There is a new movement in the world of culinary trends that are excited debated in recent times, namely Living Food Diet (or often called the Raw Food Diet). Followers of this movement believe that the best food for body and soul of man is food that is not cooked!

Forget the vegan movement, because this movement is far more extreme than just being a vegetarian. For adherents who understand raw food fanatics, the best foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are fresh, organic, never in the freeze, and raw!

Actually this is not understood very recently because the trail can we trace its history to 1839 when Sylvester Graham tahin (pioneer of the vegetarian movement in America) wrote an article that emphasizes the idea that human beings will never hurt if men consume only raw foods. Although this is a very controversial idea at the time (even he had received death threats from the Butcher / butcher), his article widely welcomed because he argues that before finding the fire, early humans also used to rely on raw foods and they can “survive” with the diet was to be able to produce offspring, we arrive at this time.

This idea was later also supported by Artturi Vertanen a Nobel laureate in the field of biochemistry which proves scientifically that there are important enzymes in raw foods come out when food is chewed, and the enzyme is produced along with the enzymes our bodies will chime in and produce the most optimal benefits for our bodies. However, these beneficial enzymes that will actually be damaged or lost when food is heated During his temperature is 46 degrees – 48 degrees C.

According to advocates of this idea, the heating process can merusaka quality of food because their natural fibers will “break”, oxygen levels will be lost, some heat sensitive vitamins such as vitamin C will also be damaged, and free radicals are formed. Freezing process is also believed to be changing kualitaas natural enzymes contained in food that we eat. Even for materials nuts and seeds, they do not need to be cooked. Simply soak in water until soft and then eat just like that.

Many people who diet supernatural belief is testified that this new way of eating can turn them inside out. Being slimmer, healthier, more energetic, stamina increased, the disappearance of body odor and bad breath, rarely sick, smoother skin, and looked younger are some of the many benefits that are often conveyed by the adherents of this idea.

And raw food like this does not mean should tudaj good, you know! Precisely these movements are gaining momentum since many celebrities and famous chef who menyokongnya so people see this idea as something that is trendy, funky, but also yummy. Even one of Charlie Trotter from Chicago’s famous Celebrity Chef publish a special recipe book that contains ideas, techniques, and new recipes to process these raw foods.

The recipes are indeed somewhat unique, there is a menu of pad thai made from coconut meat mudaa, there is a burrito that was replaced with lettuce, and others. What is clear, everything was not cooked, all fresh, all natural, and not using preservatives, dyes, or sensitive material. Anyway should be as fresh as possible in order to optimize benefits for the body!

But what’s really great about raw food is that much?
Those who oppose this idea argue that raw foods because it may endanger health or harmful bacteria like salmonella and E Coli (plus it was crowded today: the avian flu virus) can in fact rampant in the body.
Well-cooked food is the only way to ensure that bacteria and viruses do not contaminate what we eat.

This diet is also not easy, can be very expensive even if we insist on using only organic fruits and vegetables. Raw food preparation process is also more difficult and long because it involves many processes to cut, chop, to a blender, soak, etc., so that food is more easily digested stomach later. Natural spices such as ginger, onion, garlic, chili, spices, and herbs also tend to be more widely used, so a bit more troublesome. More trouble again because the food like this can not be stored longer and must be
prepared every time we want to eat.

And if you’re the type who lunch depending on what is available in the office canteen, eating raw like this would also be difficult because you usually tend to be limited options, especially if you’re based in Jakarta.

According to nutritionists, diet like this is also less suitable for Wanit ahamil, children, and people who need high protein because protein intake susum eggs and meat, and fish are far more readily accepted and absorbed by most people.

Balanced nutrition of cooked food also tend to be more readily accepted because it is through the creative process Masako, cooked food can be more easily aroused than the taste of raw food. If there is a component of vitamin or mineral is lost from the heating process, yet we can still add to it with fruit juice and vegetable intake and other dietary supplements.

I personally still a bit difficult to accept and adopt the raw food diet. But the basic idea is very interesting because we are living in this modern age do have bad eating habits so that intake of fresh fruits and vegetables that will help us to live a better and more comfortable if we combine the cooked food and raw diets this by adding caara food servings of fruits and vegetables so that in our daily diet.
