A big problem that confronts someone attempting to engage in a healthy diet is the inconvenience of trying to eat raw food.
The healthy, raw and natural foods that you need to eat, are not always readily available in food outlets where you live or work. Dehydrated fruits can be another tool in our arsenal as we learn how to lose weight.
Certainly, raw food vending machines, are not readily available, are they?
So if you get hungry during the day, you’re going to have a challenge of finding something appropriate to eat if you haven’t packed any raw fruits and vegetables. In the morning, when you may be pressed for time, it can be quite hard to find time to pack healthy food to eat during the day.
In order to have healthy food readily available during the day, it can help if you dehydrate some organic fruit and make fruit leathers to consume during the day. Fruit leathers have a similarity to the fruit roll ups that you see in grocery and convenience stores.
But it’s better to make your own commercial fruit leathers are going to be loaded with preservatives and sugars just the things you want to avoid.
Making your own dehydrated fruit and fruit leathers is not costly and it is not as difficult as you may think. While some food processors and juicers can get really pricey, a dehydrator isn’t going to cost that much and it’s a lifesaver to have fruit leathers, dried fruit or fruit jerky on hand when you can’t get out to the store for fresh food. It’s great to have this food handy, especially if you are on a rapid weight loss diet.
When you’re switching to a raw foods diet, that doesn’t always have to mean fresh off the farm. It means not cooking foods with processes that strip all the essential vitamins, amino acids and enzymes from them. Fruit dehydrating is a good way to add a nutritious, readily available food to your repertoire. In addition, it is not difficult to do. There are a lot of inexpensive food dehydrators and recipes available on the internet.
These are also great snacks to pack for your kids lunches! You get the full benefit of the organically grown raw food, just prepared so that it is readily available for consumption and resistant to spoiling!
