Vision, Mission & Purpose of Best of Raw
We love our role in encouraging humanity to add more raw organic plant foods to the diet to increase health and reduce our ecological footprint. By supporting, promoting and celebrating the key leaders, food manufacturers, movers & shakers of the movement, through education, events & contests both online and in person, we feel we our doing our part in assisting humanity at this time of awakening to embrace healthier, more life sustaining practices. As more people discover the health benefits of adding more raw, or ‘going all raw,’ our human family will have more access to the energy, enthusiasm, inspiration & vitality required to solve our world’s challenges to create a harmonious global reality.
Eco-Sustainable Food Practices
By inviting humanity to add more raw, organic foods to the diet, eating local whenever possible, we are encouraging a trend towards a smaller ecological footprint. If you think about it, 7 billion people eating every day, takes an absolutely enormous amount of our collective planetary resources. Since our technology and farming practices have not yet caught up completely with our desire for a clean and healthy environment, it is our responsibility to find ways to immediately and drastically reduce this impact. Adding more raw organic plant foods to the diet, locally grown whenever possible, is one giant leap towards each individual’s ability to do their part in shrinking the damage. The side benefit of eating this way? People get healthier, and many even report becoming disease-free.
