Greetings and thanks for being interested in raw food. So why would you consider raw food? Well, possibly because the less processed the food, the more healthier and nutritious the food is for you. From a wholistic perspective, it is better to eat sattvic or more pure foods. There is a lot of concern that the western diet that has become increasingly processed largely destroys a lot of the food’s nutrition and life force. Additionally, a lot of food has become more unnatural with unhealthy substances added ( eg preservatives, additives, flavor enhancers). Due to stressful and busy lifestyles, take aways are becoming an increasing popular option. Most popular takeaway foods are extremely high in fats, sugars and sodium, and are low in healthy vitamins and minerals and fibre. Eating these unhealthy options regularly is harmful to your health, greatly increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and even cancer.etc). More raw food is a way to connect back to a more pure way of living with vital energized food that is a powerful source of nutrients and healing for our bodies in what is becoming a more complex and often more unhealthy world. Basically, raw food is full of enzymes and processed food often has very little enzymes. When we eat processed food, we use up our own enzymes to process this food whereas raw food is believed to give us more enzymes. One theory is that when begin to run out of enzymes, this leads to sickness and ill health and when we run out, we can die.
