What is raw food?
Raw food (live food) means a diet of mostly uncooked whole plant foods – fruits (fresh or dried), vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, grains, sprouted legumes, seaweed, microalgae (like spirulina or chlorella), and fresh juices.
The exact heat limit varies a bit, but raw food is usually kept below 115 degrees F (the exact number varies between the “hot-to-the-touch” temp of 104 and about 120). Above this temperature, live enzymes and vital nutrients are destroyed.
True raw food nuts consume almost 100% raw food, while most raw-foodists eat somewhere between 75-80%. Every little bit helps though and you’ll be amazed at how great you’ll feel incorporating just a few raw food items into your week.
