While you are cleansing, you have to maintain an all-raw foods diet. We don’t do this to punish you, although it may seem like that at times. The reason you only eat raw foods is because they help with the cleansing process, they are easy for you body to digest, and they give your body the essential nutrients that it needs to function like it should. It is also easier for the body to absorb the nutrients from the fresh fruits, vegetables, and raw nuts and seeds.
We always get asked, “What fruits and vegetables can I eat while cleansing?” Well, you can pretty much eat any fruit, vegetable, nut, or seed as long as everything you eat is raw; and you can eat until you are content. Yes, this even includes potatoes because you can actually juice potatoes, if you have a juicer. It is important to buy a wide variety of raw foods so that you are constantly eating different things. This also helps you get an assortment of nutrients in your diet. Some items help digestion, others promote kidney health, some help your liver, and there are those that boost the immune system.
