Which Is Healthier - Raw Vs Cooked Food

  1. 1. Ever wondered that why is it that we eat some foods raw and some that we cook before eating.The health myth around it is that cooking the food kills bacteria and it is not safe to eat it raw.Firstly not all foods can be eaten raw for eg. meats. Meats cant be eaten raw as it might containthe bacteria borne by the animal itself and need to be boiled and cooked to free it of the bacteria.Secondly its completely healthy to eat raw or slightly cooked vegetables as not only that they arehealthiest in their natural form but each of these vegetables have distinct flavors that can only betasted when eaten raw. Overcooking the vegetables kills the enzymes present in it making it notso nutritious and good for the health and digestion.Here are a few tips on why to eat this and not thatTaste: Taste of raw food is most natural than that of the food which is cooked. Their core idea isthat enzymes are still active in raw food whereas theyre denatured, hence inactive, in cookedfood. Taste of cooked food can be made according to your choice and taste buds but notnecessarily it is healthy and nutritious due to addition of oil and spices in it. Raw food give a morenatural taste. Imagine eating cool cucumber, creamy avocado or a ripe tomato!Digestion: Raw foods are rich in enzymes. Enzymes are needed for the digestive system to work.They are necessary to break down food particles so they can be utilized for energy. Raw fruits andvegetables are rich source in enzymes and breakdown carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Whilecooked food has lower levels of enzymes and in overcooked food it is completely lost which cancause bloating, belching, gas, bowel disorders, abdominal cramping, heartburn and food allergies.Category: Food can be divided into nuts, seeds, pulses, beans, cereals, fruits, vegetable and meatproducts. Nuts, seeds, fruits, dairy products & vegetables can be eaten naturally and whereas ascereals, meats and pulses need to be slightly cooked to make it easier for digestion and process it.Cooked, processed and packaged food contains excess salt which is not natural for the arteriesand blood pressure along with long-term health benefits like water retention.Temperature: Foods like fresh fruits and vegetables are made up of living organism which gives alife span to the food. Food can not bear too much temperature and start to break down whenovercooked. Cooking to a certain extent to soften it and kill the bacteria. Cooking at the righttemperature gives you the option of mixing more than one ingredients in one dish so that you canenjoy your meal fast. Also, when not consuming store vegetables and fruits and other food in therefrigerator so that its life doesnt deteriorate and keeps the bacteria away from developing.Weight Loss: If you look at weight loss and nutrition than raw food is better than cooked food as itwill be easily digestible in your stomach and will provide you with all the essential enzymesrequired to break fats, carbs and protein into energy.Try eating as natural as you can from the food that you like. Cooking food is also a concern forstudents, working people and single persons and they usually complain of not eating healthy fooddue to not having time or resources to cook healthy food. This should simplify life for you. Its timeyou made some healthy choices.
