Raw food is often more healthy because it still contains all the nutrients that nature intended.  Also, many enzymes which aid digestion are sensitive to heat meaning they are often destroyed by cooking. High temperatures as in cooking also destroy protein and many vitamins.  It is therefore advisable to incorporate raw fruits and vegetables into your  diet. Raw ingredients are also an important source of fibre which aids digestion.

Off course there are salads, but why not try this delicious recipe?
