Nicole and Lori from Rawthenticity review some cooked food exceptions that raw vegan fruitarians will make on a fully raw diet.
In this video, Nicole and Lori talk about the following:
1. sweeteners (coconut sugar, maple syrup, and coconut nectar)
2. condiments (soy sauce substitutes including tamari, coconut aminos, and Bragg’s liquid aminos)
3. frozen foods (frozen peas and frozen corn)
4. dried fruit
6. nuts and seeds (cashews, tahini, and peanut butter)
9. nutritional yeast
This video be especially helpful for people who are new to the raw vegan fruitarian lifestyle (or interested in transitioning to it), or those who have questions about particular ingredients.
When we first went “fully raw,” we were confused about what ingredients we could still eat besides fresh fruits and veggies. We hope this video helps to clarify this for you.

Aside from the topics listed above, we love answering any additional, and perhaps more personal questions that you have.
The ability to develop a positive, healthy relationship with food coincides with developing a positive and healthy relationship with ourselves. There is so much more to healing on this lifestyle aside from the food. In order to make positive, healthy food choices, it is so important that we develop self-love. The more we love ourselves, the more we will prefer to make food choices that make us feel good and alive. The more we love ourselves, the more we can stay true to the choices that our intuitive self is guiding us to make.
When we create space in our lives to listen to our true self within, not only will we be guided to making healthy food choices, we will be guided to live an authentic, whole-hearted life in every way. Raw food is an amazing way of nourishing ourselves on a mind, body, and soul level, so that we can experience the most out of us at if you’re interested in a 1-week trial of our Rawthenticity Online group!
