...want to try going raw for a bit. So far there are only two of them. They thought this up themselves, which I think is great.
They are going to go raw for 3 days and then the week after they will be raw for the whole week.
What kind of information should I pass onto them? Any words of encouragement? Some good raw recipe sites would really help them out.
I don't think they should be taking a break inbetween the two sessions, but they seem to have it all figured out already.

...hmmm. well, it might be good for them to "take a break" in between. They may notice differences in how they feel cooked and raw. I know of one friend that was able to tell the diff right away, and that helped her "understand" more in addition to reading lots of info. For some, experience is the best teacher...at least in the beginning. But, for some of what I do...
I always send peeps to Alissa's site (and this forum) first, then Shazzie's site, and then Storm and Jinjee's site. In addition to those, I also link them to bits of info in reference to other health thingies I've found helpful to me.
Oh, if you don't have Shazzie's link: click HERE (http://shazzie.com/)
And for Storm and Jinjee's link: click HERE (http://thegardendiet.com/)
And now I'll be sending peeps to The Green Chefs/Deliciously Raw for more recipes and tips...Alissa's on there too. The videos, I think, are great for people that know a lot or are just starting out. Link is HERE (http://greenchefs.tv/deliciouslyraw/)
I basically tell everyone that's asks me about stuff not to "stress"...it can be overwhelming for some peeps when it comes to learning new things, but then there are those that are ready to jump right in. I tell em all I know, and warn them to tell me when it's too much info. For friends that live close by, I may even make em some stuff to try out, and I always give out fun and easy recipes. Mostly to help switch out some of what they normally use, like Alissa's Mock Salmon Pate on a sandwich or with crackers instead of their usual (cooked) food choices. They ususally end up wanting to add more "live" things like that into their existing lifestyle. That friend of mine that I had just mentioned, she is realizing how "easy" things really are...and that's great. When they are ready, more things will fit into place for them. Plus, the old saying goes about being an example...or whatever you want to call that ;) It really is amazing how much the people around you pick up on what you do.
Now, in all that blah-blah-blah, I hope some of it is helpful!

They are lucky to have your support.
This my be a no brainer but could you encourage them to get Alissas Book/DVD if they do not already have it? :p
