Raw Page

This is another of the pages in my Being Well Basics Handbook
RAW
Raw is certainly gaining popularity with sales of Food Processors increasing, alongside all sorts of absolutely scrumptious dishes being prepared by more and more people.
A friend of mine is a meat inspector and was blown away when he found the choices at a Raw and Whole Food function were tastier and as filling as the meat he usually consumes.
I personally don’t often go down the Raw Chef track and simply make lots of Yummy Salads with healthy dressings. They can be wrapped in Pita or Turkish bread, rolls, etc but preferably not as most bread is highly processed. If you would like to learn how to prepare dishes that are Raw there is plenty of assistance available by some passionate people, just Google Raw Food Recipes.
Raw food assists Alkalinity balance, adds to our water and oxygen intake and is recorded as aiding in the healing of cancer and other disorders, along with increased immunity that enhances preventative Being Well conditions.
If you are eating only raw Vegetables and Fruit, your sugar and other cravings will in fact reduce or cease. Fruit is recorded as having enzymes to aide digestion and packs a punch of wellness with minerals, fibre, vitamins and water, along with great taste and sweetness.
As noted earlier, is more beneficial to eat fruit for breakfast or otherwise 15 minutes before a meal as it is digested quite quickly. This then aides digestion and prevents any fermentation of the fruit, caused by any other foods breaking down that have been consumed just prior.
Whatever weather or season, it is fine to consume Raw and I have found eating Raw in winter helps strengthen me against the winter blues and flu’s, while it is still enjoyable.
Raw is helpful in regards to increasing our energy while reducing the energy drain of resources that cooking entails. According to the experts, there is protein building amino-acids in all fruit and vegetables.
Wanting increased energy and nutrient Flow? Go Raw for a day, a week, or a lifetime. Start with baby steps, try fruit and organic yoghurt for breakfast (coconut yoghurt is yummy), replace mid-afternoon coffee with a juice (cold pressed preferably) and simply add more fruit for snacks and salads/raw vegetables to main meal plates. Grated zucchini, carrot, onion, beetroot, yellow sweet potato and butternut pumpkin are great raw additions. Grated ginger and sauces can spice these up or a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
80/20 of Raw/Cooked is a good percentage balance. Remember when eating Raw to consider a small intake of Good oils, some suggestions being Coconut Oil, Virgin Olive Oil, Sesame Oil, plus a little quality salt such as Himalayan or Deep Sea each day aids calcium uptake, a pinch added to water bottle is ideal.
Jump into the Raw Revolution and let your vitality FLOW.
