People have been eating raw foods since, well, since the beginning of time. Back before obesity, cancer, and heart disease were claiming the lives of millions. From the structure of our jaw and teeth, saliva profile, the design of our digestive system, enzyme make up, and the pH of our stomach, it’s clear that humans were designed to eat raw plant foods from the get go.
What Is It:
Briefly, a raw foods diet is a style of eating where the majority of your dietary intake is uncooked fruits and vegetables, along with some nuts, seeds, and perhaps some sprouted grains. It is important that you also understand a food is considered raw if it is prepared below 108 degrees Fahrenheit, or it is completely uncooked.
