ADVANTAGES OF EATING ORGANIC RAW FOOD
Eating organic raw food is as old as the human race. Long before cooking food was even considered, man ate the food God provided in its natural state. Genesis 1:29 states: “Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” Originally, man was given vegetables and fruit. These were the foods specifically designed for the human body. No doubt, these fruits and vegetables would have been picked ripe and eaten immediately. Fresh food eaten immediately after picking contains all the nutrients and live enzymes that are lost by canning, cooking, freezing and preserving. Long ago man learned that cooking some foods, especially meats, extended the time in which it was safe to eat it without becoming sick. This became the first step to processing and preserving foods.
As the population of the world grew, providing food to the masses living in the city became a problem to be resolved. The development of freezers and chemical preservatives extended the shelf life of many foods. Super markets came into being and a revolution in eating habits took place. Unfortunately, along with the change in food choices also started the deterioration in health and the beginning of chemically preserved foods, pharmaceuticals and western medicine.
The human race learned long ago that cooking meat before eating helped keep them from getting sick. Since then, the practice of cooking has expanded to include all types of foods and is now considered an art. Very few Americans eat meals which include raw elements, except for the leafy green salad, and it is usually made of iceberg lettuce. In a country where ketchup is considered a vegetable in school lunches, it is time for another revolution in eating habits.
Eating organic raw food brings Nature’s intentions into focus. Eating raw refers to fruit, nuts, and vegetables, in their natural state, direct from tree, bush or vine.
It isn’t easy to simply abandon years of tradition and revert back to 100% raw food. Margaret Mead once said, “It is easier to change a man’s religion than to change his diet.” Those looking for better heath can begin by incorporating more organic raw foods into their daily lifestyle. Following are several advantages to eating organic raw food.
There are many dehydrators on the market which can enhance your raw food lifestyle. Over the years we have had different types of dehydrators, but the one I like the best is the Excalibur. They have several models, I personally own the 9 tray model. With the Excalibur dehydrator, there is more versitility since you can dehyrate larger amounts - the trays are rectangle instead of round - and if you have thicker items you can use every other slot.
