There is a good reason that eating vegan is sometimes called “Eating clean.” Living Clean or Eating Clean as is built on the premise that “if you are what you eat then you should eat the best that you can.”

If you are eating dirty, then you are eating old dead food. The more refined a food is, the deader it is and the worse it is for your physical health.

Eating vegan means –

Eat live foods. Eating live foods means consuming fresh foods Stay away from eating dead foods. These are foods that must be trucked from far away and are sprayed with preservatives, have been processed or that have been sitting around on a store shelf for too long.

Eating locally. Eating locally means that you are not going to eat food that is transported from a long ways away. This also reduces your likelihood of eating a GMO food that has been altered not to rot. Food that is not grown near you tends to be grown with more pesticide, is more at risk of being rotten or containing e-coli and is older so it does not taste as good. Foods that are grown locally are fresher, have more nutrition and taste better. When you eat locally you also help reduce global warming and it helps your local economy.

Eating raw. Eating raw means eating as many raw vegan foods as you can so that you can get the most nutrients from what you consume. Most of us eat food that is heated over 188 degrees, which destroys most of its nutrients. Cooking food also destroys many of the natural enzymes that are used by the body to break down food for digestion and facilitate the absorption of nutrients and the expelling of waste. Old dead food that is processed, salty and stoked with chemical preservatives simply passes through the body with no real benefits.

There are a lot of benefits to eating raw and that includes more energy during the day and a deeper, more satisfying night’s sleep. When you eat raw you can practically feel your skin healing itself at night. You have more than enough fiber to keep your bowel movements regular, which in turn improves cell respiration and fights cell oxidization and aging.

Yet another benefit of eating raw is that you can eat as much as you want without becoming toxic or clogging up your system. You never have to go hungry because raw foods are complex carbohydrates that have a low glycemic index.

Eating organically is another principle to keep in mind as you become vegan.

There are two great reasons to eat organically and that is that is your only assurance of totally avoiding pesticides and antibiotic-resistant infections. You also support local farmers and smaller agricultural operations when you eat organic; it is more ethical.

Finally it is also important to eat alkaline. Eating alkaline means mostly eating raw foods with a low acid content. Bacteria and viruses cannot live in a highly alkaline environment and if your body is not acidic no disease can take root.
