A raw food diet is not something new…
it’s a way of eating that has been around since the beginning of time and will always dominate the dietary habits found in nature. Yet, its powerful healing and body-transforming secrets have been withheld from us because of all the processed foods and marketing in front of us.
Eating a raw food diet is like eating pure energy… it is principle-centered and relies on the importance of following an alkaline, enzyme-rich, and predominantly plant-based diet. Although my diet is roughly 80% raw, I’m not here to preach to you to convert to becoming a raw foodist, but to encourage you to eat as healthy as possible. My major focus is consuming alkalizing and energizing my body with the healthiest foods possible, which happen to be raw foods. It’s a lifestyle adjustment that has changed my life and it can change yours too, when you are ready!
