It's RAW-dacious!

Raw food eaters are particular about what they eat. Like other health-conscious people, they want to know what goes into their food. They won't skimp on raw nutrition, which is probably why raw food eaters typically have higher blood levels of key nutrients.

Why raw? For starters, raw foods' vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fiber, protein, and healthy fats are retained because they're not heated above a certain temperature. For example, most raw foods contain the very enzymes needed for digestion and nutrient absorption, but food enzymes are destroyed when heated above 112 to 118º Fahrenheit. Without those enzymes, our digestive systems work harder, while the pancreas, other organs, the immune system, cells, and tissues feel the strain, too.

Additionally, the body sees raw foods as "friendly" because cooked food can cause white blood cells to increase in the blood, mimicking an infection or toxin-fighting response—a reaction that doesn't occur with raw foods.

Raw food eaters are also less likely to eat meals made outside of the home. They'll often pack their own meals and pass on the pre-packaged or fast foods that typically dominate an on-the-go lifestyle.

Additionally, many raw food eaters choose organic because it doesn't do any good to eat raw food for the nutrient content if the food has been raised with chemicals.

If chosen wisely, a quality on-the-go raw meal delivers a superfood-packed 34 grams of protein, 9 to 15 grams of fiber, and a healthy 2.5 grams of fat. Additionally, it serves up 20 vitamins and minerals, providing at least 100 percent of the Daily Value of 16 key nutrients—while being free of gluten, dairy, lactose, fillers, synthetic nutrients, artificial flavors and sweeteners, and preservatives.
