MEDITERRANEAN GOES RAW

Reconnect with nature

Raw Diet

Raw food diet

                      Raw food diet is the diet of the future!

         It reconnects us to the umbilical cord of Mother Nature…

                       It is the natural way of nourishment.

                          It is health, it is love, it is care,

                        for ourselves and the planet Earth.

What is “raw food diet”?

    “Raw food diet” means to eat our food the way nature gave it to us, that is 
uncooked!
    This does not mean that our menu has to be monotonous. Not only 
because there is a huge variety of food in nature, but also because thanks to 
our raw food diet predecessors, we have in our hands an entire art of creating 
very sustaining and tempting gourmet dishes. This art is constantly 
developing and backs up raw food diet, making it attractive to a wide 
audience.
    If fruits, vegetables and nuts did not exist, then there would have been no 
life on the planet, no animals and no humans!

Which foods are raw and “living” foods

    Raw and “living” foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, cereals, 
sprouted grains.
etc.
etc.

What does “living food” mean?

    “Living food” is called this way, because it contains bio-energy and all its 
natural ingredients, such as in the case of fruits and vegetables. Grains can 
even grow and produce life. E.g. most nuts, when soaked for a few hours grow 
sprouts that can create a new plant. As a result, their alimentary value is 
maximized. The same thing happens with legumes (you might remember the 
lentils we grew at school).
    On the contrary, when cooked, all of the above foods can no longer do 
anything but rot. They can no longer give us all their nourishing 
ingredients, that could offer us energy and health.

Why is raw and living food healthier than cooked food?

    When food is cooked in temperatures higher than 118 degrees Fahrenheit, 
it loses its enzymes provided by nature to facilitate metabolism. It loses 50% 
of protein, minerals, vitamins and nutritious ingredients in general. As a 
result, we eat more, in order to take what is left of nutritious ingredients after 
cooking. This is a primary cause of obesity.
Contrary to that, there is not a single overweight raw foodist in the entire 
world.
    The lack of enzymes in food is also responsible for feeling overblown, 
heavy and sleepy after a (supposedly) full meal. The organism expends all its 
energy to metabolize foods that contain no enzymes.
    On the contrary, raw foodists present no such symptoms. After a full meal, 
they feel light and full of energy!

Why raw food diet?

    Raw food diet turns back the clock of aging, both spiritually and 
physically, in a natural way!
    Without any exception, all raw foodists in the world report in their 
writings the same positive results, such as:
-loss of extra weight
-getting rid of gluttony
-adoption of a positive stance towards life and good mood
-getting rid of depression
-getting rid of headaches
-getting rid of problems before and during menstruation
-disappearance of cellulitis
-thickening of hair
-disappearance of white hairs
-getting rid of allergies
-getting rid of mycoses
-getting rid of arthritis
-getting rid of phobias
-getting rid of addictions (cigarettes, alcohol, coffee, etc)
-getting rid of chronic fatigue
-getting rid of stomach disorders
-getting rid of acne and skin problems
-getting rid of bad breath and bodily smell
And many many more.
    The list is long, because each raw foodist reports different problems they 
got rid of!
    Furthermore, there are many who report being self-healed from serious 
ailments like cancer. Of course, this being a very serious matter, and since 
we are not specialists, we cannot have an official stance on this particular 
subject. Yet, in any case these testimonies deserve serious examination.
    The following web sites are only a fraction of what can be found on the 
internet in relation to this subject. They contain a wealth of information that 
may even save lives.
    A question logically arises: Why are all these cases kept secret? Why are 
they not in the news all around the world? Why? Who gains from hiding the 
truth?
    Is it possible that a single way of life leads always to better 
health?                        
                                   
Does raw food diet heal?
                      No. Raw food diet does not heal.

What raw food diet does, is giving the organism the necessary background to 
heal itself!

Self-healing is a function of the human organism, the wisdom of nature!

Rawkathon–Eating Raw foods For Life

October 22, 2008

We are the ones who make the choice about the foods we put into our mouth and how we care for our health. This video shows us how we can take control of our health and energy by eating raw foods and making smoothies of fresh fruits and greens. The author discusses how her illnesses and that of her husband and son was turned around by eating fresh raw foods and juices. She shows us how to be in tune with our bodies and realize that we are what we eat. Many times we turn to fabricated nutrients which our bodies cannot recognize when natural nutrients are available in many of these raw foods. Water is also an important ingredient in our diets and many of us don’t pay attention to what kind of water we drink. High levels of nitrates are very unhealthy and can cause problems to our internal organs. Some waters have nitrate level higher than 5 when it should be less than 1. Since we are mainly made of water shouldn’t we pay attention to what kind of water we are drinking and drink more water?

HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS

September 12, 2008

HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS

Tired of buying school snacks that you dont know the ingredients of? How much sugar is really in those bars and muffins? What is monosodium glutamate? Are these snacks really as healthy as they claim to be? If these are the questions you ask yourself then here is a solution for you.

I love to take granola bars to school and I have fun deciding what to put into them every time! So here is my best recipe for you to try, and see what you can be creative with in adding to your own bars.

Take 3 cups of Quaker oats and 1/2 cup of raisens and set them aside.

In a sauce pan, bring to a slow boil:

 

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup (Karo syrup)(some people replace with honey)  and still constantly until well mixed and the sugar is desloved. remove from heat. Stir in:
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon liquid vanilla or equivillant of powder 
Pour this mix over the Oats and stir in until all oats are wet and let stand for 10 minutes.  Stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and press firmly into a lightly greased non stick pan, When cool cut into bars.  
You may substitute the chocolate chips with M&Ms, or other items like nuts, other dried fruits from the markets like dried cranberries, dried mango, pineapple, banana chips, SUNFLOWER seeds, flax seeds, etc. Get YOUR kids involved and see what their imagination comes up with.  :)))
