Back to Basics: A Crash Course on Raw Food
If there are days you feel bloated and lethargic, sometimes it pays to go au naturale. The idea of eating raw food may seem challenging at first, but once you get used to it, your body will reap the health benefits from it.
One reason why eating raw food is a good idea is because a lot of us purchase processed foods that are loaded with carbohydrates like grains, sugar, and fructose. Some may taste delicious, but they contain large amounts of unhealthy fats that can lead to obesity and various illnesses.
Furthermore, once certain food items and produce are exposed to high temperatures, it may lead to the destruction of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are present in the food’s natural state, so the finished product tends to lack the healthy benefits that you need.
Raw foods also contain biophotons, which are sources of light energy that your body needs for important processes. High levels of light energy potentially lead to increased vitality and instances of energy transfer to the consumer.
Take note though, that just because raw food is extremely helpful for your body, especially if you have health and fitness goals in mind, doesn’t mean you should completely forego cooked food. Personally, I make sure that 85 percent of my diet is composed of raw food, or at least 50 percent, especially when I am travelling.
Don’t be intimidated by these recipes, because I have made sure that these are appetizing and safe for everyone, especially those who have not tried raw food.
