Raw Food Restaurants
Eating a raw food diet at home can be very easy, but not everyone has the time or energy to prepare food at home every day. Besides, who wants to be kept from ever being able to go out an enjoy themselves at a nice restaurant every again? Fortunately, there are a few raw food restaurants, and, even at those that aren’t, it’s possible for a raw foodist to find a decent meal. In fact some of my raw food influences were drawn from great restaurant food.
Raw food restaurants are easily found in big cities, but if you’re living somewhere with fewer amenities, you can still eat raw food when you’re dining out. Many other eateries that aren’t specifically raw food restaurants have a large selection of salads, or other raw dishes, and some chefs will be happy to let you order off-menu so they can show off their culinary skills. Still other places, like steak houses, can prepare meat or fish by searing it (a fast cooking method that produces a cooked crust on the outside of the meat, while leaving the inside raw and untouched), or even offer dishes tartare. Occasionally, you might come across a restaurant that is unwilling to serve raw meat or fish for health or safety reasons… in which case, it’s probably a good idea to reconsider if you’d be willing to order anything else from them, raw, cooked, or otherwise!
Despite the popularity of raw foodism, it can be hard to find a restaurant dedicated to raw food. If you’re lucky enough to find some good raw food restaurants, be sure to patronize them regularly, and recommend them to your friends.
