Our culture has gotten very far away from eating food in its natural state. Between fast food, standard American diets heavy in meat, dairy, cheese, gluten, rancid oils and processed “healthy” frozen entrees cooked in the microwave, our bodies are in a constant state of confusion. What is this eating style doing to your longevity, vitality and health?
Our bodies were not designed to live on preservatives, additives and all those chemicals in modern food. We all know intuitively it’s healthy to eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. The raw food lifestyle simply suggests that these foods should be most of what we eat.
You don’t have to eat 100% raw or even be a vegetarian to get started.
