FullyRaw by Kristina is an online raw food diet website that promises to help anyone go “FullyRaw” with the right recipes, meal plans, and nutritional guidance. Here’s our review.
What is FullyRaw by Kristina?
FullyRaw by Kristina is a raw food lifestyle website that comes packed with everything you need to support your raw food lifestyle. The website can be found online at FullyRaw.com.
At that website, Kristina shares various tips and tricks about joining the raw food movement. Kristina’s specific raw food diet involves eating nothing but 100% vegan, 100% raw food, so all recipes on the website align with this goal.
It’s all fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds with no cooking, baking, or microwaving required.
Kristina’s full name, by the way, is Kristina Carrillo Bucaram. The official website describes Kristina as a “pioneer in the local, organic food co-operative movement.”
Kristina herself has eaten nothing but 100% raw vegan food for over 11 years (she recently celebrated the 11 year anniversary on her YouTube channel in this video).
In other words, Kristina has not used a microwave, oven, or anything else to cook her food in 11 years. As she explains in the above video (in a tongue in cheek way), “How am I still alive?”
Her answer? She’s careful about what she eats and she’s careful to balance her nutritional requirements. She claims she is perfectly healthy and has no nutritional deficits.
At the FullyRaw website, you’ll find an eBook called the 14 Day Body Reset. That eBook explains how you can reset and detoxify your body in 14 days by simply adopting a raw food diet.
Kristina is also known for her paperback book, The FullyRaw Diet. That book explains Kristina’s lifestyle, including the benefits of the raw food diet and the specifics on how to adopt that diet. Kristina recently went on a book tour to promote her book.
She also founded an organic produce co-operative in the United States.
Obviously, Kristina is very passionate about a vegan, 100% raw food diet. So let’s take a closer look at some of the products she has for sale on her official website.
What is the 14 Day Body Reset?
The 14 Day Body Reset is a downloadable eBook sold through FullyRaw.com. The eBook is priced at $3.99 USD and explains how you can adopt the raw food diet for 14 days to enjoy various health benefits. Key features of the program include:
-14 daily meal plans and exercise routines
-Raw vegan recipes and principles
-Workouts and fitness tips
-Videos to accompany the recipes and workouts
-Weight loss tips and tricks
-Skin care tips for FullyRaw eaters
In other words, it’s a collection of meal plans and recipes, workout guides, and tips designed to help you adopt the raw food diet. Kristina explains specific recipes like her “secret soulshine juice” and her “fruit-infused vitamin water.”
FullyRaw by Kristina Recipes
In addition to the downloadable eBook, Kristina’s website features a variety of recipes that use nothing but 100% raw vegan food.
The recipes section is separated into four different sections, including:
-My FullyRaw & Vegan Thanksgiving Menu for 2015: Last year, in 2015, Kristina created a Thanksgiving dinner that was 100% raw and vegan-friendly. That meal plan was posted on YouTube and her official website.
Some of the highlights of Thanksgiving dinner 2015 included a pomegranate kale pecan avocado salad, a holiday stuffing with zucchini, cauliflower, and carrots, and raspberry fudge squares for dessert.
-Juices & Smoothies: Kristina is well-known for her raw juices and smoothies, including a pumpkin spice banana latte smoothie, a “badass juice recipe”, a craving buster smoothie, and FullyRaw pina kale-ada smoothies.
The creatively-named smoothies use nothing but raw ingredients, including a healthy assortment of fruits and vegetables. Kristina uses a Vitamix blender to make these smoothies.
-Salads and Gazpachos: Highlights of this section include Kristina’s FullyRaw pizzas (yes, it’s possible) along with raw vegan fettucine alfredo and a Texas-sized taco salad.
-Low Fat Desserts: Low fat, raw food-style desserts include a triple layer cherry raspberry love cake, chocolate almond-butter filled cupcakes, and a lavender cheesecake.
All of the recipes are available for free online. Like most raw food recipes, they’re pretty straightforward: you just combine all of the ingredients together into a bowl.
Obviously, there’s no need to cook or bake anything! You really only need a salad bowl, a blender, and a juice container.
The FullyRaw Diet Book
Kristina recently went on a book tour to promote her book, The FullyRaw Diet: 21 Days to Better Health, with Meal and Exercise Plans, Tips, and 75 Recipes (that’s the full title).
The book is available from Amazon, where it’s currently the #1 Best Seller in the Raw Cooking category. It’s priced at $15.23 for the paperback version and $11.42 for the Kindle version.
It’s listed as “the must-have book for FullyRaw fans or anyone who wants to explore a raw-foods vegan diet to lose weight, gain energy, and improve overall health and wellness.”
The book specifically describes a 21 day plan where you can switch to clean, plant-based food sources like vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. The book includes enough recipes and tips to get you through the full 21 day challenge.
It was launched in January 2016 and currently has a near-perfect rating of 4.9 stars out of 5 on Amazon.
Kristina has become well-known for her FullyRaw videos, which are available online through her FullyRawKristina YouTube channel. That channel currently has over 784,000 subscribers and a total of 64 million channel views.
Popular videos include a video where Kristina explains how her eyes changed color after adopting the FullyRaw diet, how to get a flat stomach, and how to make an anti-cancer green juice.
Can a FullyRaw, Fully Vegan Diet Really Make You Healthier?
Ultimately, Kristina is a raw food enthusiast who is clearly passionate about the raw food movement.
She’s also one of the few people (if not the only person) who has been eating nothing but 100% vegan food for the past 11 years and counting – so she clearly backs up her advice by actually practicing it herself.
If you’re interested in the health benefits of raw food and the raw food diet, then Kristina’s website and books at FullyRaw.com are a great place to discover healthy, delicious, and interesting recipes you can implement today.
