Raw foods Myth Busted-Part 1
A while back I wrote an article titled “Living Foodism” on the history and benefits of Raw Foods. To recap Living or Raw foodism refers to any diet of primarily unheated food, or food cooked at less than 40°C (104°F) to 46°C (115 °F). Raw foodists can be divided between those that advocate raw veganism or vegetarianism, and those that advocate a raw omnivorous diet. But there are lots of myths that make it difficult for people to transition completely or even partially to a Raw Food Diet. Here I talk about the top four myths and will continue the rest in my next series.
A raw food diet consists of much more than fruits and vegetables. Seeds, nuts, nut milks, sprouted grains, seaweeds and juices are all included on a raw diet. Fermented foods such as kimchee, miso, raw soy sauce, raw nut butters and cold pressed raw oils are also a part of raw food diets. Many foods like pasta, pizza, cakes and cookies that we enjoy eating are also consumed in raw food diet , but are prepared using healthy ingredients and without damaging the natural health benefits of the food.
