Why Eat Raw & Vegan Foods?
Wellness is a conscious choice to continually improve our overall quality of life and health. If you are reading this, you are considering or thinking about moving toward a raw vegan food lifestyle. This is also a choice. It is a step-by-step process. When one thinks of eating raw and living food, most people think “I cannot possibly eat all vegan” – it is not about becoming raw in 30 days, or becoming raw in six months, or even becoming raw in one year. The journey to living a life of vibrant health is different for each individual. Living a life of vibrant health can be achieved, if this is your choice. If you begin slowly introducing raw and vegan foods in your day-to-day diet, you will begin to see and feel the difference. You do not have to be 100% raw to experience vibrant health!
There are many, many reasons for beginning a raw and vegan lifestyle.
- Quality of life
- Enzyme Nutrition
- Peace of mind
- Higher consciousness
- Feeling vibrantly healthy
- Endless energy
- Helping maintain the environment
- Anti-aging and rejuvenation
Raw and vegan foods support a slow, constant cellular cleanse. This is very important for detoxification at a cellular level. Physical toxicity is one of the major reasons for disease and accelerated aging. Toxicity leads to nutritional deficiency, stress, and a weak immune system.
So, choosing to consider stepping on the raw and vegan path and making the journey to create a life filled with love, peace, joy, endless energy, higher consciousness and more, will be one of the most important, life changing, and profound things you can do for yourself.
Dr. Ann Wigmore’s Living Foods Family Journal was the first live food newsletter in the world three decades ago. It was filled with the latest news, recipes, current events and newsworthy articles. Its’ purpose was to keep people in touch with one another so they would all continue to work as a raw foods team to help make necessary changes in society through total health and well-being by being examples to the world. Dr. Ann said, “We need to work as a family for healthy generations through genuine and sincere interest and a strong commitment to the raw foods lifestyle.”
The reality is that we can all live a peaceful, happy, conscious life through the raw and vegan food lifestyle. It is a natural and rejuvenating way of life.
