Those of you who have been on a raw food diet for a long time, know that it works, it’s not a fad and that people were designed to be on a raw food diet. Not only does a raw food diet give you an incredible abundance of energy but your body will thank you in the long run.
To those new to a raw foot diet, by raw we don’t mean raw fish, meat or milk. We’re talking about raw uncooked foods such as mangoes, watermelon, broccoli, spinach, sprouts…etcetera. There are more nutrients in non-cooked foods and your body has an easier time digesting it.
Sprouts are essential to a raw food diet as sprouts act as a concentrated source of the living enzymes and “life force” that is lost when foods are cooked or not picked fresh from your own garden. Their high enzyme content makes them much easier to digest than the seed or bean from which they came.
All nutrients necessary for life are contained in seeds—a food category that includes grain kernels, beans, legumes, and nuts. Because sprouts are so fresh, and do not sit for days or weeks in warehouses, we know that we are getting optimum nutrition.
If you’re confused on what to eat on a raw food diet, it’s easy to make food starting with sprouts. You can blend a good mix of sprouts, fruit, and nuts into a power smoothie. Or toss a quick salad with the same ingredients. We provided a raw food recipe below with spouts that you can simply make with ingredients in your kitchen. It’s nutritious, delicious and your body will thank you for it afterward.
