Hi - I'm new to the whole Raw concept. Can anyone tell me where to find the basic 'rules' of the 30 Day Challenge? Thanks

Do you have Alissa's book? It is really explained thoroughly in there. If not, basically - eat all raw for 30 days. Nothing cooked, processed, or altered in any way. That's pretty much it.

Basically, Alissa started the 30-day raw challenge to encourage people to give the raw and living foods "diet" a chance - just for 30 days, to see how it impacts their lives. As Lucy said, eat raw plant foods (fruit, veggies, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains either in whole form or combined to make delicious recipes)
So, you make a committment, for only 30-days, to see how your health, weight, energy levels, etc. improve or just how good you feel and decide from there if you want this to become a permanent lifestyle change or not. The blogging area is to journal and document what you eat each day, how you feel and then at the end, you can see what changes have taken place from the start to the end of the 30 days. It is also recommended that you take a before picture and then an after picture to see differences in size, fullness of the face, brightness of the eyes, etc.
But I agree with Lucy, if you don't already have it, I highly recommend getting Alissa's book if you don't have it as it has a LOT of information (not just recipes, although there are over 200 of them) on getting started and how to maintain the raw life. Plus, it has been said that it takes 30 days to establish a habit, so...
A quote from her book:
100% For 30 Days
"Again, you're not like everybody else, and so you may very well experience different changes in your body at times different from other people. This is why I ask you: please make a 30-day commitment to follow this diet 100%. By the end of 30 days, you will have experienced significant - if not life-changing results!"
