The whole world cooks rice and beans as a staple.
Since I prefer uncooked foods, rice and beans are difficult to prepare other than sprouting them, and that counts as eating greens.
I don't live in winter climate so fresh produce year round is more accessable here in California.
It's surprising what backyard growers can produce. We meet once per month with our local raw food support group and exhange produce and greens; the abundant harvest is given away free.
A neighbor has an orange tree and I bring her produce to the raw food support group pot luck. In exchange, I bring back papaya or passion fruit to my neighbor, and take a some oranges home.
Most persons in our support group grow backyard gardens or have a hand full of orchard trees and it is wonderful to eat this diversified and ripe produce. Moreso, the produce has that life giving, life healing electricity in each bite and fortifies your body and frees it up from malady.
Rawfoodism is a lifestyle. If I am not near a live food source, I would walk till I drop to find one.
(and carry some beans)
And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”
