Extra Energy Orbs

You may have heard about people eating raw foods lately and wondered what sort of foods they are. We are all starting to understand and pay attention to what we put into our mouths and the effect it is having on our bodies. We are gaining more understanding about how our health and wellbeing is dependent on the quality of our food and it has long been know that healthier diets are those that include some raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

One easy way we can get these is when we eat raw snacks. Having one or two of these during the day will help us meet our nutritional needs. More and more people are switching over to a healthier more plant based diet and having raw snacks is a good way to eliminate some non-nutrient processed food and replace it with higher quality foods.

We are also hearing a lot about how carbohydrate foods are bad for us but we are only talking about empty processed foods like potato chips, candy, cookies, pastries and soda. Things with no nutrients but usually loaded with unhealthy sugars, fats, chemicals and additives and tons of empty calories. Raw snacks made with natural whole foods like nuts, seeds, coconut, dried fruits and even vegetables and not only good for you, they are vital to your health as long as they are not cooked and processed to death.
