Nature’s colourful fruits, berries and vegetables contain high levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals, which our bodies need in order to remain healthy. If in addition we combine several different nutritious raw ingredients within a meal, it has been proven that this is even more beneficial. By choosing food that is as close to the natural raw state as possible, that is to say large amounts of greens, along with fish and shellfish containing good fats, while at the same time avoiding processed meat products and overweight, the whole family can build up protection against cancer and other illnesses.
