There has been a recent resurgence in raw food. Everyone wants to go greener and some people are taking it a step further by going raw. 

It is a fact that many beneficial enzymes are lost while foods are cooked. The remedy for this problem may just be increasing your intake of raw food.                                                  
Although it may seem a little challenging to eat 100% raw, it actually challenges your creativity in the kitchen, allowing you to think about food in a different way as well as providing you with benefits such as “increased energy, improved skin appearance, better digestion, weight loss, and reduced risk of heart disease,” according to AltMedicine.about.com.

While aspects of eating raw have come in and out of style in the past, Raw Foodism is becoming an evident lifestyle, especially in larger cities. New York has over 12 restaurants offering delicious raw dishes and major cities like Toronto, Seattle and Atlanta are embracing the culture of Raw Foodism with similar restaurants popping up all over. Take cooking lessons at Toronto’s Live or train as a raw chef in New York’s Raw Soul. Karyn’s Fresh Corner in Chicago even offers services such as Aqua Chi and InfraRed Saunas on top of their raw delicacies.

Whether you are and avid raw food fan or just curious, going out for a raw meal is a mouth-wateringly unique experience that is rewarding for your mind, body and tastebuds.
