I think there should be more raw food shops, restaurants, stores, etc, to help people become more knowledgeable about raw food and maybe convert to rawfood. Wouldn’t it be great if we could convert America to raw food? And leave the SAD diet? I wonder how we could do this, set up more raw food exposure. Stores such as oneluckyduck, rawguru, and sunfood nutrition should sell there products at grocery stores like Whole Foods, Roots Market, etc. Sure, there’s Pure Food and Wine and other little shops, but wouldn’t it be nice to have as many raw restaurants or shops as there are Starbucks? (okay, maybe not that many). It would be lovely to have a raw country. I don’t know how we would set this up, does anybody agree with me or have any ideas? I mean, sure we can make fancy raw food dishes. But do we really have the time for all that, when we could go to a raw grocery store with section with a big nut milk fountain, or wonderful cakes and pies? We do have time to make raw food, but not as much time as a raw chef has, plus it’s extremely messy; cleaning the blender, dehydrator, etc. Does anybody agree with me or am I just being weird?
Hi Rawclaire,there is a book called Healthy Highways(the traveler’s guide to healthy eating) by Nikki & David Goldbeck.Very interesting,and you will find many restaurants,markets and natural,organic and raw places to go in US.
There is absolutely nothing in the Syracuse, NY area or anywhere in NY other than one deli in Woodstock and the rest in NYC (about 5 hours away).... i wish someone in upstate NY would open a raw or atleast a vegan restaurant!!! Very annoying! I wish i had the money to do it!
rawclaire i totally agree. i would love nothing more than for many more americans to leave the sad diet but most people…including my entire family are too stuck in there ways and ignorant. they think i’m really weird. why? because i eat food god put on this earth? who’s weird?
Seaturtle – Totally, why are people frying all their food in greasy oil and killing animals just so WE can eat them? People are not intended to eat other animals, it’s not only cruel, but really bad for you. Maybe someday people will understand that they can’t eat all this junk. They should remember their Homo sapien ancestors who ate nuts, berries, seeds, and I guess raw meat. At least the meat was raw. Shrugs I blame it on the discovery of fire, and everybody’s poor judgement.
That’s unfortunate about your family. Have they ever read any raw food books, like Raw Food Real World? Maybe if they read something they would begin to understand a little. Yes, I agree, WE are not weird, everybody who eats SAD food is weird.
