What is raw living food and why do we like it so much?
Raw and Living foods are uncooked, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains, sea vegetables, and fermented foods. These raw foods can be eaten whole or combined to make the healthiest, most delicious meals.
Sound boring? That’s what we thought when we first heard about raw-live foods. Then we tasted the food.and were VERY surprised!!! What we didn’t know was that you could make all kinds of foods that are easy to make and are delicious. Recipes include things such as “burgers, pasta, pizza, veggie stir fry, cookies, and ice cream.” You just make things with healthy ingredients instead of processed ones and don’t cook at high temperatures so you don’t lose nutrients, enzymes and the vital life force of the food.
Why do we like the food so much?
Dr. McReynolds: I know this may sound like a commercial, but here are the main reasons: The food tastes great and is EASY to prepare. (Unless “cooking” is preparation is quick and easy, I don’t do it.) Other good news: my health has improved. I had been a vegetarian for many years, but it wasn’t until I transitioned to the raw-vegan lifestyle, that I don’t have that constant “run down” feeling. The biggest surprise for me was that the headaches I was having several times per weeks resolved. Also, my mental clarity and Spiritual walking have improved. I’d like to say that these changes did not take place overnight. They took several months, so don’t expect a quick fix.
Dr. Weinthal: I’d like to give you a little background first. For me, food has always meant big family gatherings and cooking lots of “good food.” I don’t think I would have ever considered eating raw-live food if it hadn’t tasted so good. I still cook for large gatherings, but nowadays it is much more healthy. The food just tastes amazing and I feel great. A few years ago I needed 1-2 pots of coffee to make it through the day. I never thought I could have energy without drinking coffee. Would you believe that I don’t drink coffee anymore and have more energy that I could have ever imagined? Also, I used to have “digestion problems.” I’m very happy to say that these have also resolved. Like Dr. McReynolds, I have more mental clarity and better attunement.
