Hi Karen, this Raw food business it's all new to me, I heard of it when I was on a cruise lately. I am very tempted by the idea. I am overweight and in bad health, I always ate lots of meat, lots of stews, cooked food has been my life, now I know I have to make changes or I'll be digging my grave with my own teeth! I've made the decision to give it a go and endeavour to stick to it, but a few questions remain unanswered, such as: Where can I find a complete list of "allowed" food? Does it have to be "organic" or can I start with just supermarket fruit and vegies? Doesn't dry food means dead food? These questions might sound dumb, but like I said I don't know much about "raw food", I would appreciate being pointed to the right direction. Thank you, Yves.

Karen, What a great post. I particularly love the section on raw food diet, because, I too, feel like it is almost a stigma that I must correct people that a raw food diet doesn't always entail 100% raw foods. Also, this may also, steer a lot of people away which is a shame. As well, loved you last point - also wrote an article on this exact topic a couple weeks ago for looking for more discussion:
Great post! Thank you,
