In a society riddled with fast-food outlets and quick-serve microwave dishes, establishing eating habits that include all-natural raw foods can be a challenge. Nobody speaks into a clown’s nose to order carrot sticks, and the marketing machine pushing celery stalks is considerably thin.
But raw foods – like those served up at the Detox Lounge’s new gourmet raw foods restaurant in downtown San Diego – bring with them healthful benefits that extend far beyond the typical low-cal perks. Whether your raw food of choice consists of lettuce greens or sweet fruits your body stands to benefit every time you crunch into one of nature’s miracle snacks.
So don’t look at raw foods as the backbone to your latest attempt at a diet. Look at them as the fuel your body needs for you achieve:
- Increased energy levels
- Increased stamina
- Clearer, younger-looking skin
- Increased mental alertness
- Better sleep patterns
- Improved digestion
- Fewer colds and flus
- Weight-loss goals
