Think raw food is just salads?? Think again 😉
I would like to point out though, that I don’t necessarily think that going 100% raw is the best thing for everyone since we are all totally different. I’m mainly trying to get people to realise the benefits of incorporating at least 50% raw food into their diets, if you feel better with more, then great, but if you don’t, I wouldn’t want you to force it upon yourself just because it works for others.
What are the BENEFITS of raw food:
❂ BEAUTY – your skin will look younger and tighter and your hair will have a naturally beautiful glow to it.
❂ GREAT STOOL – one of the first things you’ll notice after going raw (even after 1 day), is an improvement to your digestion. You’ll forget the words: constipation, gas and hemorrhoids. Vegetarians hardly get such things, let alone raw vegans!
❂ WEIGHT LOSS – you will start to naturally lose weight, it will be a healthy loss and will stabilise at the ideal weight for you. Death to “lose-10kg-in-a-week” diets!
❂ BETTER SLEEP – you will have more energy and will sleep better. I’ve noticed that I get up an hour earlier without an alarm and no longer have the usual morning tiredness.
❂ NO MORNING STARVATION – do you ever wake up absolutely starving and rush straight to the kitchen? I used to have that before I went raw, now I can easily hold off for a few hours in the morning before I get hungry.
❂ IMMUNITY – because you will be giving your body more of what it needs, all those lovely vitamins and minerals, it will respond by strengthening its immune system. This winter, everyone around me was sneezing and I wasn’t affected at all until I decided to experiment and eat pasta – immediately my nose was blocked. I don’t need any more proof that raw food was keeping me healthy. A lot of people also use raw food to get rid of some diseases like diabetes and candida once and for all!
❂ HIGHER VIBRATIONS – from a spiritual point of view, you will be clearing out your body and raising your vibrations. You may start to experience life a little differently, like become more irritated at things that no longer serve your highest good (e.g. smokers, newspapers). You may also notice a mood uplift, which you will spread around!
