Freshen Up - Go Raw


It's not just about carrots! We don't know whether eating raw food will make your skin glow, your energy levels rise or help you lose weight. We do know that when you cook certain vegetables and fruits their nutritional value decreases. We say cook, but raw foodies say 118oF or about 47oC is the temperature over which important vitamins and minerals, especially enzymes are lost or altered. We also know that cooking some veggies can increase the availability of vitamins. What's best is probably going to come down to a balanced diet with a range of foods. So this quest is about looking at your raw food range.

Does the lettuce in my kebab count?

Yes! If you eat it.

What about the apple in the apple pie?

If it was cooked or if you ate it cold but it was cooked before, then no it doesn't count.

Beware of

Salad that stayed on the plate

So just because your lasagne and chips came with salad if it stayed on the plate it doesn't count.
