Raw food is making a comeback with a more balanced approach to health and vitality - no diet fads or trends included! Follow our how-to guide.
Like any diet, eating 100% raw can be difficult to sustain in day to day life. Raw food enthusiasts and blending experts Raw Blend, recognises that a diet that wholly consists of raw food can be daunting. To lend a hand, they are educating Australian’s on how to incorporate more raw foods into their everyday life in a way that helps them achieve a more sustainable health approach.
Where to start
Raw Blend recommends focusing on eating more raw foods, rather than taking the all or nothing approach. Stock your fridge with fresh fruit and vegetables, start your morning with a smoothie or swap the bread for leafy greens!
Benefits of going raw
Not only can a diet that incorporates raw food dramatically increase your nutrient intake, help fight chronic disease and illness, and aid in digestion, a diet rich with raw foods can also help improve sleep, appearance of the skin and aid in weight loss.
The science behind it
Eating raw ensures the living enzymes in food remain intact and that your body can easily digest and assimilate every nutrient and deliver them to every cell in your body. What results is abundant energy whilst fighting disease, and even slows the aging process.
Raw food contains enzymes which aid digestion. When food is heated above 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit, these enzymes which regulate the body’s metabolic processes are thought to be destroyed making digestion more difficult.
