Help for Digestive Problems, Diabetes, Nutrient Deficiency, Aging & Weight Gain
Have you ever mentioned “Raw Foods Diet” to anyone? If you have, you probably saw them turn up their nose and heard them say. “I can’t eat that way.” Well, it isn’t what you think!
A raw food diet isn’t limited to living on salads and smoothies. Some of the types made are Italian, Middle Eastern, Asian, Latin American, all American, breakfasts, and, of course, desserts. They are not only delicious and easy, but exotic and comforting. Aromatic herbs, warming spices, and pungent flavors are used just like any other delicious food preparation.
Any appetite will be satisfied, especially when it comes to desserts. The raw desserts are great for those who love sweets, but want to avoid refined carbohydrates, sugars, dairy products, and unhealthy fats. They are divine, rich, and sweet! Just sample a raw dessert and you will say that it has more flavor than baked desserts. It will be hard for you to believe that it didn’t come out of the oven…and your next word will be, “Wow!”
The raw food diet is based on the belief that the most healthful food for the body is uncooked. Although most food is eaten raw, heating food is acceptable as long as the temperature stays below 104 to 118 degrees.
Cooking food can diminish its nutritional value. For example, the cancer-fighting compounds in broccoli, sulforaphanes, are greatly reduced when it is cooked. Also, certain vitamins, such as vitamin C and folate, are destroyed by heat.
According to raw foodists, enzymes are the life force of a food that helps us digest food and absorb nutrients. If we over consume cooked food, our bodies are forced to work harder by producing more enzymes.
