Chew your food! Ever heard this? I used to hear "Quit wolfin' it down!" Until now, I've always been a 'fast' eater. Looks as rude as it sounds, I'm sure.
Well, since going raw, it's hard to eat fast, lest ya choke! Fixed MY wagon, dinnit?
I've read to chew my food to a soupy consistency. I looked into it and have found that mommy was right (again).
Chewing starts the digestive process in your mouth. Your saliva releases digestive enzymes that start digesting carbs and fats before you even swallow.
But this, this is the reason that SOLD me: If ya don't chew your food, the nutrients stay locked inside! Hello! So ya go through the 'trouble' of being raw, and you still experience a level of malabsorption? I think not.
On top of that, unchewed food wreaks (reeks?) havoc with your colon, creating bloating and gas.
