I went raw for about 3 months about 2 and a half years ago. I am back I say for the rest of my eating life. I want the energy, healing, etc that comes with live food. I love to cook, I love to bake pies, bread etc. so I struggle with giving that up, it is a be part of who I am. This site is helpful and great for recipes. Thanks to all who created it and maintain it. Denise.
