Raw foods provide many essential benefits for the body and mind. Packed full of nutrients in their natural state, raw foods can help you take control of how your body feels. Khepri Cafe wants to shed some light on the possible benefits to your overall health of eating more natural, uncooked foods - and you don’t have to restrict yourself to an exclusively raw diet to feel those benefits!
Most raw foods are low in fat, sodium, and calories. For people trying to lose weight, these options could increase the speed of weight loss. Eating foods that are low in sodium can significantly lower the risk of heart failure, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer.
When eating a lot of leafy green vegetables and fresh fruits, it is easier for our bodies to absorb the nutrients, which alkalize and cleanse the body. These key vitamins, fibers and minerals can help build up our immune system to fend off dangerous diseases and toxic chemicals. Most raw foods are packed with antioxidants that can balance our pH system and produce higher energy levels to carry us through our long days. We all know energy is vital, but we need to be fully aware of what we are putting into our systems to fuel our physical and mental states. It isn’t enough to just have energy - our minds and bodies need the right kind of energy.
With all the endless processed food options in our grocery stores disguised as GMO’s, it is more important than ever to be conscious of the food we ingest. That means shopping the perimeter of the store where the produce, deli and bakery usually are instead of going up and down the aisles. Our overall health can be improved if we focus on clean nutrition.
