  • Why I Love Apricots

When apricots are truly ripe, they are like the sweetest jam straight from the tree. If you have ever picked from a tree a tree-ripen and still warm from sun-bathing on a hot summer day, apricot, and then bitten into its soft, jam-like consistency, than you know what child-like happiness feels like. 

If you miss that tree-picking, sun-kissed apricot experience in your life, no worries because this recipe will bring some of its magic back to you.

If you have your apricots ready, let’s turn them into that warm magic.

When warmed up, ripe apricots give that smooth texture and delicious taste of a jam. But this time we won’t compromise our health with a standard sugar-laden cooked jam, but rather just warmed apricots that are still raw and healthy!

Before I share with you the ingredients for raw, yet warm apricots, let us see why would anyone be even interested in eating a raw vegan diet.

What Are the Health Benefits of a Raw Vegan Diet?

A raw vegan diet offers a myriad of health benefits, making it a popular choice for those seeking a wholesome lifestyle. Here are key advantages:

  1. Nutrient-Rich Goodness
    Consuming a variety of raw, plant-based foods ensures a rich intake of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These nutrients promote overall well-being, support immune function, and contribute to radiant skin and hair.
  2. Enhanced Digestive Health
    The abundance of fibre in raw vegan foods aids digestion and promotes a healthy gut. Improved digestion can alleviate issues such as bloating and constipation, fostering a more comfortable and efficient digestive system.
  3. Natural Energy Boost
    Raw vegan diets are known to provide a sustained energy boost. The natural sugars in fruits and the complex carbohydrates in vegetables offer a steady release of energy, reducing reliance on processed foods and artificial stimulants.
  4. Weight Management
    Many individuals turn to raw veganism as an effective way to manage weight. The emphasis on nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods helps maintain a healthy weight, while the abundance of fiber contributes to a feeling of fullness.
  5. Disease Prevention
    The high intake of fruits and vegetables has been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. The powerful antioxidants found in these foods contribute to cellular health and may offer protection against oxidative stress.
  6. Environmental Impact
    Adopting a raw vegan diet aligns with eco-conscious living. By reducing reliance on animal products, individuals contribute to lower carbon footprints and sustainable food practices, supporting a healthier planet.

Remember, before making significant dietary changes, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian to ensure your nutritional needs are met.

Embracing a raw vegan lifestyle can be transformative, providing a path to holistic well-being and a more mindful approach to nutrition.

  • What are the health benefits of eating apricots?

Eating apricots can offer a range of health benefits due to their nutrient content. Here are some potential health benefits associated with the consumption of apricots:

  • Rich in Nutrients

Apricots are a good source of essential vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, (precursors of vitamin A), vitamin C, potassium (K), and dietary fibre. These nutrients play vital roles in supporting overall health.

  • Excellent Source of Beta-Carotene, (precursors of vitamin A)

Apricots are particularly high in beta-carotene, which turn into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for maintaining healthy skin, promoting good vision, and supporting immune function.

  • Antioxidant Properties

The presence of antioxidants in apricots, including beta-carotene and vitamins C and E, helps neutralise free radicals in the body. Antioxidants contribute to the prevention of oxidative stress and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

  • Heart Health

The potassium content in apricots supports heart health by helping regulate blood pressure. Potassium is a crucial mineral that aids in maintaining proper fluid balance and supporting cardiovascular function.

  • Digestive Health

Apricots are a good source of dietary fibre, which aids in digestion and helps prevent constipation. Fibre also contributes to a feeling of fullness, which can be beneficial for weight management.

  • Eye Health

The high levels of beta-carotene in apricots are beneficial for eye health. Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body, and it plays a key role in maintaining vision and preventing age-related macular degeneration.

  • Skin Health

Vitamin A and other antioxidants in apricots contribute to skin health by promoting cell turnover and protecting the skin from oxidative damage. These nutrients may help maintain a healthy complexion.

  • Bone Health

Apricots contain minerals like calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P), which are essential for maintaining strong and healthy bones. These minerals contribute to bone density and support overall skeletal health.

  • Weight Management

The fibre content in apricots can aid in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness. Including fiber-rich foods in the diet may help control appetite and reduce overall calorie intake.

  • Cancer Prevention

Some studies suggest that the antioxidants in apricots may have protective effects against certain types of cancers. However, more research is needed to fully understand the relationship between apricots and cancer prevention.

  • First and foremost: Clean water

Before we even think of making this healthy recipe, let’s acknowledge that it is of crucial importance to make sure that the base of this recipe is wholesome and pure.

Let me ask you: what kind of water do you drink? 

In the sense of this particular article, here is the right question: what kind of water do you EAT in your food daily? 

This piece is of HUGE importance! 

Personally, I use reverse osmosis system to ensure pure water in my home. Let’s see what are the health benefits of using a RO system.

What Are the Health Benefits of Drinking Reverse Osmosis Filtered Water?

Drinking reverse osmosis (RO) filtered water offers numerous health benefits.

  • Purity Beyond Impurities

RO filtration effectively removes impurities, contaminants, and toxins, providing water free from chlorine, heavy metals, and harmful microorganisms.

  • Optimal Hydration

The elimination of pollutants enhances water quality, promoting optimal hydration crucial for bodily functions, skin health, and overall well-being.

  • Mineral Retention

Unlike common misconceptions, RO filtration selectively removes impurities while retaining essential minerals, ensuring a balanced and clean drinking experience.

Elevate your hydration with the purity of RO filtered water—a refreshing choice for lasting health.

What Are the Health Benefits of Preparing food in a Dehydrator vs. Oven?

A dehydrator is simply put an oven on a raw food diet. I like to call the dehydrator a 21st century oven.

Personally, I have no oven, stove or any kind of kitchen appliance for cooking food, since I chose to eat a raw food diet. In my stoveless kitchen, my trusty dehydrator takes on the main role to warm food while preserving its nutrients and freshness. All the methods I use to prepare raw, yet warm food are described in my e-book Raw, yet Warm.

Now, let we explore all the health-benefits of preparing food in a dehydrator vs. traditional oven:

  • Preservation of Nutrients

Dehydrators operate at lower temperatures, preserving more nutrients in fruits, vegetables, and herbs compared to ovens.

Thus, by eating just warmed, yet still raw food, you get the full nutritional profile of the foods you eat which of course boosts your health level.

  • Energy Efficiency

Dehydrators are designed for prolonged use, consuming less energy than ovens, making them cost-effective in the long run.

Saving money on daily activities such as food prep, goes a long way making your bank account happy.

  • Even Drying

Dehydrators ensure uniform drying, preventing overcooking or unevenness commonly associated with ovens.

Unlike with oven, you get to make dry ingredients or just warm raw foods effortlessly with the use a dehydrator.

  • Versatility

Dehydrators offer flexibility for various foods, accommodating intricate drying needs better than ovens.

With dehydrators, it is super easy to set the exact dehydrating temperature and time for various ingredients and purposes.

Elevate your culinary experience with a dehydrator – a health-conscious and efficient choice.
