and I haven’t replaced it since. The juicer was an easier method to get in more of my raw foods at once and take it on the go.

The biggest challenge I find, with maintaining the raw lifestyle, is the winter. Finding quality produce to sustain the lifestyle becomes more difficult when the seasons shift.

My biggest challenge is that I crave warm/hot foods. In the summer, that’s fine. But in the winter, it’s harder.

My biggest challenge is meal prep time. I still prepare cooked meals for my family and by the time I get to my meal, I default to a wrap or salad cause its quick and easy. I would like more interesting meals for myself but I don’t wish to spend my entire eventing preparing meals, eating then going to bed.

I would say my biggest challenge is the fact that my husband & I are living with his mother right now & there is never any room for our food or kitchen equipment….also its hard to make anything as beautiful as yours but I am still trying!! :) you’re a great motivator :)

My biggest challenge is that i’m the only one in my home, my friends, my job, and in my family that eats a raw food meal plan. They are constantly giving me their negative opinions. I am also the one that prepares the food in my home and find it difficult to maintain a raw lifestyle when having to prepare cooked foods for my family. I fee

My biggest challenge is eating when traveling. If going by car I always pack a big salad, frozen green smoothies and several days worth of juices. When traveling by air it is a little more challenging. I’ve started packing a cashew cheese wrap that holds up nicely and passes through security, also nuts, fruit, etc.

My biggest challenge is balancing my intake so that I get my my body requires. I’ve been sick for years and it can be difficult to research to determine the food to help and then getting enough of those foods in my diet to make a difference in my health. Juicing and blending helps.

My biggest challenge with eating raw is the how much food I need to chew! No seriously, the thought of having to chew every meal, when you’re accustomed to skipping meals, is daunting! I need to change my eating habits though and I’m sure once I get the hang of eating raw, and couple it with meal planning, I’ll do fine.

One of my biggest challenges of being a Raw Foodist is traveling and making Green Smoothies without my high powered blender.

My biggest challenge is that I travel for work. I try to bring my own snacks, but most of the time I wind up eating salads or a plate of veggies. It’s hard to get a variety. I have a Vitamix at home, but it doesn’t help much when I have to travel by plane. I’d love to be able to make green smoothies on the go.

Eating Raw is great for me since I’m a diabetic without medical care or meds. However, I also have old and dull dentures, so I find it hard to chew the food. A nutri-bullet looks like it would solve my problem.

I have a few issues with raw…none has to do with taste. My biggest issue is money! I want to do raw, organic fruits and veggies but the prices are so high that I can only choose one — the organic spinach or kale, but then what about the fruit that should always be purchased organic such as strawberries, cherries, etc. I become depressed and just get the kale (non organic and a banana. The amount that green smoothies suggest are larger than the amount I can afford. Would smaller, single servings be better? I am 58 years old with a $400 a month income for bills, and food. I am thankful for what I have. I just need to know how to incorporate raw on a limited income.

We travel about once or twice a month, during hockey season, to see my son at school. It is an 8 hour drive and we spend the weekend. I always try to load up on veggies, fruit and healthy crackers plus some energy bars and breads with nut butter to snack on in the car and in the hotel room. But dining out is always an issue. I could easily pack ingredients for a healthy raw drink/smoothie but would need a Nutri-Bullet to blend it up!! What a great idea! I could eat a healthy drink before heading out with the family (might even get them to enjoy a healthy drink as well) and then get to the restaurant to figure out what I can eat off the menu:)
Love your website and gorgeous photography! Thanks!

The biggest challenge for me is psychological– I general do fine when I’m living alone & doing my own thing but when it;s a holiday and I’m visiting with family memories of happy times associated with specific foods get the best of me. For example, EVERY special occasion (birthday, graduation, father/mother’s day etc) my mom makes her famous brownies….I’ve tried but raw food recipes cant match the taste because it’s so specific. Plus, trying to match past foods like that just makes me too much in general.

My biggest challenge is time! I am a student, and to find time to eat ANYTHING is hard!!! I really enjoy when I do find time, to search for a very yummy and healthy food recipe! I guess it will be quick and simple if I have a nutri bullet ! :)
Tks for the lovely website and the info about raw food!!!!

My biggest challenge with raw food is getting my husband to eat raw. If the food is a sweet, then it’s not so much a challenge, but everything else that is packed full of goodness he does not see the same way.

My biggest issue with raw food is that I can’t afford a good high speed blender. People rave about the Vitamix, the Blendtec, etc. but I just can’t manage something so nice with my budget. The Nutribullet looks like it would be a perfect substitute for those blenders which cost hundreds of dollars. I would SO love to use one to be able to make fresh smoothies, soups, dips, and the like! :D

Shanna September 1, 2013 at 1:48 pm

The largest hindrance I have in being mostly raw, is being organized enough to prepare raw for me and “regular” for my husband. He is willing to try some things, but maybe only once a week. I just need more time, the illusive thing of the universe, right?

My biggest challenging is variety and planning. I tend to rely on a few favorite salad combinations. At least once or twice a week, I will make a recipe from this or other raw food blogs but making the recipe requiress planning to ensure I have all the right ingredients.

My biggest problem is making time to prepare food ahead of time. I work until 8:30 PM teaching students, so blending a raw soup after work would be ideal, but I’d need to prep food much earlier in the day. Perhaps it’s time to enlist my newly retired husband! Appreciate all your beautiful recipes!
