Raw food herbs and spices provide the real magic to making delicious raw food recipes in your raw food kitchen. These are the elements we sprinkle on like fairy dust that make raw food truly come alive with flavor!

Now granted, fresh organic fruits and vegetables can be bursting with delicious flavor all by themselves - that's one of the joys of the raw food diet! But as you combine foods and add perhaps a splash of lemon juice, a clove of garlic, and just the right raw food herbs and spices, you can create masterpieces of culinary pleasure!

I don't know about you, but as I've spent more and more time as a raw foodist, I seem to have discovered some kind of knack for sprinkling on just the right type of herb or spice, in just the right amount, without even measuring! I can taste the food as I'm preparing it and know just what kind of element it is missing and add that one extra touch that gives food an extra depth, or tanginess, or saltiness, or perfect herb combination. It is so fun to be creative in a raw food kitchen!

In the list below, I have put together what I consider the top must-have single herbs and spices - these are the ones I seem to use again and again for most raw food recipes.

I have also included an additional list of some of my favorite premade herb and spice mixtures, so you can grab just one bottle of Mexican Seasoning, for example, every time you want to make a Mexican flavored dish.

Have fun with these raw food herbs and spices - this is where your culinary genius will grow wings and soar!

Just how good does it feel to be raw? FABULOUS! I remember when I wasn't eating raw food, I was overweight, unhappy with how I looked, full of pain all over my body, more prone to sickness and could get moody. Now, being 100% raw, I have lost weight, regained my self-love and self-respect, released the pain and feel this vibrant energy throughout my being, as well as a constant sense of peace, joy and love! I totally vouch for the benefits of this lifestyle. This is the way to live life to the fullest!

Not only does eating raw feel good, but it tastes good, too! The things you can make with fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are practically limitless, and amazingly delicious. The trick is to learn how to use just the right organic herbs and spices to season your creations to perfection. I happen to love the pre-made organic seasoning blends to instantly shake on some Mexican, some Oriental, some Creole, or some Thai! This really makes raw fun and easy!
