I think of RAW food as the ultimate FAST FOOD!! When you think about it, how much time does it take to prep an apple or a banana? How about make a salad? Not much time at all…it is ready to be eaten. I can even make raw chocolate faster than running to the store to grab chocolate bars. Sometimes it takes some extra prep time if I’m making a more elaborate meal, but that applies to cooked foods too. The difference is you don't have to wait for it to cook; it's ready to eat right away!
