Staying Warm on Raw Foods

It's easy to be a raw foodist in the summer, when temperatures are high and smoothies and salads ahound, however the real test happens when the days get shorter and those chilly winter months swing into full effect. Here are 5 tips to stick to your healthy raw food diet and keep your immune system going strong all winter long.

1. While most people assume eating raw means always having cold food, however warm foods are very doable on a raw food diet - you can actually let your food get to room temperature or warm it slightly (never above 115F though or else you will be killing off healthy enzymes).
2. Occasionally if you are going to cook foods, cook at a lower temperature, which preserves much more nutritional value and avoids exploding out of their natural colloidal form! Lower temperature for 10 minutes or more versus cooking high temperature for 2-3 minutes.
3. Put cold foods from the fridge in dehydrator/oven for few minutes to make it room temperature or just leave veggies out at room temperature for 30 minutes or more before eating. Put foods on warm plates.
4. Add more heating spices to food such as cayenne, ginger, peppercorn and garlic.
5. Drink warm beverages: herbal teas, (see below), apple cider, lemon water, ginger slices in hot water (with lemon), cacao chocolate drink with raw nut milk
