2. Provide an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, water and trace
elements.

3. Have a high water content - an excellent source of hydration for the body.

4. Are visually appetizing.

5. Their firm textures demand a good chew, so we eat them more slowly and feel full
afterwards.

6. Are quickly and easily processed and assimilated by the body - less work for the
digestive system.

7. Are safer - contain less undesirable man-made chemicals.

8. Are as nature intended (unlike processed, pre-packaged modern fast foods!)

9. Are pure energy - living food.

Consuming Cooked Foods

1. Heat destroys the vitalizing nutrients in colorful foods. So much so that
sometimes, you may as well be eating cardboard for all the good it does your body!

2. The effectiveness of fiber in cooked fresh foods is reduced - vegetables that are
floppy and overcooked pass through the body with a reduced 'cleansing' action.

3. If you cook vegetables, always steam them lightly and aim to retain their 'crunch'!

4. Cooked vegetables tend to turn out soft and therefore require less chewing, which
means they are usually eaten more quickly, so are less satisfying.

5. Heat also destroys the enzymes in fresh foods, which are essential for digestion.
This means the body has to tap into its own precious supply of enzymes to support
the digestive process.
