View Full Version : Making a living with Raw Food?
02-13-2007, 10:29 AM
I was wondering if other people here are making a living with raw food.
I'd love to spend my days in some way relating to raw food.
Does anyone care to share their occupation and if it relates to this kind of living?
As for me, I am a student in a master's of public health program and was working for an association until recently. By the way - I'm also searching for a special project (thesis) topic and would be interested if anyone had any ideas. Since my degree is specifically in environmental and occupational health, it has to relate to that - not nutrition unfortunately. I'm kinda thinking of studying how toxic pesticides are to people, especially children.
Thanks all. Everyone here seems so 'englightened'!

I am currently waiting tables at a fine dining restaurant that serves absolutly delicious desserts and entrees. I only know because I worked there 10 years ago before I went raw. Its been a real killer.
What I want to do is someday open a small cafe that sells vegan, vegetarian and raw food choices. Then after a couple years and I get bored, I will sell it.

I am a healer. I use many different ways to help people heal their bodies. I do include the raw food philosophy in addition to many other things. I believe in personal responsibility when it comes to diseases and other problems with our physical, emotional and spiritual selves, so the first step is always to look at individual habits and things that we put on ourselves when helping someone (this was very difficult to get across to myself) :). Anyways, that's my 2 1/2 cents worth.

I am working on a raw food career (that also includes healing-I am an acupuncturist as well but plan to expand my 'healing' skills as well).
The raw food component is evolving all the time but did not really pick up until I made a 100% commitment to it.
Since I have, I have been GETTING calls and emails about my raw food classes, consultations and lectures. I am very excited!
So appreciative and grateful to Alissa for paving the way and being a pioneer!
Good luck and GO FOR IT!

I live in Washington state ~ N.E. Washington near Spokane ~ Christa, open here PLEASE!! :D I do know there are a lot of people into "healthy" eating (for lack of a better word) ~ like whole grains and tofu and organic, stuff like that but I've only met one other raw foodist here. There was a small restraunt in Spokane that served the foods of the "Hallelujah Diet" and they were opened about 1 year and then closed. Of course there are SOOO many restraunts here ~ Spokane is in the Guiness Book of World Records for the most restraunts on one street (Division). There is a restraunt downtown called "Raw" but it is sushi. Not sure about the Seattle area, I know there are a LOT of people but don't know their eating habits. But I would certainly come to your restraunt. My hubby would LOVE to own his own restraunt but he is NOT raw so I don't think he'd be a good partner. :D Business partner in a raw restraunt, I mean! :D
