Sorry it took me so long to see this post. A friend brought it to my attention.
I am delighted you like them so much. I taught a raw food prep class at my church last year and made a few dehydrated items to have as samples to try - the class went well, but all anyone wanted to talk about was those silly chews! I like them lemon ones too - have you tried those? They remind me a lot of lemon meringue pie, only better because there's no guilt! :D
I just added a chocolate pie recipe that's pretty darn good. When you feel like it, give it a try and let me know how you think! You could become my second test kitchen Jenn!
Again, so glad you like them. Enjoy!

i will for sure try out your chocolate pie! i'll let you know when i get around to it...
i probably will try the lemon chewies , not for myself but for my husband and my mom... my mom loves lemon tasting stuff. so far she has loved every cracker and dessert i made for her in the dehydrator. my hubby hasnt tried a single thing. but perhaps the fact that the lemon chewies taste like lemon meringue will get him to try as he is a fan of that.... there IS hope! :)

I'm curious if you've had a chance to try the lemon chews and even more curious to see what your husband thought. Also, did you ever try the pie. My children have become addicts! I guess it's not so bad. I mean, it could be something a lot worse, right? :o
Anyway, let me know when you have a chance.

Maraw, I just checked out your website...how wonderful! How long have you been raw? Is your whole family? Details.....?? Just to let you know, I would love to one day have a website to help people, and have classes to also help people. Just wondering I guess, how long I should be raw before I "teach" others. I would like to at least start a support group! Anyway, sorry to ramble, but I loved your site!

Thanks Wendi. I've had great fun putting it together. I've been raw for about a year now. I was never in really bad health to begin with, but I did have some weight that needed to come off and energy issues. My family is not all raw. We have 4 children, 6, 5, 3, and 2. The children are about 50% raw, and my sweet husband will eat just about anything I put in front of him - although he eats a mostly vegan diet, it's not 100% raw.
About 6 years ago I started searching out more information on diet, nutrition and it's link to disease and child development. After a few years, I felt like I had a lot of information to share. I started teaching raw food and nutrition classes last Fall - mostly about cooking, but there was also a good deal of general health information that we covered. I am attending Alissa's three-in-one cert class in New Hampshire in May and will be adding her spin to the classes then. I am also finishing up my B.S. degree in Nutrition (hopefully) this Fall. I have learned a great deal in school too. It all adds up to basically the same thing really: eating fresh, raw, (preferably organic) fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains is the easiest way to live a long, healthy life. The hard part is getting people to apply it to their already established way of eating. Alissa has done a great job of making this lifestyle accessible to the average person. I hope to have the same effect locally.
I think it's a great idea to start a support group in your area. You can offer potlucks and dessert tastings, speaker presentations, and when you feel ready, you can do some faw food prep demonstrations and classes. All the while learning more and doing more to help others help themselves. It's a great beginning to what you want to do.
Thanks again for the kind words.

Maraw, I noticed in your journal that you eat alot of raw granola. I would like to make some to carry in emergencies, and when we go camping. Where did you get your recipes? Would you mind sharing? thanks in advance.
