Ian Keogh, Co-Organizer of Jax Raw – Northeast Florida’s Raw & Living Foods Meetup Group
, will be at Native Sun Natural Foods Market on the Southside (11030 Baymeadows Road) on Tuesday, September 14 at 8pm
to discuss the basics of raw food, the scientific research behind raw food theory, and his personal experience with the raw lifestyle.
Raw Food diets are based on the idea that enzymes are essential for health and digestion, and that heating food above 104-120°F destroys these enzymes. Therefore a raw lifestyle promotes the consumption of uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet. This may include fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes.
Specific topics may include macronutrients, the human diet, digestion theories, raw recipes ideas and enzymes for health, longevity and weight loss. Raw food samples will be available.
Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling 904-260-2791.
