Raw Food 101
What is Living and Raw Food?
Plant-based foods in their original, un-heated state are considered raw & alive. Raw foods may include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, grains and legumes in sprout form, seaweeds, micro-algae, and fresh juices. These live foods contain a wide range of vital life force nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen) and live enzymes. Their nutritional properties are essential to the proper maintenance of human bodily functions.
Why Go Raw?
Raw foods are easy to digest, and they provide the maximum amount of energy with minimal bodily effort. Studies have shown that living foods have healing powers that can alleviate many illnesses from low energy, allergies, digestive disorders, weak immune system, high cholesterol, candida, to obesity & weight problems, etc… Research and real life experiences have also shown that a person can prevent a body's healthy cells from turning into malignant cancerous cells by consuming a diet consisting of mostly raw & whole foods.
What's Wrong With Cooked Foods?
Heat changes the chemical makeup of food. Foods that have been heated have lost all of their life force, and their beneficial enzymes are destroyed. The digestive system has to work harder and longer to process cooked foods to get nutrition & energy from it. Once cooked, a food can lose up to 85 percent of its nutritional value. Since we are essentially what we eat, consuming the dead energy of dead foods make our bodies feel heavy and stagnant, and contribute to increased illnesses.
