I just got it in the mail today and there's an article on raw food. I haven't read it yet but I'm looking forward to reading it later.
Just wanted to share.

I read it. Meh, it's ok. I think they focused too much on HAVING to make these huge, complicated meals and lots of talk about sprouting and nuts. I don't sprout or eat nuts, so I wasn't too impressed. :rolleyes:
btw, it wasn't one of those 3 articles above, it was a different one.

The article was ok. He talked about the preparation of being raw and having to plan your meals ahead. But he also was using to gourmet raw cookbooks. He juiced alot which he enjoyed. He also had lots of interesting salads. He also said he threw out a couple dishes that didn't turn out well (I've done that too!). He made some complicated recipies that he loved.
And he talked about detox and having a major lower tummy cleansing. When he was going through that he decided to eat a cooked dinner. So he concluded his raw week with raw till dinner.
The conclusion was nice. Saying that he learned a lot, he has a new appreciation for raw foods and will continue it at some level.
Well, that was my take on the article. I might've missed bits and pieces. Anyone can fill in.
I wished he could've focused on the simplicity of raw! I mean you never have to prepare anything if your just eat the foods as they are.

YES, this seems to be the focus on all of the "raw" articles written by non-raw foodists, who try raw.
They seem to focus on the complicated gourmet recipes, instead of just grabbing a peach or banana, they don't mention the easy soups and smoothies much, but talk about all the dehydrating.
I just quit reading these things, as they -- as most articles -- really aren't accurate at all.
