What Is Raw?
 
Raw food is food that has not been heated above 118°F or denatured by chemicals, pasteurization, or irradiation. By keeping food as close to its natural state as possible, we preserve the nutritional content by up to 70%–90%. Vitamin C and B vitamins are especially sensitive to heat degradation, along with the enzymes that help our food digest more efficiently. Raw preparations like blending and food processing keep the nutrients intact and allows us to create wonderfully tasty raw dishes.  
 
The major raw food groups are fruits, leafy greens, vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds, and sea vegetables. The early pioneers of the raw food health movement were vegans and did not include animal products, but today some raw foodists include raw dairy, eggs, meat, and fish. I find a plant based diet is more cleansing and alkalizing, especially if you are switching from a Standard American Diet (SAD), so I’ve only included vegan recipes in this book. If you choose to eat raw animal products, make sure you get them from a clean and humane source.
