Eating natural foods, primarily fresh fruits and vegetables, and following a natural foods diet at least 50% of the time, is a simple yet powerful eating lifestyle that all natural health practitioners advise. This means that whether you follow a vegetarian diet, a Paleo diet, a macrobiotic diet, Zone diet, low-carb, low-fat, or anything in-between diet, 50% of your daily intake should be from raw natural foods, especially fresh, raw vegetables. Why is that?
Because eating raw fruits and vegetables supplies your body with vital and very necessary enzymes, that are responsible for not just the digestion of the foods you eat, but also the proper assimilation of nutrients. A natural foods diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables floods your body with vitamins, minerals and amino acids that cooked foods are devoid of. Unlike raw all natural foods, cooking actually destroys both natural enzymes found in food, as well as many of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids. This is because enzymes and nutrients are heat-sensitive.
While many people fear the complexity or limitation of eating all natural raw fruit and vegetable foods, most would be surprised to learn just how easy it is to follow a natural foods diet, and get your minimum 50% raw food quota in daily. And, we're not talking about just eating some fruits or vegetables 'as-is'. We're talking about delicious raw food appetizers, side dishes, entrees, desserts and more.
