Nutritional Myths and Facts I Believe to be True

Myth:
Eating Raw eggs  will make you sick.

Quite the contrary!
Applying high heat to most protein foods including eggs destroys their nutritional value.  The protein and fat in eggs are altered and actually change their chemical shape when cooked.

Organic or at least free range eggs from a known quality source are the perfect addition to an optimal diet plan.  The “Retro-Raw” diet strongly advises eating such eggs raw as they are one of the most easy to digest, complete protein sources…..not to mention they are a great boost to your immune system.

 

Fact:
“What is food to one man, may be poison to another”
My belief is that there is no one way of eating that is best for everyone.  We are all individuals with unique nutritional needs and demands.

 

 

MYTH:
Agave nectar is a Good Natural and raw alternative to cane sugar and even honey.

 

Fact:
Agave has more concentrated fructose in it than high fructose corn syrup!  It is 90% fructose and is highly processed regardless of what the labeling might say. This is more fructose then high fructose corn syrup!
