There’s a HUGE drawback to cooked food that none of these “partially or highly cooked” raw food gurus ever mention.
You can never do “The Happy Dance” after eating cooked food.
Let me explain by telling you a quick story.
Several weeks back Karmyn was telling me how every cell in her body was doing a happy dance after drinking her freshly squeezed “raw” juice. I’ve had that experience from drinking raw juices and raw foods many times myself.
But NEVER did I ever do the happy dance when I drank pasteurized orange juice from the supermarket.
There simply is NO cooked food that could ever give you the happy dance feeling.
It’s an impossibility.
What would give you more of a happy dance feeling?
Eating a bowl of cereal or eating a bowl of grapes?
There’s no comparison possible in terms of the uplifting vibrations of the food.
One takes you up and the other takes you down.
This is one category where cooked food loses every single time.
The reason is the HAPPINESS FACTORS are killed by the cooking process. You don’t need any scientific degree to figure this out.
Just compare how alive and bubbly you feel with eating raw foods compared to any cooked food.
You’ll notice this especially in perfectly sun-ripened and in season water rich fruits.
You’ll never feel that inner giddiness with steamed vegetables either because the life force has been removed from the food.
Here’s the bottom line.
The more raw foods you eat the happier your cells will become and the happier you’ll be.
Cooking food takes the happiness out of it.

Making the Raw Food Diet Effortless through Tastiness
P.S. A vitally important secrit to going raw and doing so without willpower is having food for dinnertime you absolutely adore. That’s because dinnertime is when the strongest cooked food cravings come up in at least 98% of the people I’ve worked with.
I recommend having 3 to 5 raw savory or dinnertime recipes mastered before you even try going raw. That means you should make each recipe at least 10 times to get a sense of mastery.
And I think you’ll really love our new “Beefy Bone Builder Stew” (I’ve made it over 100 times) which we’ve recently added to the Savory Veggie Stews program.
In my opinion Savory Veggie Stews makes it at least twice as easy to go raw.
But don’t just take my word for it…
Ok, I have been contemplating going raw for quite some time now, but was never sure how to go about it.I have made many green smoothies but, frankly, the thought of drinking my way raw wasn’t all that appealing. I also bought a raw “cook” book, but the recipes were so involved with all the soaking and pre-planning that went into them that I considered them too complicated and time consuming.
Then, I found your site about Savory Vege Stews and that got my attention, so I decided to purchase the recipes. At first I was afraid to try them, although I purchased all the ingredients and also the chopper. I was afraid they wouldn’t be as good as you kept saying they were. Sorry. I am skeptical. But today I made my first SVS the Pizza Variety. DELICIOUS!!!! My husband even tried it. He concurred. Ok, I’m sold and on my way to becoming 100% raw.
I just made my second savory veggie soup. The first one I followed Rogers instructions and was more than delighted, it really hit the spot for something savory and chewy after a day of eating only fruit. The second I did from memory and made a few additions to my likeng, I also warmed it up to about 100 deg. F. which for me rally improved it and enhanced the flavor quite a bit. Nice on a cold winters evening.
I’m a 2-year colon cancer survivor. Eating raw seemed a natural healing choice, and I have loved the journey. Recently I’ve struggled to stay about 90 -95% raw. I found SVS two days ago. What a difference, in both my mental attitude and in palate satisfaction! I’ve had several variations of SVS by now, and am totally satisfied and confident that this was the next step for me. Thank you for easy-to-follow directions and suggestions. Guess what I’m taking to our Raw Potluck next week??!!
Hi Roger, Naren here, I just wanted to make this audio as a way of thanking you wholeheartedly for sharing your Veggie Stew recipe with me. Before, before I learned it one of the biggest problem I had with the raw diet was having to eat tons of vegetables on a daily basis. And so what I would do is try to make these massive salads everyday, because I knew I had to get calories in. I would add nuts and seeds and sauces just so they would taste good.
The problem was they didn’t taste good. Even if I was adding all of these different things, the quantity I had to eat was just crazy so I could get the number of calories I needed. And so what I was doing is eating this out of willpower, not because I really, really enjoyed it. And after a while I gave up because I thought, you know, food is all about enjoying life—I mean the fast food I really enjoyed, and when I got your recipe I was kind of taken back by the claims you made because I didn’t really believe them.
How can you get simple vegetables and blend them together, you know tomatoes. I can even remember the first time I made it and followed through your recipe after getting it. Put the tomatoes in, put the cucumbers in, put the celery in, I was like, you know, this stuff tastes really bland by itself, I mean how is it going to taste amazing?
Really skeptical even as I made it, and I thought, you know what, I’m probably going to be asking for a refund real soon because this isn’t going to taste good.
And when I had the first spoonful, Roger, I was taken back! Seriously, um, no lies it was amazing to taste and I didn’t even make the best one.
I remember it was kind of runny, and I didn’t really use the best vegetables, um, some of them were kind of almost on the verge of being out of date and but I was just kind of so so eager to make it because I just bought the recipe.
And now of course I use organic stuff and I use different kinds of vegetables, I have my own ways of changing the recipe, but even that first time I tried it it was so amazing so I just wanted to thank you for sharing an amazing recipe that has really changed my life.
It’s given me something that tastes so amazing, and just changed the way, the way I view raw food. It tastes so good, I know I keep saying that, but listen you have really changed my life, you have helped me find a way of eating that is so beneficial.
And you know, just life in a bowl, is what your stews are to me.
So thank you again Roger. Take it easy.
