Raw Summer Salads

As the hot summer sun shines down on me, I crave and eat more raw food than any other time of the year. As my passion for clean eating deepens, it only makes sense to eat most, if not all, of my meals in its most natural state: RAW.

When I coach clients to start incorporating a clean eating lifestyle, I promote eating a diet that is 80% raw food. The most commonly asked question is: How do I eat that much raw? Individuals are afraid that they will become bored and not feel satisfied by eating so much raw food. However, once people start eating a diet high in raw food, they are even more satisfied than before, and they have a greater appreciation for food in its most natural state.

Here are some wonderful salads that you can not only eat in the summer, but these salads are great to serve all year long! They are full of variety, color and nutrients, and they will have your taste buds jumping for joy!
