The raw food diet is the practice of eating unprocessed, plant based foods that are either entirely uncooked or not heated above 40-49 °C. The benefit of a raw food eating plan is that you don’t lose any essential nutrients or natural enzymes during the cooking process. Embracing a raw food diet is believed to reduce the risk of disease and leave you with a healthy, cleansed and energized body.
