      Is Raw the Real Deal?

      by Derek Shaw

      Raw food provided nutrition for plants and animals millenia before
      humankind discovered fire. Many believe that early man was vegetarian
      while others contend that our primitive ancestors were hunters who
      ate raw meat. Most historians, however, will agree on the fact that
      the raw food diet is hardly a new trend. Some people even believe
      that it holds the answer to disease and addiction.

      The raw food diet is primarily based on unprocessed, uncooked plants
      (preferably organic whole foods) like fruits and vegetables, sprouts,
      seeds, nuts, grains, beans and seaweed. The occasional unpasteurized
      goat cheese, uncooked egg or raw fish are generally deemed acceptable
      although most raw-foodists abstain from eating meat and dairy
      products. Eating raw doesn’t necessarily mean the food must be cold.
      In fact, anything you eat can be warmed up so long as it doesn’t
      exceed 104 degrees. Microwaves are off-limits, but you can heat food
      by using a dehydrator or even the warming plate of a coffee maker.
      There are many ways of making food palatable without heating. Soaking
      nuts can soften or extract the shells without steam. Sprouting seeds,
      beans and grains substitutes the need for cooking.
