I just wanted to say hi! I've been learning about raw foods for years, and finally made the full commitment this year and am LOVING it. I have great energy and crave live foods. It took giving myself the time to relearn how to prepare foods from whole new paradigm and learn to create awesome recipes with the dehydrator. Once I learned how to make crackers, kale chips, and raw chocolate then we were totally satisfied with our salads and smoothies and not needing cooked foods anymore.
I'm so crazy about raw foods I've created a blog to share my recipes and inspirations. Check it out at: www.rawvortex.com 
I've appreciated the recipes and ideas here on Gone Raw while I've been researching raw foods and making the transition.
Be Well, Kara
