Using a High Speed Blender for a Raw Food Diet

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Mahalo cooking expert Miranda Valentine tells you how to use a high speed blender on a raw food diet. While blenders of all speeds can be used for a raw food diet, high speed blenders get the job done fast, leaving all of the nutrients within the raw foods intact. Why a High Speed Blender? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Raw foodists do not cook their food. That being the case, it is essential to get the most nutrition from the foods they eat. Using a high speed blender does just that by breaking through the cell walls of whole raw foods without the need for high temperatures to do so. By rupturing the cell walls, the blender allows the nutrients from the foods that prevent and fight diseases to become bioavailable to the human body. c What to Look For --------------------------------------------------------------------- Look for glass blenders or BPA-free containers as they tend to last longer and are less prone to stains and scratches.?2. Blenders with removable blades are easier to clean and won't rust as easily. 3. If you go for a high speed blender, make sure it has a skid-proof base, as the blender will likely slide across the counter otherwise.? 4. A secured lid is also key to avoid spills and splashes. 5. Two blenders that are highly recommended for raw food are the Vitamix and the Blendtec. c Raw Foods in a Blender --------------------------------------------------------------------- Using a blender to make juices on a raw food diet will leave you with juice in its purest form. Unlike juice from a juice extractor, with a blender you will receive the full health benefits in a raw food juice without a "fiber feel." Blenders are also a great way to make soups and sauces from raw food ingredients. Add the raw foods of your choice, season to taste and blend. You don't need to peel, seed, strain or stir. You can also use your blender to make sorbets, dressings, nut milks, smoothies and purees. c Read more by visiting our page at:
