How to Make the Transition to Living Foods

Please note that although an optimum diet would be 100% Live Foods, it may not always be possible or practical for everyone at all times. If you are new to Live Foods, just do the best you can and realize some Transitional Foods may occasionally be a part of one's diet. You may not be able to make juices to carry with you when you are away from home or whatever the case may be. Don't be condemned, just try to eliminate the most offending foods for your particular health situation. Everyone's body reacts differently to different foods. So experiment to find what works best for you! Remember, it might take awhile to find the perfect combination for your body type. Climate, air quality and other surroundings will also play a part. Take your time. Recommended reading: Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford. Please note that below is only a partial list. We could not possibly list every food, but give you the general idea.
