For my first post I would like to address an instrumental part of my progression as a raw foodist, which is the issue of sprouting. Sprouting predigests the food, which is the process that begins breaking down complex molecules into their simpler forms and more easily absorbed forms(Fats-Fatty Acids, Proteins-Amino Acids, Carbohydrates - Simple Sugars) and also increases their nutrients dramatically. These "Biogenic" foods are still growing which makes them so much more viable to the body and, as an added benifit, they contain such high level of Life Force energy. As Dr. Cousens simply puts it, "It is the difference of the Bioactivity of a growing child Vs. that of an Aging adult." -Also the fat in a sprouted Almond changes its Configuration(the "Cis" isomer of fat) transforms into it's more active form and begins to link and bond w/ other fatty acids(otherwise more fat is changed from monounsaturated into Polyunsaturated fat).
Since growing and sprouting almost all the food I eat(about 70%Sprouts & 30%Raw Food) I feel such a renewed sense of being and energy. I know all the Love and Energy that goes into growing and making all the wonderful recipes they help me create; and I know my body thanks Me in return.
-Here are some Pics.
