There are various misconceptions about raw food; some people believe raw food is bland, it does not provide the proper nutrients the body needs, it costs too much, and the prep time is not worth it. However, the truth is quite the contrary. Raw food can be just as tasty as anything cooked. By eating fresh, unprocessed foods, you are actually getting more of the nutrition and enzymes that are typically killed when cooking food as well as alkalizing your body at the same time. Integrating more fresh organic foods into your diet will only do good things for your health.
