Raw Food and Healthy Living

The magic of raw and living food lies simply in its direct link to mother nature.

Back in the day, before processed foods and external toxins penetrated the earth, humans lived off food fresh from its life source. Imagine the life source as an umbilical cord, transferring all the necessary nutrients from mother to baby. Similarly, plants that are still connected to their branch or root, feed off nutrients from the soil and sun which provide the resources to grow, flourish and stay alive. These foods are living because they’re still growing. Like humans, after being born disconnected from the umbilical cord, plants stop receiving nutrients from their life source after being picked, and gradually begin to die: wilting, losing colour and shrivelling up. After about 48 hours, plants are no longer living. They are then considered raw foods, and continue to possess many vital nutrients as long as they’re fresh.

All living things go through the same stages, humans not exempt. Once we are born and disconnected from our mothers’ unconditional flow of nutrients, although much slower than plants, ageing is inevitable. However, eating right, we have the power to slow this process and retain vigour and vitality, almost as if it were an anti-aging formula. Funnily enough our fountain of youth has always been right before our eyes, but as humans, ever progressing and yearning for knowledge, we merely got distracted by our exciting discoveries along the way.

It may surprise you to know some foods we all love, including chocolate, which IS a plant, and in its raw form cacao is a superfood filled with magnesium, antioxidants, the “bliss chemical” (anandamide), aphrodisiac (phenylethylamine), digestive health, and deliciousness. There are many simple recipes (add link). Chocolate is believed to be an unhealthy food only because of what happens when its processed. Many foods when processed (i.e. cooked, microwaved, filled with additives like sugar, milk, preservatives) lose their vital nutrients.

Since we no longer have easy access to farms where we can pick fresh, living, organically grown vegetables, an alternative is necessary. This can be easily achieved in your kitchen sprouting your own seeds, nuts, or grains. Sprouts are richly flowing with nutrients because they are baby plants. Just like babies, sprouts require an abundance of nutrients to grow, thus providing us with incredible age reversing treasures.

Attend one of our Raw Living Workshops (link) to learn to sprout in your very own kitchen.

Eating raw and living foods prevents and heals diseases, reduces stress, keeps the mind sharp and focused, skin smooth and vibrant, hair thick and luscious, digestion impeccable, and the body active and pain free. You will even find your weight normalising. Tonya Zavasta (link), author of Your Right to Be Beautiful and Quantum Eating is a shining example of attaining vibrancy and beauty by maintaing a Raw and Living foods lifestyle. Despite undergoing numerous surgeries enabling her to walk normally, she has fully recovered. Even in her 50’s she radiates flawless skin, long dark hair, bright eyes and a fit figure. She has determinedly inspired women and men to rejuvenate their minds, bodies and souls. She wittily exclaims, “when a beautiful young girl turns your head – Wow! When a radiant, fifty years young woman turns back the clock – How?”

Nowadays we need much more than just food, water and shelter to survive. By introducing an abundance of raw and living foods into our lifestyle we can attain health, beauty, vitality and sharpness, creating a state of mind and body open to nourishing our souls to love our core self.
