I’ve often wondered about people who eat mostly raw diets. The theories behind it make sense..but then again, so do lots of theories that are scientifically incorrect.
If you follow me on twitter or instagram then you’ll know I’m currently in Koh Samui, Thailand. While researching things to do on the island and where I could possibly find vegetarian food, I came across a raw food cooking school. This is an extremely exciting discovery!
I’ve always wanted to go to cooking classes overseas but have always hesitated as being a vegetarian might make class difficult. I don’t want to be chopping chicken, beef and cooking other things that I don’t believe in eating and would never cook.
This spurred me into researching raw diets and the science behind raw foodism.
I was a little surprised by what I found and to make things easier, have put the findings into bullet points:
* Raw food theory – cooked food causes toxemia (definition: blood poisoning by toxins from a local bacterial infection.). Raw foodists believe you can’t be healthy without eliminating cooked food and switching to a raw food diet.
