Raw food can cure chronic disease because they flood your body with enzymes, oxygen, and micronutrients. When we cook our food, we lose 30% of the nutrients and 100% of the enzymes. Eating raw vegetables, greens, nuts, seeds, sprouts and juices gives our body needed enzymes to absorb all that healthy food we are eating, and therefore reduces the cellular inflammation that causes disease. Eating raw heals at a deep cellular level.
We met and heard the stories of a number of people who have healed their illnesses (cancer, type 2 diabetes, heat disease, obesity...) through switching to a raw food diet. We drank green juices and wheat grass shots throughout the day. And we ate delicious, real, nutritious food.
In lieu of a recipe today, I will show you pictures of my growing wheatgrass, and of the sprouts which I prepared (it is so easy!)
Mung bean and lentil sprouts, ready to eat! They flood your body with protein and energy.
Sprouted wheatgrass, JUST starting to grow. It will be another week before I can juice them.
Perhaps next time I will tell you how to sprout....or maybe I will share a raw recipe or two. We'll just have to see. Until then, au revoir!
