Live and Raw Food around Perth
Following a raw food diet is the dietary practice of eating only uncooked, unprocessed foods.
Depending on the philosophy, or type of lifestyle and results desired, raw food diets may include a selection of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, meat and dairy products.
It may also include simply processed foods such as various types of sprouted seeds, cheese, and fermented foods such as yogurts, kefir, kombucha or sauerkraut, but generally not foods that have been pasteurized, homogenized, or produced with the use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, industrial solvents or chemical food additives.
Raw foods included on such diets have not been heated above 40 °C (104 °F). It is believed that foods cooked above this temperature have lost a lot of their nutritional value and are less bioavailable.
Here are some places around Perth that offer live and raw food selections for you to check out.
181A High St., Fremantle WA
Enjoy your meal at The Raw Kitchen restaurant or if you are in a hurry, order something for take away. They have a range of raw treats to indulge in and tucked in along side the restaurant is one of my favourite stores in Perth. The store is a sustainable choice for specialty items that are kind to humans and the planet.
This is where I purchased my ‘Oh She Glows’ cookbook that I discussed in one of my previous posts. If you are interested in purchasing a copy for yourself or for a gift, make sure you call ahead to ensure that they have it in stock because this popular book flies off the shelf!
The Raw Kitchen also offers workshops and lectures as well as yoga classes. It’s the ultimate one stop shop!
