Improve your lifestyle, revitalise your health, and stimulate your taste buds with this delicious raw salad dressing
This salad dressing is so fresh and alive because it hasn’t been exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius (105 degrees Fahrenheit) – thus maintaining its enzymatic and nutritional properties.
A well-balanced diet of uncooked plant foods contains all of the vitamins and minerals necessary for leading a healthy life. Cooking destroys over 80% of a food’s nutritive value! Plus, cooking annihilates up to 100% of the enzymes in food. Yikes!
Enzymes are important because they’re responsible for every metabolic process that occurs in our bodies – from digesting food to repairing our cells. When you eat lots of fresh salads with raw dressings (like this one above), the enzymes in them practically digest themselves. That means more energy for you to run around doing what you enjoy! I mean who enjoys passing out after meals?
