If you are hungry all of the time … more often than not, (apart from lack of sleep) it’s because your body is starved of nutrients.
This is because when the diet is made up predominantly of highly refined, processed and cooked foods which are void of nutrients, it leads to increased appetite, cravings and fatigue.
Something shift workers experience often.
On the other hand, raw foods provide the body with satiety and help to subside cravings for sweets and other things that may not serve you. This is because raw foods contain fibre and vital enzymes which are crucial for cellular function, optimal digestion and overall health.
This leads to stable blood sugar which will help you to stop snacking in between meals.
Raw foods are quite literally living food – straight from the earth.
Food is considered raw until heated above 42 degrees Celcius (107 F) – that’s where the bioavailability of nutrients change.
The inclusion of mint, basil and parsley in this recipe is super refreshing and uplifting on the taste buds which means it can also help in overcoming bouts of brain fog, especially during early or night shifts.
If your answer is yes to this question it’s not surprising given, for many years, we were lead to believe that fat and cholesterol causes heart disease.
However, this diet-heart hypothesis was later discredited as fraudulent science when the real culprit was, and still is, sugar.
