What is raw food?

Not just carrot sticks, raw food means anything that hasn’t been heated during preparation.

Why is raw food better for you?

Naturally occurring foods (raw foods) are jam-packed full to enzymes, probiotics, vitamins and minerals. When you cook foods, particularly over 120 degrees, most enzymes are eradicated. This means by the time the food reaches your gut, it’s depleted of all the goodies which could help your gut with its digestive process. 

When you eat raw food though, the enzymes in your food work with your digestive enzymes to help your stomach break down what you eat. This relieves the stress and strain on the digestive system, helping your food be broken down faster and more efficiently.
