RAW FOOD IS FOR EVERYONE. IT IS UNIVERSALLY RECOMMENDED FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE CERTAIN QUANTITY OF FRESH RAW FOOD IN THEIR ANY PRESENT DIET STYLE.
Q1. WHAT IS RAW FOOD?
Raw food is a term given to humanly edible, digestible and absorbable plant based food, in it’s most natural, ripe state as created by Mother Nature.
RAW PLANT BASED FOOD CAN CONSIST OF:
|FRESH-RIPE (Whole Food*)||DRIED (these are not Whole Foods)|
Green Leafy Vegetables
|Dried Nuts (un-heated/which can be sprouted)
Seeds (un-heated/which can be sprouted)
Any foods dried in the sun called the sun-dried foods or those dehydrated below 47 degree C / 118 degree F are also considered raw (but they are not whole food)
Q2. WHAT ARE WHOLE RAW FOODS?
*Any food can be truly called ‘Whole Food’ when it is in it’s most edible, fresh state and contains all it’s respective macro and micro nutrients (vitamins, minerals), phyto-nutrients, fiber, bio-available water and more.
It is always highly recommended to have whole-food most of the time. Some examples are given below:
|WHOLE (OR NEAR TO WHOLE) RAW FOODS
(Have these more)
|NOT WHOLE- RAW FOOD
(Have these less)
-Fruit Smoothie/Green Smoothie
-Orange juice with fiber
-Fresh Raw Vegan Meals
-Dips/dressings made from whole foods
|-Dried fruits like dried prunes, dried raisins etc.
-Dried or Powdered Greens
-Fruit Juice/ Green Juice/ Vegetable Juice
-Dried seeds and dried nuts
-Dehydrated Raw Foods
Q3. WHAT ARE OTHER COMMON NAMES FOR RAW FOOD
Raw food has been given several other names like: Cooked by the Sun or Live food:
Raw food is mostly ripe fruits, vegetables & more in their most natural state. These have been created by nature as a package of whole food for us. They have been nurtured by the elemental energies- earth, water, warmth, air and sky. If they have been grown and harvested naturally then they have been filled with starlight, sunlight and moonlight to nurture the depths of our being.
It has been recorded and researched by many people how a fresh ripe fruit contains live energy, whereas the same energy is lost when we heat the same food above a certain temperature (This is based on the same principle of basic chemistry which is taught in Schools).
Such photographs can also be clicked and validated through what is called a ‘Kirlian’ Camera/Photography (which captures the electromagnetic or energy field of whatever is being photographed).
You can make your own research through Kirlian Photography or by any other means you might know to validate this for yourself.
To ensure that your food has POSITIVE ENERGY you can also learn to heal you food the way we have learned to do. If you want to know more about this subject then we will be happy to share it with you.

It is certainly wonderful for all to have at least some fruits, greens and vegs in our present diet. (However please start by eating only those foods which suit you)
Q6 DO YOU RECOMMEND FULLY RAW DIET?
We do not ourselves follow a fully raw diet or lifestyle now, so we do not tell people about it.
Q7 WHAT ACCORDING TO YOU IS IMPORTANT NUTRIENT IN RAW FOOD?
DID YOU KNOW THAT LIKE CARBOHYDRATE, PROTEIN, FAT- WATER IS ALSO A MACRO NUTRIENT- which means it is required in major quantities to sustain our well-being. Our body is made up of around 70% water. Another greatest quality of fresh fruits and vegetables is that they are also made up of 70-90% or more water. When we eat fresh fruits and vegetables then we receive this most essential nutrient (water) with the combination of all other macro and micro nutrients making it the best quality of purest water we can ever intake.
If you have understood this one important fact, then you are sure to embrace fruits, vegetables and greens in your present lifestyle happily.
Q8. CAN SOMEONE WITH DIABETES OR HIGHER BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS HAVE FRUITS?
A1: There are several studies which we have come across, which show that good quality, whole fruits do not raise blood sugar levels and can actually prevent diabetes. Please consult your an experienced practitioner to know more.
Also check the quality of produce. Try locally grown, seasonal or tree ripened better quality produce. Certain conventional produce can be exposed to chemicals or heat which results in the fruits getting cooked at higher temperatures. Such fruits are not suitable of consumption of anyone including those who are diabetic.
Q9. I HAVE FEAR OF GETTING/ I AM GETTING SOME PIMPLES AFTER EATING CERTAIN FRUITS. WHAT TO DO?
A2. If you are facing this problem can try to change the produce and get better quality. Incase you are already buying good quality ones then it could also be an initial detox which is very good.
Q10. I GET ACIDITY AFTER EATING FRUITS. WHAT TO DO?
Ans. Check food combination and sequencing of having fruits. If you are already following that then it is possible that your body is undergoing a detox and removing excess acidity from your body. You can help yourself with natural de-stress methods, yoga, positive thinking and meditation.
But if it still persists then you can avoid those fruits which increase acidity and have others.
Q11. I FEEL VERY HUNGRY AFTER EATING RAW FOODS. WHAT DO I DO?
Ans. Many people feel very hungry as soon as the start introducing fresh fruits and vegetables in their present lifestyle. The common reason observed is that when you start introducing these nutrient dense foods into your body, your inner system starts to make more space for them to come in. So you can start having these fresh ripe fruits in greater quantity in order to fulfill your bodies desire to be nourished by them.
Q12. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF MONO MEAL?
Eating mono meals of whole ripe fresh organic fruits, vegetables, greens can be the best source of nourishment for ourselves and our children. A mono meal means “one thing at a time, eaten in a quantity which satisfies the hunger completely”. This ensures best digestion and absorption of all essential macro and micro nutrients from each food. Kids and adults love fruits naturally. Fruits can be had in abundance, preferably chopped fine as a mono meal or by mixing minimum ingredients on regular days for optimal digestion.
