I’m doing a #30DaysRAWChallenge and so far I am loving it. 🙂  Why? Well, I believe I’ve needed to do something like this for a long time. I think it will help my digestion, move me to a stronger whole-food, plant-based lifestyle (I’m about 75-80%, consuming eggs, chicken, fish the other 20-25%). While there isn’t anything terribly wrong with my current diet, I know my body needs more wholesome, nutrient-packed raw whole foods, with all their living enzymes, for an extended period and that is what I am doing.  My goal after the 30 days is incorporate even more raw foods and get to 90-95% whole-food plant-based diet (if not 100% most of the time).

Raw foodies (the nickname for devoted to this diet) believe that heating food above 115 or 118 degrees Fahrenheit destroys critical enzymes that are there to aid digestion and absorption of food. They believe that foods cooked above this temperature lose a significant amount of their nutritional value and are harmful to the body, whereas uncooked foods provide living enzymes and the highest possible nutritional value. Followers believe that the raw food diet improves overall health and immunity, prevents degenerative disease, slows the effects of aging, boosts energy, and balances emotions. So why not Go Raw for 30 days and reap all these benefits.

Try these super yummy RAW TACOS from the RAWvolution 30 Days Raw program I’m doing and let me know what you think.
