Raw Energy: Raw food is good, inside and out
By Brenda Richter
If raw foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, are high-energy, high-vibrational, self-curing foods, why doesn’t everyone do it?
Oftentimes, people think this way of eating is boring, unimaginative food and sense a deprivation from their favorite foods –— none of which is true. In fact, it is quite the opposite.
It can definitely be challenging to make changes in your diet if you do not know what you are doing, you’re not interested in learning about it, or want nothing but hot foods all the time.
Microwaving, baking and boiling all change the molecular structure of food and greatly diminish the nutrient values of our food, which encourages lack of nutrition, over-consumption of foods, along with a number of other negative impacts.
Creating satisfying raw dishes not only can save you time in the kitchen, but your taste buds will sing and your body will dance with delight once you start to notice the difference in how wonderful you feel as your body transforms inside and out.
