And God said, "I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food." Genesis 1:29
My interpretation: Eat fresh, ripe, organic raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. These foods and these foods alone were meant as fuel and nutrition for our bodies. In addition to fresh air, sunlight and water, they're all the body needs to thrive. Interfere with this process, and the body will go into survival mode. In this article, I will not focus on the survival mode
eating cooked foods entails. Instead, I'll focus on the benefits that accrue to us when eating the foods we were told to eat by God.
We've all heard about calories, protein, and fat. When we eat the way God instructed, we wouldn't care about any of them. If counting calories, burning fat, and eating high protein foods were so important, why are Americans engaging in these practices the most overweight, disease-ridden people in the world? Listening to God, and getting back to our true body design will keep us healthy.
The way to do this is with raw foods. What are the benefits of a raw food diet? Major benefits are preserving energy and keeping your vitality level as high as possible. Overcoming major and minor diseases are common benefits, and feeling like Superman/ Superwoman is often mentioned.
Healing with raw foods: If you feel sick, weak, lazy, tired, or have a disease, eating raw foods can help you begin to overcome all that. What caused these poor bodily conditions is having supplied the body with low quality food. That produced low quality blood, or poor quality blood leading to the problems mentioned above. Eating the highest quality food will keep your blood clean and reinstate your health. All these negative bodily actions are caused by a lack of oxygen, a result of eating food that allowed
the body very little oxygen. In other words, you are suffocating yourself to death when you eat foods lacking in oxygen. Raw foods contain an abundance of oxygen in mineral form. They are loaded with air for your suffocating body.
Thriving on raw foods: Your body takes much time and energy to digest non-raw foods. If you overwork a machine, it will get old fast and breakdown. A raw food diet is enzyme rich which preserves the body's energy. The more enzymes in the food, the less the body has to work to digest the food. The enzymes go right to work to assist the body in doing the job. What to do with all this energy? Thrive! That's what we'll do on a raw food diet.
Other amazing benefits of a raw food diet:
Cost efficiency: People often tell me it costs too much to eat healthfully, or it costs too much to eat a raw foods. I used to think so too at one point in my life, but now I just laugh at that since I found raw foods are the least expensive you could ever buy. They can even cost nothing and often do. What costs more, a banana or a candy bar? An apple, or a slice of apple
pie? Raw fruits and vegetables are the least expensive foods. Then, there are wild foods which can be found all over, and all wild foods are free to enjoy. They're the highest quality foods, the least expensive, and they're 100% raw.
Real fast food: Does it take longer to eat a banana, or a banana split? An orange, or a hamburger. When it comes to fast food, McDonald's and Burger King can't hold a candle to fruits and vegetables.
The biggest selection of foods to choose from: Did you know you could eat one new variety of fruit every day for the rest of your life and still not come close to eating all the varieties in the world? Most people in this country limit fruits to apples, bananas and oranges, but there are tons of other fruits sold in markets all over. Exotic fruits are everywhere these days. Enjoy a nice chocolate pudding fruit, or some jack fruit. Or how about a durian? Are you thinking you don't know about these fruits? Did you know that there are over 50 kinds of bananas, 50 kinds of apples out there? Try them all; then you'll realize there's so much to choose from.
Enhancing mind power: It's a known fact among raw fooders, eating raw foods helped them develop mental powers they never knew they had. It's a scientific fact: more oxygen to the brain will help improve mental capabilities, and we already spoke about how eating raw foods brings more oxygen into the body. Many people had some form of depression until they ate more raw foods; then, their depression lifted or subsided.
Connecting with God: This is the major benefit of a raw food diet. The more you eat foods God told you to eat, the better relationship you'll have with Him. It's simple. If your parents told you to do something when you were a little kid and you did it, you pleased them and had a good relationship. But if you said no to them, they wouldn't be happy with you. The more you
listened to them, the better they could guide your learning about life. God works the same way. Listen to God and you will have a great relationship with Him. And God said, "I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food." Genesis 1:29.
The more raw foods you eat, the more you'll experience all these wonderful benefits and so many more. You'll also start to enjoy a personal relationship with God that will enhance your whole life. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Give it a go and eat raw foods!
