Who needs this damn frying pan! Ooo yum, raw nuts…
What is the deal with this raw food craze? Whoever invented fire must die (oh wait, he or she probably already is!). You can say bye bye to foods like chicken, beef, eggs…
Oh wait, that looks pretty raw to me!
Celebs like Alicia Silverstone have adopted this kooky diet because they feel it cleanses their bodies (thanks to not eating processed foods)… but eating a raw vegan diet can lead to serious malnourishment.
Whoops… I mean…
The diet is generally 75% fruits and vegetables, which is great (all you chickens out there can rest easy… well until I come along) because raw foodies love to devour seaweed, sprouts, seeds and beans.
Wait, Uma is drinking in this picture?
What’s the point of this diet? Rawists believe that heating food higher than 118 degrees will kill key enzymes and vitamins in the food they’re eating… I wonder if they go in saunas?
I don’t think they can wear these either.
So yeah, this diet sounds measly, right? Exactly… which is why many fear that people who follow this eating trend will not get the proper nutrients, which leads to deficiencies.
Vitamin B12, which is critical for nerve and red blood cell development, is ONLY found in those CUTE LITTLE FARM ANIMALS… and if you don’t eat them… you could acquire anemia (excessive tiredness and bruising) and could become neurologically impaired.
Where’s the mustard?
Not getting enough calcium and healthy fat is another problem with this diet… oh heck, there is just a whole lot of problems with this diet. If you really really do feel the need to go this route though, seek a nutritionist’s advice… not Demi Moores’!
I feel like taking my frying pan and hitting some sense into these raw food celebs! Alright, no, I cannot really tell them what to do… but I can tell myself to… sear up some steak RIGHT NOW!
