In Food as Medicine, I wrote about what I have learned about how what we eat affects our health.
Research has shown that cooking foods above 116 degrees destroys as much as 80% of the nutrients in our food, as well as digestive enzymes which are so important to maintaining a healthy digestive tract. Here are some delicious raw food recipes that are not only delicious, but will benefit your health.
- Nori Rolls
- Raw Corn Chowder
- Raw Seed Cheese
