Try it!

All I have to say is that if you haven't tried going raw then I highly suggest you try doing it. At least give it a week long trial period; you will notice a difference. I look so much healthier than I used to look and I feel like I have unlimited energy.

Yesterday I had some warm water with lemon when I woke up. About 30 minutes later I made myself some apple carrot juice. I took two apples and some raw almonds in to work to have later on in the day. John brought me a huge case of organic apples (I think there were 88 in there), so I am making my way through them. I made some raw hummus and cut up some carrots for dinner. Also enjoyed some fresh cantalope and a piece of this raw evolution brownie that I am now obsessed with. I ordered them online and now can't find the website... and I already threw out the wrappers (since I finished them up so quickly). Oh vey. I'll have to do some searching.

Oh, I just got my Excalibur food dehydrator in the mail. I have to admit that I haven't even taken it out of the box yet, but I've been so busy at work. I think that I am going to try to make some flax crackers this weekend. Oh, and I came across this recipe for a raw vegan chocolate cake.
Grind 1 cup raw almonds (do not soak). Keep grinding until gets doughy from the oils that are being released.
Add 2 tablespoons raw carob powder
Add 1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey
Continue to blend for 1 minute
Use a spatula to remove from blender and roll mixture into balls or form into a piece of cake.
I'm going to try this recipe out this weekend also. I'll let you know how it turns out... I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
