You have the gourmet recipes which are often pretty complex or you have the very simple recipee like smoothies, superfood mixes and salads that take just 5 min to prepare.
I have little experience with gourmet raw recipes.
I make some fruit pies and when someone prepares a raw taco for instance for me, I am filled with delightful tastes! I love it.
Now, most people will need quicker recipes for every day life.
This is where the idea of simplifying recipes a lot comes in!!!
Both gourmet and simple are good!
For me they both work. It simply depends on how much time and energy you can invest in preparing your dishes.
They are both wins!!!
