why raw?

 

To eat raw food is to eat food that is alive/ living, fresh & unadulterated containing its original enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrient & its energy, its ‘life force’.

 

Food as Mother Nature intended.

why bring raw food into your life?

“Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy Food”

Hippocrates (c.460 B-C – c.370 B.C.)

There are a handful of nutrients that we need to consume to function optimally, to help us heal, to keep us healthy, to help keep us free from disease, unwelcome health issues and other ailments.  These nutrients play a critical part in the trillions of chemical reactions that take place in our bodies.  All we have to do is make sure these nutrients are included in our diets.  Our body will do the rest! That's magic and that's the magic of raw food because it contains these nutrients.  

A lot of cooked food, because it's heated to very high temperatures, is devoid of not only its life force or energy but also most of these vital nutrients.  Eating foods with these elements intact doesn't sound that important or that sexy but it really, really is.  Raw food is food that mother nature has provided for us and intended us to eat and at the very least should be included with most of our meals no matter what type of diet we are eating.  

Including raw food in our diet helps us to become healthier, more vibrant, optimistic, engaged, interested, passionate, energetic, slimmer, happier, calmer and more balanced individuals. Of course, it doesn't have all the answers but .... for me it acted like a gateway to them; the other areas in life I needed answers to, areas that needed attention, that needed overhauling.  

 

To gain the benefits of raw food, you need to eat it!  To believe it works you have to try it out and see for yourself.  If nothing else has worked for you or perhaps you have reached a health crisis then perhaps now is the time to try it. 

Is it possible to add years to your life and life to your years with this way of eating and living?  I believe, unquestionably, that it has this potential and I believe we should all have the opportunity for this and my mission is to be part of providing the inspiration for that.
