Jus’ Rawsome Food Courses

Raw foodists are the newest breed of health-conscious vegetarians, a breed rapidly growing in numbers. Raw foodists eat primarily uncooked plant foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. No meat, wheat, dairy, or rice.

This may sound limiting but there is a whole new freedom with this culinary art: especially knowing that uncooked plant foods are the most nutritious, healing foods of the planet. They contain a natural abundance of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes — most of which are destroyed, denatured, or rendered unusable to the body when heated.

Human beings began cooking over 125,000 years ago, but never to the extent that we do now.

Today, 90% of the foods in the grocery stores is cooked, pasteurized, preserved or irradiated. Obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease are reaching epidemic proportions worldwide and most doctors and health advocates cast the blame on our change in diet.

Never before have we eaten so many harmful foods on a regular basis. Commercial oils, cooked starches (i.e. potatoes, wheat and rice), and chemical preservatives are highly carcinogenic and found in almost everyone’s kitchen. When we cook carbohydrates the sugars become concentrated, and these can lead to mood swings, fatigue, diabetes, weight gain, and hypoglycemia. Become aware of what you put in your mouth and how you feel afterwards.

Organic (pesticide- and herbicide-free), ripe fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds are the most nutritious foods on the earth. We are the only mammal species that cooks our food and the only mammal species that suffers such widespread degenerative illnesses. Logically, a diet compromised of whole plant foods is the most natural and healthful choice you can make, but for many of us, this is a challenging change in lifestyle. Any one concerned with their health should include as many raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in their diet as possible.
