I have worked with raw cultured vegetables since 1980 when I founded Rejuvenative Foods. These past decades have seen an explosion in the awareness of the importance of minimally processed, organically produced foods for our physical, mental—even spiritual—health and well-being. In particular, people have really come to value the great benefits of a diet rich in raw or living foods.
Why eat raw cultured vegetables? Like any other living thing, the human body functions and metabolizes thanks to enzymes and enzymatic actions. That’s why it’s so beneficial to feed your body enzyme-rich foods, like raw cultured vegetables.
This is especially true when organs have been overused, producing enzymes to process overwhelming amounts of bulky, refined foods that take away digestive juices and give little or nothing back to the body. Nature designed the enzyme-making processes to be used for the purpose of normal metabolism—the rejuvenation of cells, the elimination of toxins, and the growing and strengthening of the immune system—with the minimum amount of enzyme production required for digestion. This makes sense when we consider that when nature designed the human body, there were no refined or processed foods, and a minimum of cooked foods, but raw and live foods full of enzymes were plentiful. It’s profoundly beneficial to eat enzyme-rich raw cultured vegetables to give your body a chance to make enzymes to rejuvenate itself instead of wasting a large portion of those enzymes and enzyme-making abilities digesting food. Most people are more commonly aware of cultured dairy products, including yoghurt and kefir, as a means to restore healthy microflora to their system. Doctors often recommend yogurt to reimplant lactobacilli after taking antibiotics. But according to the National Institutes of Health, some thirty million Americans will develop lactose intolerance by the age of twenty (NIH, 2006), so raw cultured vegetables present an important alternative for those who experience adverse effects to dairy. Whether or not you have a lactose intolerance or other dairy allergies, you will find that raw cultured vegetables provide you with crucial enzymes free of any feelings of heaviness that usually accompany dairy consumption.
By eating raw cultured vegetables and experiencing how they affect our feeling of vibrancy and well-being, we can test out their physiological health benefits. We can experience the vibrancy of raw cultured vegetables just by their smell and the zingy taste. You can buy raw cultured vegetables, which include sauerkraut and kimchi, and use them with the recipes in this book, or make your own (instructions also included here). The possibilities are as varied as the wide world of vegetables and your imagination.
Whether you eat raw cultured vegetables by themselves or in combination with other foods, you’ll experience their wonderful health benefits. Eating raw cultured vegetables at the same time as other foods, putting a little on the same fork or spoon, is particularly beneficial for a couple of reasons. First, this means you’re eating cultured vegetables more regularly and making them a part of your life and eating habits. Second, the probiotic process occurs more effectively as you’re chewing the cultured vegetables (which have naturally present lactobacilli and enzymes) with your starches and proteins.
By paying attention to the food we eat and the processes involved in bringing our vegetables to the table and into our bodies, we have as a society become increasingly aware of the social, political, and personal benefits of prioritizing consumption of fresh, pure, whole foods. On the individual level, people can experience the soothing, empowering, healing benefits and resulting peace that come through eating vibrantly alive and delicious raw cultured vegetables.
