Cooking destroys most of the enzymes, and decreases availability of up to 50% of the proteins, vitamins and minerals contained in foods, depending on the cooking method.. The body is then forced to spend energy to manufacture its own enzymes for digestion instead of other vital functions such as immunity and organ repair.
Eating even a proportion of our food in its natural state can make a significant difference in our lives.
On a physical and psychological level, it can help normalize your weight, increase energy and the healing capacities of the body, changing forever your relationship with food, weight loss and cravings.
On a spiritual level, unprocessed living foods deepen our connection to Life, enhancing meditation,and flexibility. They enhance the flow of vital life-force energy.
If you think raw foods are essentially a variety of mixed salads, think again… Even without special equipment, living foods offer a great variety. From entrees to desserts, from soups to crackers, they can provide all the nutrients needed by the body-mind. They are easy and fun to prepare and can be customized for your own constitution and metabolism, optimizing weight, strength and level of energy.
Increasing the proportion of raw living foods in our diet is part of a life giving and holistic process.
