Cooking Raw Style
Cooking raw food recipes sounds a bit like an oxymoron, but, it really isn’t. If you take the word ‘cook’ and think about controlling the heat rather than not using any heat at all, then you’ve got it.
Raw foods are those that have not been exposed to temperatures higher than between 92º Fahrenheit and 118º Fahrenheit (which is approximately between 33° Celsius and 48° Celsius). This varying in temperature ranges can change depending upon the diet.
Most raw food diets and recipes are centered around organic wholefoods. This isn’t something that is necessarily exclusive to organic produce, but organic is much better.
