Eating raw foods is a way to give your body some of the nutrition it desperately needs. Many of us are at least slightly overweight, and even the morbidly obese are starving for essential proteins and amino acids.
All the processed, cooked foods we eat give us only a tiny proportion of what we need. Consequently, we eat and eat and yet we’re still not nourished. Psychologists try to tell us we’re eating to replace with an emptiness in our souls.
Incorrect! Our bodies our empty and trying to tell us so.Consuming raw foods is wonderful for us on numerous levels.
Eating raw foods is good for us on so many levels. It’s satisfying to eat them. They take more time to chew and swallow, so we don’t eat as fast. And we’re getting so much more in the way of nutrition by consuming fruits, vegetables, nuts and sprouts.
Which is the reason a juicer is an crucial addition to your kitchen once your start to be serious about raw foods.
A good juicer can process a complete apple – seeds, stems, peel, pulp and all – and turn all that into a healthy, nutritious juice.Purchasing apple juice is NOT the same thing!!! Don’t even look at apple juices or even ciders in the grocery store. Put that $2 or $3 aside and save up for a juicer.
Buy bags of apples, orange, bananas, carrots and make your own juices to get everything from the fruit that you’d get by eating it raw. Now you’re getting juice that’s as fresh as the fruit or vegetable you made it from.
You can customize your fruits and add non-typical ingredients like pumpkin to an orange juice. Now that’s a powerhouse of a juice!
