When most people think of comfort food, they think warming hot soups, casseroles and stews, macaroni and cheese, baked lasagna, warm mashed potoatos, apple pie, or pumpkin pie to name a few. There are three things that all of those food choices have in common. They are all hot meals or desserts, most of us can say YES – they were childhood comfort food favorites and all of them could not live without an oven.
Raw Food or Live Food or Live Plant food as it is sometimes also called, is food that doesn’t use an oven. It is food that hasn’t been “cooked” – at least not in the tradtional sense. Rather, it is food prepared and maybe, sometimes warmed, but never at tempertures higher than 118 degrees. It is an organic plant-based vegan diet that is gaining renewed popularity and interest as it offers an enviromentally sustainable way to get a powerhouse of beneficial live plant food onto your meal plate.
You could say that Raw Food is the most ancient of all food styles, because long before fire was discovered, that is just what our great ansestors ate – Raw Food.
