An all-natural, raw biblical plant-based diet is the cornerstone of the Hallelujah Diet. It is based entirely on what has been from the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth and then the people, in His image and likeness. It was at this very moment that God established how humans would feed and nourish their bodies. As stated at Genesis 1:29:
“And God said,” Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; it will serve you food. [food]. ‘”
At the beginning
It is this exact biblical passage that serves as the foundation of the Alleluia Diet, as the Rev. Malkmus wrote in his book: “And the pattern was established in Genesis 1:29 to keep this life, transferred from one life to another for the consumption of living food. ” According to the Rev. Malkmus, living food is an essential and suitable fuel for the body and its living cells. Eating a diet rich in raw plant-based foods can help maintain and promote optimal health.
The proportion of raw foods
The daily nutrition breakdown of this diet is 85:15, or 85 percent live food and 15 percent vegan cooked food, according to “The Hallelujah Diet.” It’s important to keep in mind that living food intake shouldn’t be limited to 85 percent; Of course, these foods can take up more of your daily intake if you so desire. These foods increase vigorous health and robust energy as well as keeping you full and satisfied. Here is a list of live foods to include in your diet:
- Fruits: Includes all fresh fruits and organic nuts without sulfur, although fruit intake should not exceed 15 percent of daily raw foods.
- Vegetables: Eat and enjoy all the raw vegetables you want.
- Nuts and seeds: Eat raw almonds, raw almond butter, tahini, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts and nuts in moderation.
- Beans and grains: Includes green beans, peas, sprouted beans, sprouted lentils, sprouted mongoose, soaked oats, millet, raw muesli, granola or dehydrated crackers, raw ground flax seeds and sprouted grains of any kind.
- Dairy alternatives: Fresh milk can be consumed when derived from rice, coconut, oats and nuts, such as almond milk.
- Drinks: All freshly squeezed vegetable juices and distilled water are great options. Available on Hallelujah Diet are BarleyMax, CarrotJuiceMax and BeetMax.
Live foods also include all raw soups, condiments such as parsley, sweet onions, garlic, fresh and dehydrated herbs and unsalted condiments. For sweets, you can eat raw fruit cakes with dates or nuts, fruit smoothies and squares of dates or nuts. Oil options include extra virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, flaxseed oil and avocados.
High temperatures in food can have very detrimental effects on our body. Rev. Malkmus puts it bluntly: “The difference between raw food and cooked food is the difference between life and death.” However, when properly prepared and consumed in moderation, cooked foods can satisfy the body and help maintain the necessary body weight. These are the cooked foods that can be consumed following their portions of raw foods:
- Fruits: This includes frozen or stewed fruit that is not sugary.
- Vegetables: Fresh or frozen vegetables can be steamed or wok cooked. Baked white or sweet potatoes and pumpkin are also good.
- Beans and grains: You can eat Lima beans, adzuki, black, kidney, marine, pintos, red, white and others. Whole grains, muffins, breads, pastas and brown rice, spelled, millet and amaranth can be used.
- Dairy alternatives: Includes butter and nuts and dairy-free milk.
- Drinks: Includes bottled organic juices, cereal-based coffee drinks and decaffeinated herbal teas.
These cooked foods, which make up 15 percent of your diet, can also include condiments such as light gray unrefined sea salt, cayenne pepper, and all fresh, dried herbs, albeit in moderation. For sweeteners, date sugar, pure maple sugar, stevia, carob, rice syrup, raw and unfiltered honey, and sulfur-free molasses can be used, but also in moderation. Mayonnaise made with cold pressed oils and grape seed oil can be used for cooking.
Maintaining this 85:15 ratio is the best way to make sure you are feeding your body properly for optimal health.
