Daily Nutrition Nibble: Eat some Enzymes!

Did you know that raw foods are full of enzymes that help boost our immune system, aid in digestion, and help with the metabolic and regenerative processes in our body?  When we aren’t getting enough enzymes in our diet, we can feel tired and generally unwell. Try eating raw nuts, fruits and vegetables. You can also start sprouting your own seeds for some added enzymes in your diet! Some of the easiest seeds to sprout include lentils, quinoa, mung beans, and alfalfa. Make a mental note that cooking food destroys the beneficial enzymes, so make an effort to eat raw as often as possible.
