Raw food is taking center stage these days in discussions around diet and better health. In fact, in the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated — the swimsuit issue — supermodel Carol Alt credits her health and stunning beauty to her own raw food diet.
For those interested in learning how to incorporate raw foods into a healthy lifestyle, The Raw Food Institute (RFI) — an award-winning dietary immersion and detoxification center that promotes a healthier, happier living through a plant-based raw food diet — can provide guidance, education and recipes to help anyone get started.
Founded in 2009, the RFI provides advice and classes for those interested in learning how to incorporate healthier eating practices into a daily regimen—as a portion or an entire diet. A raw food diet, which often consists primarily of beans, berries, greens, grains, onions and mushrooms, actually refers to all food that hasn’t been heated over 115 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit — in order to preserve natural nutrients and energy.
"Raw foods are exactly what our bodies were designed to eat — and there are plenty of easy ways to incorporate raw food into our diets. Even simple additions such as one salad a day can result in positive health transformations," said Lisa Wilson, founder, The Raw Food Institute. "This isn’t a trendy diet — it’s a century-old movement that’s gaining momentum again, thanks to Carol Alt and other awareness-building in the food world. It’s exciting to see raw food potlucks on Meetup.com, critically acclaimed raw food restaurants and juice bars appearing across the country. We are hoping to make it easier and more fun for everyone to try a recipe, or attend one our classes, so you can feel the difference many of us have already experienced."
The RFI offers weeklong live immersion programs, distance learning programs, a Raw Food Educator program as well as a weekly e-newsletter, easy how-to videos and a blog featuring seasonal recipes. For more information about The Raw Food Institute, visit therawfoodinstitute.com.
