Taste the Rainbow of RAW veggies

Posted on October 19th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

How many different vegetables did you consume today? Wouldn’t it be nice if our insides could all look this healthy and fresh? Well, it’s not totally impossible. Why not try eating more RAW vegetables with your favorite hummus or simply by themselves. High water and fiber content makes them low-calorie, filling foods that can aid in weight loss by satisfying hunger without significantly contributing to daily caloric intakes. RAW vegetables also have a low glycemic index, which means they cause gradual increases in blood sugar levels instead of spiking blood sugar levels. Cooking vegetables at high temperatures or for long periods of time can significantly reduce their content of vitamin C and B-complex vitamins.
