Summer is a great time to help the body slowly and naturally detoxify itself, get vitamins and minerals in their purest form, and allow the natural enzymes found in each food to do their jobs. Eating raw foods, direct from the garden [or somebody else's - check out your local farmers market] is a fantastic way to do that. The best part is--there is minimal to no preparation time [if you are like my husband, the cherry tomatoes don't make it into the house!]
Salads are another fantastic way to get creative even if you aren't so handy in the kitchen. This post is more a "motivational speaker" moment and really my simple attempt at encouraging you all to eat more raw foods this summer!
