To live a healthy lifestyle, it is recommended that you partake in a balanced diet with a high quality daily exercise routine. Vegetarianism was the original ‘hype’ diet, but millennials are taking veganism or raw food diets into account and using these as means of living healthy lifestyles. The majority of the general population wonder why a person would choose to follow such a type of fitness and food regime. Why base your life around such a type of restriction or food deprivation? If Jared Leto and Alicia Silverstone are anything to go by, then this lifestyle may be worth considering.
The raw foods diet, also known as a veganism lifestyle, does not focus around raw foods entirely but only approximately 70% of the time. One does not eat raw meat, but rather uncooked fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, sprouts, or any food cooked over 112 degrees Fahrenheit. A raw food diet does not refer to veganism exclusively, but also non-veganism and this is the core of this article. In this article, we will discuss non-vegans who are unlike vegans in consuming raw meat, fish, and dairy products.
As an individual who consumes cooked foods, one may think that either of the above mentioned diets could be considered extreme. A standard American diet will consist of an amount of cooked animal products, dairy, meat, processed foods, artificial ingredients, and the majority of the population will consider this type of diet the norm. We need to question whether this artificial diet with its lack of green vegetables is the common style or if it should be the extreme option in reality?
Honestly, which is the extreme routine? Which diet is the healthier option? A healthy diet is one that provides the individual with a balanced lifestyle and, needless to say, that would be the one with the raw foods. The reason foods are not cooked over 112 degrees Fahrenheit is because heating meats will destroy the beneficial enzymes. Living enzymes within the foods ensures vitality in the foods; therefore, aiding the person’s digestion, immune system, storing energy, and reducing the person’s aging process.
Raw foods, also known as alkaline foods, are most beneficial when it comes to real energy. By maintaining the enzymes within the dinner food recipes, you will feed your cells with high quality nutrients; thereby, resulting in a feeling of lightness and surplus of energy. Of course, it is possible to obtain this surplus of energy from artificial coffee beans and stimulants but this energy is false and temporary.
By utilizing alkaline dinner food recipes with raw meat as meals, you can not only overcome physical signs associated with aging but also decrease mental fatigue. Knowing how to alkalize the body is a useful skill to maintain optimal health. People who convert to alkaline raw food diets claim to have reversed aging processes by making their skin younger and smoother; as well as, removing joint pains or aches. Memory is improved, emotional clarity is regained, and mood swings become a thing of the past. In fact, some people have lost weight by using raw food diets because food cravings become a thing of the past.
