Re: Raw food diet
Was it all about juicing? I believe we were born with the best processor of all: Teeth! If we chew our raw vegetables it takes time and that allows for saliva to mix with the food and do its thing to aid digestion. You can't beat what nature gave us. Also, you get bulk (fiber) and the feeling of fullness and time for the brain to send a signal that you've had enough to eat.
In my opinion, juicing should only be a last resort for people who are having serious health issues where they can't chew or are having problems swallowing.
But I'm 100% in favor of eating raw vegetables to promote health. :-)
