If you're thinking of eating uncooked and unprocessed foods, or simply introducing a few small changes a day in your diet, we hope our little guide has been of some help. There are so many benefits eating natural, and we really hope you'll give it a go. If eating raw food is really not your bag, then we recommend steaming your veg lightly (3 mins only), as this does not remove all the nutrients, and they give your digestion a bit of exercise!
