Raw foods are fresh, unprocessed, and not heated above 118 Fahrenheit. Oook|ng above th|s
temperature can destroy essential enzymes and disrupt the bodys ability to absorb nutrients.
Whole, unprocessed foods in their naturally raw state are high in ber, potassium, and antioxidants,
while being low in sodium and saturated fat. This keeps your gut and arteries clean, and reduces
your risk for heart disease and diabetes.
You`|| fnd a w|de var|ety of raw foods at hea|th food stores, farmer`s markets, and even your |oca|
supermarket, so |t`s eas|er than ever to eat raw!

How to Preserve
!"# %&&'
Raw food has a much shorter she|f ||fe than processed food because |t conta|ns more mo|sture and
none of the preservat|ves.
S|nce raw foods natura||y spo|| qu|ck|y, |t`s essent|a| to |earn effect|ve and safe preservat|on methods
that w||| ensure that you a|ways have someth|ng hea|thy to snack on.
Here are the best ways to store your raw food for long-lasting freshness.
Th|s |s the qu|ckest way to
keep raw food fresh for the
longest amount of time.
S|mp|y package your produce
in glass containers or mason
jars and dice denser items like celery, zucchini,
and onion before freezing.
Keep |n m|nd that even frozen raw food can |ose
nutr|ents over t|me, so take |nventory of the |tems
in your freezer on a regular basis and aim to
consume them within 3 months.
A preservat|on method that
enhances raw food, the fer-
mentation process produces
enzymes and good bacteria
that |mprove d|gest|on and
prevent yeast overgrowth.
This method also breaks down starch and sugar,
mak|ng cu|tured vegetab|es ||ke sauerkraut and
kimchi easy for the body to digest.
Ferment|ng |s easy to do from home, too. A|| you
need is a large mason jar or a fermentation crock pot
and some sea sa|t to store your cu|tured vegg|es.
True to its name, a dehydrator
removes mo|sture from food to
allow for longer storage time.
The low cook temperature
setting keeps food raw while
maintaining its freshness. Dried fruits and nuts
make a perfect on-the-go treat to replace
prepackaged snacks.
After use, turn your dehydrator to |ts h|ghest
sett|ng for two hours to prevent the spread|ng of
bad bacteria and other harmful microbes.
||ke ferment|ng, sprout|ng
also increases the nutritional
va|ue of raw food and makes
them more digestible because
of the natural enzymes that
kick start the digestion process.
Heres the easy way to grow sprouted foods:
1. Soak your seeds, nuts, who|e gra|ns, or
|egumes overn|ght.
2. R|nse w|th fresh water |n the morn|ng.
3. Store ups|de down |n a jar w|th a cheesec|oth
over the top, or sprout|ng bag.
4. R|nse every 12 hours or so.
5. Expose the sprouts to sun||ght |n the fna| stage
before eating to increase chlorophyll absorption.
