Eating living, raw foods is way better for your body when compared to eating foods that have had the nutrients “cooked out” of them by boiling, baking or frying. Each time you put food into a stir fry, or boil it into a stew, you are robbing it of the many wonderful qualities it has. Less nutrients make it into your body. If you start eating for energy, you can get the most possible benefit out of each food you eat.
So, what are raw foods? They are foods that have never been heated to more than forty degrees Celsius. These foods tend to be extremely rich in energy, and are often plant-based foods. Fruits, vegetables and even grains, seeds, nuts, and beans can be raw foods as long as they are eaten without being cooked.
Stop boiling and roasting your foods. Instead, why not try juicing, grating, blending, or chopping these foods up to create delicious meals of living foods. They are much better for your health when the foods are still alive.
Your body more easily digests raw foods and can help detoxify your body. You will become healthier and free from harmful toxins that accumulate in your body when you eat unhealthy food. When you cook food, you destroy the enzymes which are wonderful for your digestion and your body as a whole.
Eating raw foods will give you a lot more energy than cooked foods do. This is because they are rich in vitamins and nutrients, and are more easily digested by the body. Therefore, you get a boost of energy that lasts all day.
Eating for energy by consuming more raw foods is a wonderful way to get the vitamins and nutrients from food into your body in the most effective way possible. Not only will you have more energy, but you will create a healthier and slimmer you.
