HI Karen -- I think you look amazing and your "grazing" meals as well as the intuition of eating greatly impact how and what we eat. You look awesome and the supposed "experts" dont really have a clue.. Im glad you may be able to COACH them in the future!

ON a side note, I just printed your raw food journal a few days ago, and when I started reading it, I couldnt put it down! I even was reading it during class(while still taking notes) and walking to the car. I clung to every page, identifying with all the moments. Now I cant wait to finish the other half that I forgot to print out!



Hi Karen,

You look amazing in that photo, very radiant and beautiful - you look the best out of the 4. I liked the fact that the article made raw food sound healthy and delicious and did not sound too "way out" or unattainable. The green juice sounds especially delicious - can you give us the recipe?

Kind regards



Karen - you have such a great looking website - full of great information and good looks, just like you! awesome!

From Karen: Paul Benhaim... where have you been hiding! Good to hear from you after all this time : )


Who made that green dress that you are wearing? I must have it! Catherine Malandrino? Who! Please help me! You look fantastic and I want that dress!!!!

From Karen: The dress is Alberta Ferretti with a price tag of c. £350! ($700). Not mine... but I did ask if we got to keep what we wore ; ) Alas, not.


Karen--I think the best thing about this article is you look way better, healthier, and *younger* than all the other women in this article. Comparing you with the 37-year-old women is a joke (she looks much more aged) and you look as young as the women in their twenties. You go girl!

What great press for the raw food movement!!


Can I just say that you look wonderful!

Thanks for posting it.

From Karen: Certainly you can say that : ) Can I also say that about you? haha Thanks for sharing it at WLIR!


Bought the paper especially to see my favourite 'Raw Foodist' and didn't you look great! Good article.


I really enjoyed reading that, you look fantastic in the photo. I am always amazed at top nutritionists not understanding the calcium and protein issue. What do they learn at college?
And whenever people say it is easier to be raw in the USA, well,I was in Northern California in June this year, and it snowed at night, it was colder than the UK! USA isn't all sunshine and orange groves Northern California has a climate similar to here ish).


This was an amazing piece. How great it is that more and more live/raw food is being recognized.
Congratulations for being included in the article. You are a great representative.

From Karen: Thank you, that is very sweet! We just all need to keep walking our truth; it's just a matter of time, consistency and a numbers game : )

I feel confident that the raw diet gives plenty enough calcium for our needs. Perhaps the nutritionist doesn't attach any credence to the research that says it's diets high in meat, fish, dairy and alcohol that predispose to osteoporosis (because they give our bodies too much phosphorus and when that happens our bodies leech calcium from the bones). I've heard that calcium 'requirements' were deliberately set high because of the nature of the standard Western diet!


Great job Karen! Don't be too hard on yourself as most of the others were told they weren't eating enough protein even with soya products, cheese, eggs, steak etc!! Funnily enough you were free of the health problems plaguing the others so I see that as a definite plus 1 for raw. Hey I think I might even start to keep a food diary online and then see if I really am missing nutrients. Because I've never felt better!

From Karen: Thanks David and good idea. Seems everyone is hung up on protein even though protein deficiency is practically unheard of! We need more raw blokes on the web : ) How about you contact "Men's Health"? I think they featured Chad Sarno once... Now there's a raw challenge!


I totally agree with your "corrections" but all in all this is wonderful news! And you look amazing! Well done for helping to make raw more mainstream! :oD

From Karen: Cheers Indie! May it make way for many others of a similar ilk : )


hi Karen,

I have been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now, signed up for your newsletter and listened to your podcast last night. WOW I am a fan!! Anyway you have been a real inspiration to me, I started going RAW only a short time ago and could really relate to the things you said about feeling a little "weird" sometimes. The thing is that every cell in my body says I am on the right way both spiritually and physically. Anyway I just wanted to say "Thanks". I will be back for your next post!


From Karen: Thank you Eve. I am very touched : )... And yes, feeling weird is "normal"; "normal" is weird!!!
