Why Raw over Cooked
Cooking food kills the live enzymes which we need in order to digest it, forcing the pancreas to create its own enzymes AND digest your food. By eating raw food you put less burden on your digestive system, allowing your body to spend more energy on other essential functions.
'Without the burden of digesting cooked food, enzymes are free to roam around the body, repairing damaged cells, enhancing the immune system, and protecting the body from disease and toxicity' Clark, C. 2008
Break your habit and make sure you're including enough raw fruit and veg to give your system a break this week.
