Benefits of eating raw food.


Why Raw food ?


The reason why raw food is so beneficial to our total well-being in today's world is the fact that we are dealing with so many immune system issues. These issues affects both the young and the older persons health in our generation. We then have to make sure that 51 Percent of the meal that we have is raw, so that we do not overburden that already burden immune system. We are encouraged to eat organic food which is mainly fruit, vegetables, grains, raw unsalted nuts ,seeds and lean meat (chicken, turkey, fish) in moderation. As we are becoming more aware of the facts and realized that our food have more detrimental effects on our total wellness because most of them are already made and  fast food filled with additives such as MSG, preservatives and artificial coloring's. Even the ingredients of the food that we eat are made from "unhealthy" grown food full of hormones, herbicides and pesticides. More and more people have decided to choose food that is more natural, organic and pure to eat.



The reason why we need to introduce raw and organic food to our diet .

I believe a good percentage of nutrients are lost when we cook food or eat canned or pasteurized food. Plus our bodies have to work a lot harder to digest food when is cooked. This is because heating destroys it's nutrients and natural enzymes, which is bad because enzymes boost digestion and fight chronic disease  because we have limited number of our own enzymes and  natural depletion or reduction can cause diseases in our lives. 

Fruit and vegetables are the most nutrient dense food on the planet, and most of these foods are better eaten raw than cooked. Nutrient dense food has so many nutrients such as vitamins and mineral per calories on like calorie dense foods such as starchy food, food that are high in fat and refined sugar which provides many calories for energy that is not being utilized due to no physical activities in that individual. This will eventually add to the body weight and make it easy for the fat cells to store more fat which could lead to serious medical issues and complications. When we eat more raw food we are taking in more nutrients than we do when we eat cooked food, there are some exceptions however cooked green vegetables tend to be more nutrient dense than raw because we can eat more of then easily than raw. That is the main reason why blending all your difficult and hard swallowing vegetables with some fruits on a daily basis is a good idea to get your nutrient and raw enzymes into your system.This will give your digestive system a break from overworking.

I eat my carbohydrate in the afternoon during the weekend or at lunch break in small portion size.

Eating more of what the earth produce is the best healthiest options ever. When you do, You have to know your portion because small is plenty. Below is 3 scoops of pounded yam cos weekend afternoons are for African superfood followed by a five kilometres run to utilised the calories.  If you love pounded yam or any swallow every now and again you have to move your body, that is the sacrifice. You can not do it without exercise.






























This lunch below is small but mighty.

Let your blender do the breaking down of your food and take the burden of your digestive system. This will improve your digestion which in turn make constipation and indigestion a thing of the past.
