10 Benefits of Eating Raw Vegetables
Mankind learned a long time ago that cooking meat before consuming it protects them from parasites. Since then, this culinary practice has grown to include all types of foods and is now considered an art. Average food doesn't usually contain a lot of raw products, other than green leaf salad. Here we are going to look at 10 benefits of eating raw foods.
However, the benefits of eating raw foods reveal nature's intentions. When I say eat raw, I mean fruits, nuts, and vegetables, which most people enjoy in their simple simplicity straight from the tree, bush, or vine.
I realize that it is not easy to just let go of millennia-old traditions and go back to 100% raw food. Margaret Mead once said: “It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet. So here are the benefits of fresh, whole raw food foods that can make you find a better place for them in your diet. It's never all or nothing!
1 Raw food is of higher quality
Raw food is of higher quality, so eat less to meet your nutritional needs. The heat of cooking depletes vitamins, damages proteins, and fats, and destroys enzymes that aid digestion. As your raw food intake increases, you will feel fuller and have more energy in smaller meals because raw foods have the best balance of water, nutrients, and fiber to meet your body's needs.
2 Raw foods have more flavor than cooked foods
Raw foods have more flavor than cooked foods, so there is no need to add salt, sugar, spices, or other condiments that can irritate your digestive system or overstimulate your nervous system.
3 Raw foods require very little preparation
Raw foods require very little preparation, so you spend less time in the kitchen. Even a 5 or 6-year-old can prepare most foods for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It gives kids a sense of self-worth and independence, not to mention the rest of their mom or dad.
4 If you eat raw
If you eat raw you are unlikely to get burned unless you are in the middle of a forest fire or in the sun. Think about it! No burns to the tongue, palate, or fingers and even fewer household fires.
5 Tidying up after a raw meal is very easy
No boiled oils or crispy dirt. And the inedible parts go straight to the compost heap.
6 Raw foods can stop the progression of many chronic diseases
Raw foods can reverse or stop the progression of many chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Remember that cooking creates free radicals, which are the main cause of cancer. When you reduce the number of free radicals bombarding your cells, you lower your risk of cancer.
7 Eating raw vegetables can protect you
Eating raw vegetables can protect you from acute illnesses such as colds, flu, measles, etc. Raw food maintains a healthy body with better defenses to prevent the disease from entering.
8 You can stop Heartburn, gas, indigestion, and constipation
Heartburn, gas, indigestion, and constipation can be a thing of the past. As long as you combine raw foods correctly, you will soon reach a level where you no longer suffer from heartburn, gas, indigestion, or constipation.
9 Raw food is organic
With a raw food diet for mankind, the food industry would stop and turn to organic horticulture. This would save us enormous amounts of natural resources that are used to generate energy for these industries. Nuclear power would clearly be useless. And think of the number of trees and oil reserves that could be saved without the paper and plastic used to package our processed food. Also, if cooking were stopped, fewer pollutants would be released into the atmosphere and more oxygen would be produced in all-new orchards and gardens, which would help slow global warming.
10 Raw food saves money
Raw food saves money - on groceries, vitamins, pots and pans, household appliances, medical bills, medicines, and health insurance. So don't waste your food, yourself, or our planet by cooking what you eat. Whole, fresh and raw fruits, nuts, and vegetables are full of life and have the ability to transfer their life force directly to you.
