Feel Good. Be Nourished.
What is Raw Food & Why?
Eating raw means eating uncooked, unprocessed, whole plant-based, ideally-organic foods. Those who follow the raw food regime, referred to as "raw foodists", consume a diet consisting of a minimum of 80% uncooked food.
Benefits of a Raw Food Diet
Enzymes are the life force of all foods and they are only found in raw foods, as enzymes are destroyed at temperatures over 118F / 48C. These vital enzymes have anti-inflammatory effects, support the immune system and allow us to completely digest our foods without having to fully rely on our own digestive enzymes, resulting in:
- Improved digestion
- Better nutrient absorption
- More energy
- Better skin
- Sustained weight loss
Get More Raw Into Your Diet
When transitioning to a raw food diet, it can be a bit of an adjustment in the beginning, in terms of new flavours, new food-shopping routines and new food preparation. Begin by incorporating just one raw meal into your day and build from there - a salad is an easy way to start.
For further assistance with incorporating raw foods -- for more energy, flavour, health -- into your life, Essential Balance can help guide you to ensure you reach your goals, including:
- Building a delicious and easy-to-make repertoire of raw food meals/recipes
- Creating raw food plans - full of nutrition, flavour, and convenience
- Buying the right kitchen equipment
- Hands-on raw food lessons
- Inspiring raw food recipes
What Does it Mean to be Vegan?
A vegan diet is one that consists of only plant-derived foods. Vegans do not consume any animals or animal products, so no poultry, meat, dairy, eggs, or honey.
Eating vegan means eating nutritious, natural foods found in any supermarket - fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and nuts/seeds. These make up the bulk of the vegan diet, typically designed for optimum health.
Nutritional deficiencies are a concern for everyone and raw foodists and vegans are not exempt from this reality. With guidance from Essential Balance, you can be assured of a sound nutritional plan which tastes great and provides the full complement of necessary nutrients.
