Cooking destroys the nutritional value of perfectly-edible fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes. Raw food is pretty easy to prepare, because for it to qualify as “raw”, it must not have been cooked past 40C (104F).

P.S. Yogurt is NOT raw!

Share your ceviche, salad, cheese, kombucha, smoothie, or anything else raw for your chance to win a blender, mandoline and book set to help you prep and serve more raw foods.
