The raw food diet consists of unheated, mostly meatless foods. It primarily entails the consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and honey, including dairy and milk products. Raw food vegans reject grains on the grounds that grains will congest the body with mucous.
Raw food vegans believe that heating food destroys important vitamins and nutrients. They therefore eat only raw foods or foods heated to a maximum of 42 degrees. This includes, for example, lots of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and herbs. Raw food vegans say that they want to live the same way as when humans had not yet discovered fire. Who can really tell us when people discovered fire?
My explanation: Raw food advocates do not avoid white sugar, honey, artificial sweeteners, meat products, dairy products, white flour products, nightshade vegetables, table salt, etc.
“Raw foodists” – a term that raw food advocates despise (I do not make use of this term) – should not draw their knowledge from gramophones. Even just cooking food on low and leaving it raw are two different behaviors. And preparing food too hot or just heating it are also two different behaviors.
And whoever interprets the teachings of Jesus – only the original teachings – correctly, will arrive at cooking on low heat. What’s more, this information only applies in hot climates, where the stones heat up to about 70 °C during the day without a fire.
Eskimos have to prepare their food differently than Africans, Americans and Europeans.
And who says that rice has to be boiled in order to get it soft? That’s merely a quicker way of doing it. And food heated to 70 °C – including rice – is warm enough.
If these raw food advocates were obtaining nature knowledge from the masters who paved the way, these conflicts would not exist.
Jesus taught in an environment where the stones got 70 °C. Jesus did not teach that raw food is the best diet. (Jesus only lived in Corsica after he had fled from Jerusalem. He spread his teachings in the hot Jerusalem. To what extent this version is true is also nothing but gramophone knowledge.)
But all this is secondary. What is of primary importance is that we intuitively interpret his teachings correctly.
