Raw Food Diet…just another fad?

written by Head Health Nutter January 20, 2008

An introduction to a raw food lifestyle…mmmm…yummy.

According to this news report, cooked food destroys essential digestive enzymes.

So if these recipes are as tasty as they seem, and if it is true that cooked food results in nutrient loss (I’ve also heard that vitamins are lost during cooking), could you consider living the rest of your life without hot food?

This is a fad that has been around a long while, there is a great raw food restaurant in Toronto.

There is some wisdom to this for sure, but cooking properly also enhances some nutrients, and aids in digestion. so all things in moderation I say, and raw food is delicious and important.

Well, since in the post after this you mention that health and its definition are subjective, then I guess I can say that I can not live without hot food. Don’t get me wrong I love salads, fruits, nuts, and other classes of food that do not have to be cooked (oh don’t forget Sashimi), however there are times that hot food just can not be replaced. Seriously, how can you possibly live in Canada and not have the need to have a hot bowl of chilly in the February?
Anyway I think that eating healthy is important. But more important is thinking healthy.

p.s. Love your Blog!

I’m eating a side of deer right now and it has a lot of pink in it, raw-like. I just hit it with my car and it’s as fresh as could be. Had I had my Hibachi with me, I could have held an impromptu barbi-que for the passing motorists – signs and everything! “Free venison! All you can Eat! But, sigh, there is only me so one must improvise…..no nutrient loss here though, for sure!

I didn’t watch the video but I will right after I tear as strip of bark off this here tree. That’s pretty raw, isn’t it. If I cook ‘er up, that might equal bacon. All that chlorophyll…mmmmm, yum-yum. I’ll be absorbing the soul juice of this tree/plant and enriching my life force at that same time.

Like Jean Luck Picard from Star Trek: Next Generation says: Engage!

LOL! I guess raw food is a hit all around. 🙂

Good point, Denise, about the release of vitamins in certain heated foods.

I just read the other day that lycopene is an antioxidant that’s released in cooking tomatoes.

Af: I so hear you on that chili!

Mitch: lol…can I be Deanna Troy?!
