My husband thinks it's weird that I started a blog. I think it's a little strange as well, but I also know how helpful other blogs were to me when I first became interested in the world of raw food. At that time raw food seemed intimidating and time consuming, but I was intrigued and I continued to read lots of books and blogs to learn more. The glowing testimonials from raw foodists were compelling, and so I started simply, with green smoothies and lots of veggies, fruits, nuts and raw almond butter. As a teacher, I had the summer to expand my experimentation, and I noticed myself taking pictures of the beautiful food I was eating. (Reason #714 why my husband thinks I'm weird.)
I started this blog as an assignment for a class. I chose raw food as a topic because a lot of people were asking me about my peculiar eating habits. I love to tell others that raw food doesn't have to be intimidating! I live in an Alaskan cabin with no running water, three hours away from a health food store, and yet I've found ways to eat high raw. With this blog, I want to share with others what I've learned. I think our planet would be a happier place if more people loved eating healthy, real food!
