Raw food recept – recipe or prescription
by klock75 | on January 6, 2013
The word “recept” translates either to recipe or prescription. You can discover many raw diet recipes on the Internet from just a quick Google search. Here is a great source for recipes, and here is another.
Put simply, raw recipes include a combination of whole foods (or sometimes just one), perhaps “wild” foods, that are not exposed to extreme heat, and often no heat at all. This is said to increase the vibration of the food, and keep the majority of the enzymes and nutrients in tact.
Drinking “juiced” greens or even green smoothies comprised of raw produce is said to help assimilate more of those nutrients because they are consumed in a closer to “digested” state, which is important because in general people do not chew their food sufficiently and miss out on many healthful nutrients.
Some “lazy” (perhaps intelligent) raw foodies will consume just green juices, sometimes also combined with green smoothies. This approach is said to create lasting health results quickly and meal prep time is cut down a great deal as well.

When referring to “prescription” in the phrase raw food recept it refers to the use of “food as medicine” with this diet and lifestyle being prescribed by a doctor, often a natural practitioner schooled in proper nutrition. In other words, a doctor that considers “prevention” more so than “treating symptoms”.
Recept is also defined as the repetition of a mental concept that is developed as a consequence of the process of perception. The repetitive behaviour often causes a mind shift within the subconscious which some people suggest can bring the perception into reality.
Some people need to train their mind to “accept” raw food because they aren’t completely sold on it’s validity but want to believe it because in some cases it may be their most reasonable hope. To do that they may need to create a perception in their mind about some of the many benefits of the raw food diet, and recreate that perception over and over until it is solidified.
This “recept” to some is necessary in life or death situations. Others instinctively know that the raw diet can cleanse their system to the point of becoming more spiritually in tune. Matt Monarch, a famous raw foodist, likened the “state” of a 100% clean raw foodist to that of the “state of awareness” many achieve from the use of cannabis. Please see below for a “top 10 list” for raw food dieting.
10 benefits of a raw food diet
1. Weight loss. Probably the number one reason people become interested in dieting in the first place. A 1999 study on 216 men and 297 women found that men who had switched to a raw diet were able to shed an average of 9.9 kgs, while women lost an average of 12 kgs over a 3.7 year period.
2. Better digestion. Research shows that enzyme-rich raw foods help improve digestion and ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
3. Beautiful skin. Like many others, UK’s number 1 raw chef Russell James discovered raw foodism after multiple attempts of curing a severe case of acne. Water-rich raw fruits and vegetables can significantly improve skin health.
4. Better sleep. Raw foodists report improvements in all aspects of life, particularly sleeping. A study on 70,000 people showed that getting at least 7 hours of good sleep can significantly decrease the chances of heart attacks or coronary artery disease.
5. Thicker, healthier hair. Infusing yourself with vitality through vitamin-rich raw fruits and vegetables can improve the health of the scalp and hair follicles.
6. Less pain. Studies have consistently shown that raw foods help decrease pain. One study looked at 18 fibromyalgia patients and found that after a 3-week raw diet, the patients reported feeling less pain and joint stiffness.
7. Reduced cholesterol levels. One study that looked at 201 raw foodists, found that 54% had high levels of good cholesterol, none had high levels of triglycerides, and only 14% had high levels of bad cholesterol.
8. Improved sex life. Consuming raw foods not only boosts energy levels, but can also help enhance sex drive thanks to plenty of aphrodisiac substances found in raw vegetables, like asparagus, avocado, basil, black sesame, celery and bananas.
9. Better dental health. The right combination of raw foods and a solid self care system can help keep cavities away.
10. Mental clarity. Getting rid of all the additives, dyes, and pesticides in traditional diets may help the individual focus and become more confident in their own abilities.
