Over the past few years, one diet that’s become increasingly popular is the Raw Food Diet. While some will say that the raw diet or raw food diet as it’s alternately referred to is simply a passing fad, others will take offense to that statement. Raw foodies as they call themselves are very passionate about their meal plans. For them, eating raw food has more than simple health benefits or connotations as the raw food experience encapsulates more of a lifestyle choice as well as a philosophical belief system.
Raw foodies will often suggest that cooking food destroys many of the nutrients that are inherently present in food. As well, they’ll point to the potential dangers of cooked and processed food throwing around terms like ‘toxins’ which can damage your body.
Is this just another passing fad or is there some merit to the raw food diet?
