Fad diets come and go, but eating raw, living foods is not a fad ---- it has been around for thousands of years.  The vast majority of the time people have walked this planet we ate only raw, living foods.

There are so many benefits to eating living foods. Here are a few to consider.

  1. The dishes prepared with raw foods recipes are absolutely delicious.  The vibrant flavor is inherent to the foods themselves.
  2. Every major health organization in this country recommends that we eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.  On the raw foods diet, five servings is generally just a baseline – you find yourself eating much more.
  3. Raw foods have more nutrients and fibers than cooked foods do.  Enzymes in raw foods are active, not having been deactivated through the application of heat.  No bottled supplement or prepackaged food can compare with the life force of fresh, raw food.
  4. Raw foods are digested easily and quickly as compared to cooked foods, which can take 3 to 4 times longer to digest.  Your body’s vitality won't be sapped from breaking down hard-to-digest foods.
  5. Eating a raw, living foods diet strengthens the immune system and helps to improve your health from a variety of illnesses.  The aging process slows.  Eyes become brighter.  Skin and muscle tone improve.  Memory and concentration can become sharper.  You’ll feel better, have more energy, and need less sleep.
  6. Normalize your weight without restricting food intake.  Those extra pounds you have been trying to lose will melt away, without your having to go hungry, and your body will maintain its optimal weight for as long as you stay raw.
