You've probably heard about this lifestyle called the "raw diet" (especially if you're a regular reader of this blog) but you might be confused as to what exactly it is. It's a pretty simple concept, really -- when fruits, vegetables, and nuts are cooked or processed, they lose some of their all-important nutrients and enzymes, rendering them less healthful to the human body. With the raw lifestyle, food is either eaten cold, or heated up to only 118 degrees and leaving these nutrients intact, which can lead to a wide range of benefits, from clearing up problem skin to improving digestion.

A raw food diet might seem challenging, with what may seem like a million restrictions and tons of meal prep work involved. But once you commit and get the hang of it, you'll realize it's not so hard at all (especially when you start feeling the positive results in your body). And eating raw doesn't mean endless meals of green salads and sunflower seeds. You can have your desserts, too! Just check out these Sprouted Cookies from Go Raw. Available in 6 different varieties, Sprouted Cookies are sweet, sesame seed-based confections made from raw ingredients with no added sugar or salt. They're cooked at about 105 degrees and contain no GMOs, trans fat, or cholesterol. Delicious, satisfying, and filling, you won't ever miss the mass market grocery store versions ever again. Especially when you check out some of these decadent flavors like Ginger Snap, Chai Spice, and Carrot Cake, all of which would fit in perfectly on any holiday dessert table.
