Roland Recommends the Best 16 Rawfood Products to Start With

People have often told me that they are new to rawfoods and they have asked what foods they should start with. I can easily understand this question since there are so many choices of rawfoods and it can be very bewildering when one hears about these strange new names like spirulina, maca, goji, mangosteen, msm, cacao, mesquite, lucuma, yacon, and so on. I have compiled a diet plan and a list of 15 foods that I feel would be beneficial for most everyone to eat. Further on, I suggest some rawfood products for specific goals or issues like improving one's fitness level, for losing weight, and tasty snacks.

In general, I recommend everyone eat an organic, raw, vegan diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sea vegetables, sprouts, herbs, and wild foods. No matter what your current diet is I recommend that everyone at least eat lots of green smoothie everyday. Green smoothies will provide your body with lots of chlorophyll, minerals and vitamins, all of which are severely lacking in the modern diet and very important to our health. To learn more about green smoothies, view this article:

In addition, I recommend everyone take these 16 foods as the basis for a healthy lifestyle. The 16 recommended foods are Premier Research Max B-ND, Cacao Powder, Camu Camu Powder, Chlorella, Digestive Enzymes, Goji Berries, Hempseed, Maca Powder, Marine Phytoplankton, Mesquite Powder, MSM, Noni Powder, Probiotics, Spirulina, Vitamineral Green, and Yacon Syrup. I recommend these 16 incredible foods for everyone mostly because they provide an incredible array of nutrients, especially minerals and vitamins, which are severely lacking from most people's diets. Here I explain in some more detail each superfoods benefits.

Roland Recommended 16 Best Rawfood Products to Start With:
Premier Research Max B-ND
Max B-ND provides all of the essential B Vitamins including Vitamin B12, which is essential for everyone. Adequate levels of B Vitamins are often lacking in restricted diets, such as the vegan diet. Max B-ND is in liquid form so it is easy to add to water or juice.
2 Cacao Powder
Cacao Powder is recommended since it is the highest source of antioxidants of any food, and it has excellent levels of minerals, especially magnesium.
Camu Camu Powder
Camu Camu Powder is very important since it is a great source of Vitamin C which humans need in abundance for proper health.
Chlorella has great minerals and nutrients, and is a great detoxifier, especially of heavy metals.
5 Digestive Enzymes
Digestive Enzymes are very important to proper digestion. All rawfood have enzymes intact, but these enzymes are decreased through processing. Cooking food above 115 degrees F destroys all enzymes. Our bodies can make it own enzymes, especially when we are young, but as we age, our supplies diminish, leaving us with an inability to properly digest and assimilate foods. This lack of enzymes and inability to digest foods ages our bodies fast. The solution is take supplemental digestive enzymes to properly digest foods. Active Enzymes by Bio International are one of the best enzymes available since it is all vegan and has a high concentration of enzymes so you don't have to take many capsules to reap the benefits.
6 Goji Berries
Goji Berries are a superfood of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and promote longevity.
7 Hempseed
Hempseed is important for its high levels of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and it is a wonderful protein as well.
8 Maca Powder
Maca Powder is cornucopia of health promoting minerals and vitamins, and is important for sexual health.
9 Marine Phytoplankton
Marine Phytoplankton has a multitude of life enhancing nutrients like chlorophyll, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, minerals, protein, vitamins, and much more.
10 Mesquite Powder
Mesquite Powder is full of minerals, protein, vitamins, and lysine which helps build strong bone and teeth. I also like Mesquite Powder for its wonderful, naturally sweet flavor that makes almost any dish taste better.
MSM is a sulfur mineral that is important to healthy skin, bones, and joints. MSM also helps to clear away the arthritis and other calcification issues.
12 Noni Powder
Noni Powder is a powerful antimicrobial and antifungal food. Noni Powder will strengthen the immune system with its polysaccharides and will help one live a long life. Like MSM, Noni is also a bad calcium dissolver.
13 Probiotics
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that would normally inhabit our digestive tracts. Unfortunately, there are many modern life issues that decrease their numbers, such as antibiotics, tap water, etc., leaving us with impaired digestion, poor assimilation of nutrients, and leaving us vulnerable to a bacterial disease. Ultimate Pro SBOs by Bio International are an excellent probiotics formula, being vegan, and having an extremely high number of 48 strains of friendly bacteria. No other probiotics formula comes close.
14 Spirulina
Spirulina provides the highest level of protein in the world, 65%.
15 Vitamineral Green

Vitamineral Green has many algaes, grasses, greens, land vegetables, sea vegetables, enzymes, probiotics, and more forming a complete superfood that supports overall health. If you can take only one product, this is it. Pure Synergy is an alternative that is also excellent.
Yacon Syrup
Yacon Syrup is an excellent sweetener that is low glycemic, a prebiotic (stimulates beneficial bacteria helping with digestion and better colon health), is alkaline, an antioxidant, helps manage cholesterol, aids in fat metabolism, boosts the immune system, helps with detoxification, and is suitable for low calorie and low sugar diets.

Please keep in mind that this list is a general recommendation. Of course, everyone is different and everyone has different needs. So, feel free to pick and choose as you like from this list. There are other great foods that I did not mention here, since I wanted to keep the list short. I created this list to be meant as a general foundation of rawfoods to keep one in great health. Other rawfoods can certainly be added to one's diet.

If you are looking for rawfoods to help your fitness or workout regimen, in addition to the rawfood diet mentioned above, there are several products that offer additional benefits. Sun Warrior Protein provides the highest non soy, raw, vegan, whole grain, sprouted protein on the market. Sun Warrior Activated Barley provides sustained energy and controls hunger during prolonged workouts. I also recommend Sequel Naturals whole line of Vega products that were designed for vegan athletes in mind by vegan triathlete, Brendan Brazier. Their fitness oriented products include Vega Antioxidant EFA Oil Blend, Vega Whole Food Energy Bar, MacaSure Certified Organic Maca Root Extract, Vega Complete Whole Food Health Optimizer, Vega Sport Performance Optimizer, Vega Whole Food Shake & GO Smoothie, and Vega Whole Food Smoothie Infusion.

For weight loss, in addition to following a rawfood diet, the Golden Spice Elixir is great for increasing the power and speed of the body's waste removal.

Everyone needs some tasty snacks from time to time are there are many healthy rawfood snacks that are satisfying to one's appetite. For sweet snacks, I recommend Blue Mountain Organics' Rawfood Bakery line of foods. I especially think their Apple Pecan Cinnamon Granola, Cacao Walnut Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie, Essene Oatmeal Apple Cookie with Dates, all of the Macaroons, and their Better Than Roasted™ Mystic Mountain Trail Mix are the tastiest. Living Intentions' Superfood Cereals and Gone Nuts, especially Maple Mesquite, Raw Cacao Almonds & Raisins, and White Chocolate Chip Cashews, Almonds & Cacao Nibs are all great tasting. All of Laughing Giraffe's foods taste great too, especially the Snakaroons. The Rawnola Breakfast Cereal is another winner. For more savory tasting snacks, Blue Mountain Organics' brand of Kale Earth Chips are delightful snacks.
