  1. I've looked through your site and as nice as it is, I have a question to ask. What's this "raw" I keep hearing? Is it something like vegetarianism?

    ...And Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you too, Ms. Chocolate.

  2. Hi K.Michel! Thanks for checking my site out and for the follow. A "raw food" diet consists of plant-based foods in their original, un-heated (uncooked) state are considered raw and alive. Also raw vegan foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius) are still considered raw or living. "Raw foodists" believe that foods cooked above this temperature have lost their enzymes and thus a significant amount of their nutritional value and are harmful to the body, whereas uncooked foods provide living enzymes and proper nutrition.Raw food may include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, grains and legumes in sprouted form, seaweed, microalgae (such as spirulina and chlorella, etc.), and fresh juices. These live foods (living foods) contain a wide range of vital life force nutrients (ie. vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen) and live enzymes. Their nutritional properties are essential to the proper maintenance of human bodily functions.

    "Raw-foodists" (also called "Rawists") are those who thrive on live food energy. Raw foodists consume a diet of mostly un-cooked whole plant foods, usually at least 75%, though some say 100% is the only true path. I am not one of those. My goal is to have around a 70% raw vegan diet.

    Hope this answers your questions. I hope that you have a wonderful Memorial Day.
