Eating Raw Food Is Good For The Soul

Raw Extras

Several people in my family have been and are still eating a raw food diet.  My Grandmother recently shared with me that while she is experiencing the benefits of eating raw foods, she also finds that it satisfies a soul-yearning within her. What could a soul-yearning have to do with raw food?

Most of us have a strong desire to see the “good guys” win. Rarely will you see a more vivid analogy of good guys winning  than when you are comparing raw foods with cooked foods, and their affect on your health. Research has consistently shown that raw (uncooked) foods have up to hundreds of times more of the “good guys” than foods that have been cooked.

These “good guys” are the LIVING components found in raw food such as enzymes, probiotics, and many other vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Many of these are destroyed when they are cooked. When you cook foods, add chemical preservatives, genetically modify them, and refine/process them to death, they become very much the villain.


The Creator blessed us with marvelous bodies, and then He gave us perfect foods that were specifically designed to meet our needs for health and satisfaction. These foods are absolutely loaded with “good guys” to help us, IF we eat them the way nature provides them- RAW. Take a tomato for example, which alone contains over 1000 different kinds of nutrients that they know of. But once we heat (cook) these very same foods much over 100 degrees, a huge percentage of the “good guys” are either destroyed or left injured in some way. That leaves us vulnerable to yet another group of bad guys such as bad bacteria, virus’s, germs, etc. due to a compromised immune system.

Looking at realities such as these is causing a rising number of people to begin adding more raw foods recipes to their diet. Countless individuals and families are experiencing spectacular results in all areas of their health by increasing their raw food intake!  Many are even recovering from illnesses in which all other treatments have failed. Raw dog food and raw cat food is also restoring health  for many of our companions animals. It is truly exciting!

Whatever the reasons you are considering raw food, helping the “good guys”  (so they can help you) is a very good reason for beginning a raw food shopping list! When it comes to fighting for your health you want to be on the right side of the battle and you will find it’s spiritually satisfying as well as health-building.
