Start 2013 with a Rawkin Rawluck!
For those who are raw vegan, or for those who wish to learn more about the raw lifestyle, come join us for a rawluck and taste live and delicious food!
What is raw food?
Raw food is nature’s food – food that grows on trees, vines, or in the ground and is uncooked, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted beans and grains. Raw food is free of animal products, organic, easy to digest, rich in enzymes, and highly nutritious. All of these delicious, natural foods are consumed whole, chopped, blended, shredded, diced and juiced to make very tasty, and even gourmet, raw food meals.
Why eat raw food?
Whole, ripe, raw, organic foods in their natural state keep us healthy, vibrant and disease-free. Why? Live food contains live enzymes, which are needed to assist the body’s digestive enzymes in breaking down food into digestive proteins. Since raw foods are not heated above[masked] degrees, enzymes are not destroyed in the cooking process and are not toxic to the body. These foods retain an enormously higher nutrient value than cooked foods. When food is heated over[masked] degrees, enzymes are destroyed; thus, nutrients are not provided to the body.
Please bring a vegan raw food dish of your choice (not heated above[masked] degrees) with your recipe to share. No animal products, fish, poultry, milk, eggs, honey, or cooked food and organic ingredients, if possible, please.
