Raw diets are becoming more and more common with the increasing popularity of cold-pressed juice, veggie noodles and the overall desire to eat more wholesome and less processed foods. There are many different schools of thought about what is classified as raw. Some believe that raw foods are those that are never exposed to heat. Some believe that raw foods are those not heated past 120° F. Others include foods that have been fermented or dried. The following are a great selection of raw gluten-free recipes to try. I have included a fancy green juice, an easy-to-make snack bar, a simple avocado lunch and a flavor-packed poke bowl. These recipes can be adjusted to put your own spin on them. Get creative, experiment and have fun trying something new.
