Health Matters: Revitalise with a raw food diet

My journey into raw food started almost eight years ago, here in Thailand. I was instantly “captured” and fascinated by the endless possibilities that a raw food diet can offer.

I was raised in a family where food was very important, and where there was a certain kind of knowledge: we take our protein from meat, we need to drink cow milk, and so on.

I have lived on both sides of the food spectrum. I got into a habit of eating comfort and junk food until I got sick and I discovered that “food” is actually what can make us more healthy, vibrant and energetic.

So I decided to become a vegetarian, then vegan and then finally, a “raw foodist”. A vegan raw foodist to be exact.

And this was the best choice I have ever made.

Purely unprocessed

So what is raw food? Raw food is anything that is prepared below 105 degrees. There is no boiling, no deep frying, no steaming, no oven baking.

The ingredients can be marinated, dehydrated and blended, so the uncooked foods retain their good nutrients, which ultimately gives us a vibrant, healthy and happy state of mind.

They are easy to digest so our bodies are less taxed and we can use this extra energy to perform to our full potential, work towards our goals and ambitions and manifest them into reality.

Raw food generally promotes well being and consciousness of the body, mind and spirit. It has a deep impact and effect on our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and sexual levels.

Real Results

What results can you expect from eating raw food? First of all, an increased amount of energy. This is what amazed me more than anything. After two days on raw food, I felt full of energy and vitality.

As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also feel your skin and hair blossom. You’ll find yourself sleeping better, having less flu and colds and you will lose your food cravings. Vegan raw food eliminates refined flours, sugars, as well as dairy products and milk from your diet, helping you to overcome “addictions” to certain types of food. You’ll also have fewer allergies, as well as many more fascinating facts you will discover.

Right Balance

How much raw food do we need to eat in order to get these results? Many people eat only around 50 per cent of raw foods and receive tremendous benefits. As long as you know which are the most important foods to eat and avoid, you will succeed.

The food we eat can literally shape our body and our thoughts. You will have a feeling of lightness, energy and joy of being able to eat whenever you want and what you want, taking care of yourself.
