A recent way of eating that’s fast becoming a movement is called Raw Food. Raw food is food that has not been heated above sun-drying temperatures or 48 degrees Celsius (117 degrees Fahrenheit) which usually means food in its most natural state and uncooked.

Raw foodists eat (preferably organic) fruit and vegetables, seeds, nuts, sprouts, certain seaweeds, raw nut butters and fresh herbs. They believe heating destroys the vital nutrients and enzymes in food and that raw food is “living”, that it has all the goodness, life force, water, oxygen, vitamins and minerals it came with, with nothing added or tainted. Pure and simple.
