VLiving Food THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RAW FOOD AND LIVING FOOD Raw food is food provided by nature, organically grown in its' original uncooked state. It consists primarily of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains. However, raw foods such as hard root vegetables, tough fibrous vegetables and un-sprouted nuts, seeds and grains are indigestible. Living Foods incorporates these foods through special preparations such as soaking, sprouting, fermentation, blending, and marinating for easy digestion. Living foods consist of super nutritious young organic greens, power packed sprouted seeds, grains and nuts, fabulous fermented preparations and exciting dehydrated foods. In addition, fresh wheat and barley grass juices add an unparalleled level of nutritional healing, vitality and health. All of these foods are prepared without cooking. Temperatures greater than 118 degrees F destroy the enzyme life force. At Raw Soul, we use no meat, dairy, animal products, refined or packaged foods. These foods are acid-forming, and cause acid wastes to build up in the body. Living foods have been developed so that even the most severe digestive problems can be overcome through easy-to-digest high energy nourishment. Food prepared in easy-to-digest form allows the cells to absorb fully the life-force energy produced by enzymes. Statistics show that millions of people suffer from chronic constipation. Most people accept it as normal. But it is not! When you do not eliminate properly, the body becomes toxic, creating an over-acidification of the body. The New Biology™, most simply stated, is that the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all disease. However, when the body is in a healthy alkaline balance, provided by living food, germs are unable to get a foothold. Eating a healthy diet that includes a good portion of live food is a way of taking total responsibility for your health. It is a total approach to life. It provides the body with the life-giving, easy-to-digest nourishment which is needed to strengthen the immune system. This is the living food which is used for rebuilding health, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
