There are many people who believe that once cooking is involved any foodstuff loses much of the goodness that are essential for the health and well being of human beings. Raw food diets have been championed of late and are starting to gain in popularity. Raw foods do indeed provide better and more qualitative nutrients but some may not realize that this can be achieved very easily with a little thought.
Naturally, everyone must by now has tried salads and coleslaw which obviously contained uncooked products. But for most people, this is probably the only time they have eaten uncooked food. They do not experiment with other versions of uncooked produce, or they are a little scared to try out anything else!
Many will think this is some kind of fad but this movement has been growing and mushrooming for some time. Many start the uncooked produce regimen when pushed into it by circumstance in places where only uncooked produce is provided. In the face of this dilemma they take some food to be polite but find that it is indeed delicious and very palatable.
Curiosity then tends to get them to branch out on their own.But what kinds of dishes make for good eating? For the uninitiated, it may not seem to be very varied. But for those who are truly interested, the versions are literally endless. How about a gazpacho soup which is a cold, tomato based soup from Spain? This dish is one of the easiest to start with and will set the newcomer on a very varied path bereft of cooking.
It is surprising to find burgers made from sprouting lentils and grated carrot, or sweet potatoes mixed with nuts and seeds to make crisp crackers. Even courgettes (zucchini) can be used to make a very tasty spaghetti style dish, all uncooked. Who would assume that this was possible? Young coconuts are also good for this type of dish as long as they are available to prepare.
Desserts are also another aspect of this style of eating and many will use fruits and nuts to produce something quite acceptable even to the beginner. So popular is this form of healthy eating becoming that it is anticipated that in the future, people will be able to pluck fruit and vegetables directly from plants growing along supermarket shelves.
This is probably the only way to make sure that goods are as fresh as possible. Fresh produce loses most of the beneficial vitamins the longer it is stored. In this way, the product can be consumed literally as soon as it reaches home.
For those who think that this will never catch on, there are many websites dedicated to the consumption of fresh and uncooked produce. Many extol the health aspects of eating this kind of produce and, considering all of the health problems that are here in the 21st century, this may be the way to provide a healthy and alternative choice for the family.
Most will try this, at least incorporating some uncooked produce in their daily intake, before emigrating fully to the completely uncooked route.Connor Sullivan asked a professional for advise on eating a diet of only raw food.
