Fruit & Vegetables

The benefits of eating fruit and vegetables in their natural state are plentiful since they have most of their nutrients intact. Nutritionally, the distribution is as follows:

*Fruits contain the most vitamins and vegetables contain the most minerals (although there is a mix of both in most.)

- Since raw food contains more nutrients (e.g. vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients etc.) than cooked food, you get more nutrients from a smaller amount of food.

- Fruits and vegetables also contain beneficial enzymes that help aid digestion.

- The high fibre content of raw food means that the food is transported faster throughout the digestive system:

  Good digestion gives us good health!

- The body is made up of almost 70% water. Fruits contain a similar amount of water content, which matches that balance in the body. It is because of this that fruit is so cleansing to the body.

- A diet rich in fruit and vegetables makes the body lighter and helps to facilitative a life that is, overall, more pleasurable and flowing.
