The Benefits of Eating Raw Food

A raw food lifestyle means that you eat a high proportion of fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and sprouted grains and legumes (usually, you eat 75-100% raw and the rest cooked, especially during the winter).

Fruits and vegetables contain great amounts of  nourishment like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre and beneficial enzymes. Enzymes are precisely why raw food is so much gentler on our system than cooked food; without depleting the body’s natural store of enzymes, raw food comes equipped with its own digestive enzymes to help the body digest that much quicker and without overtaxing the system. 

The more enzymes our food contains, the greater the absorption of nutrients. And the purer the food is (organically grown), the more nutrients it contains. Those who transition from a more standard diet will quickly experience more energy, nicer skin, and a more youthful appearance. While eating a pure diet, denser in nutrition, with lots of life-force energy, everyone will thrive and bloom!

Fruits and vegetables also contain lots of water that purifies and alkalizes the body. 

In addition, they taste wonderful and are easy to prepare.

Some micro-nutrients, such as vitamins and phytonutrients, get lost when cooking 

at high temperatures. Enzymes are also sensitive to heat and are easily damaged. 

By eating vegetables raw, more of their valuable nutrients stay intact.
