View Full Version : Who lives in Colorado??
03-30-2006, 04:56 PM
Hey everyone, at the risk of this beng in the wrong forum and/or sounding naive' I was wondering if any of you who live in Colorado might be able to help me to find different spots in your state that might appeal to a wannabe like me besides the usual Wild Oats, Vitamin cottage and such as I go forward in my quest to be (maybe) the only raw Wyomingite. Also, are there any clubs, groups, classes that I may be able to come down once in a while and be a part of? Sorry if this is goofy or in the wrong spot, it's just that I'd like to meet a raw foodist or two somewhere other than in a book or the internet.
Peace and Blessings

I live in beautiful, amazing Colorado!! Specifically, I live in Westminster which is about 12 mi south of Boulder. There are several groups in Boulder for raw foods. We love raw food potlucks once a month. Also, at the Boulder Co-op they are adding even more raw events all the time! Here is the link. We went to one the weekend before last, it was great! The Co-op is adding more raw foods to their cafe menu and also selling raw foods in the store.
Also, here is the link that talks about the RawFest that they had the weekend before last. I'm sure they will have more soon.
I had a raw "oreo" from the cafe. It was very good.. mmm!! Uhmm actually I had two.... didn't really share them either.. mostly ate them myself...
A while ago, my husband and I took a trip looking for some alternative energy festival that was supposed to be going on near Ft. Collins. Well, needless to say we did NOT find it but instead we found Wyoming!! haha... we had never been there before, so it was interesting :D

Awesome!! I gotta get my wife and best friend down there (me too) for one of these pot lucks. We have about 6 feet of organic produce available to us here at the Safeway on the east side of town, and that's about it. Man, we don't even have a stinkin' salad bar here. Would it be considered rude if we didn't bring a dish? Is there anything else we could bring to contribute? I think I could make some headway once we all get a chance to eat something other than just plain fruits/veggies and nuts. Thanks for the links!!

I can let you know when the next raw potluck is. I think you are supposed to bring a dish for 8-10 people. I think the best way to find out is to contact them directly... I don't have the email on me at the moment for the group that does the potlucks. You can bring an easy dish, like a nut torte (ingredients would include dates, raisins, nuts and a little lemon juice, process in food processor) that would always be a great hit. You could also make a raw pudding. It doesn't have to be too complicated or exotic, as long as it tastes good and is raw!
For the Rawfest that was held at the Boulder co-op, you didn't have to bring a dish to attend. They did have a potluck though, where you needed to bring a dish for 10 people. They also had a raw dessert contest.

Where are you at in Colorado? I'm in Colorado Springs. We have a raw group here also. It has really helped me in my progress. Plus I have made some really good friends from the group.

Originally from Denver
Wild Oats head quarters isin colorado, so I guess they run the market out there.
Try meetup.com , search for raw groups in CO or start your own. There may also be some veggieor alternative health groups a the site in your area with like minded folks that know of more CO resources.

i am in fort collins. i moderate a yahoo group called coloradorawmoms you dont have to be a mom to join though. i try to post about raw lucks there. if you are interested search yahoo groups for either coloradorawmoms or coloradorawveganmoms can not remember which for sure it is under or send a blank email to email@example.com that should get you a request to be let in. i am trying to get a potluck going on may 18th in the evening if you are interested in coming let me know. you should bring some kind of raw dish to serve 8 to 10 people. if you join the group that is probably the easiest way to stay in touch or PM here.
