How We Look At Food

It's funny because the other day I was super super tempted by pizza. I went to eat with my wife at a local pizza place and I ate a salad but the smells were so good. The garlic bread looked incredible. To tell you the truth I really struggled. But I had a salad and I had had a giant smoothie right before that too. One of the strategies I lay out in a post called Raw Food Tips.

For me it helps to educate myself to the enth degree. This way I know when the cravings hit, what is actually going on inside my body if I eat these foods. Also it helps to realize that that stuff, pizza, bread etc, isn't really food. It's called food but it's not actually anything but something that is edible and it can in no way nourish you. So that helps to really get educated and to look at food differently. Food is something that is digestible and something that can actually nourish you. Bread and pasta, those are not foods.

Another thing I thought about is that with education comes anguish. It's a two way street. I mean how do you sit there at a restaurant and watch people eat “food” that is giving them cancer and be okay with that? But my goal is to not care at all about that anymore and make every time I eat an enjoyable experience. Make it fun, no matter what is being eaten. It's not all about food people! I forget that all the time. Some people make it to their 90's and beyond, eating dead denatured "death food." So maybe we should all just take it easy, have more fun, do what we do (eat more living foods) and let the chips fall where they may.

Home Page

This is a site about raw food. I started being interested in the raw food diet in 2003 when I read a book called Fit for Life.Ever since then I have been moving more and more into the raw food path. I have listened to probably over 1,000 hours of lectures and seminars and have read dozens of books on the subject. I have been saturating myself in this information for the past 5 years as well as living it. I created this site to answer your questions and help other people who have and are going through the process of trying to improve their health. I try to answer all questions and provide useful and original content and articles that you can use in your life.

The site is constantly growing and evolving as we do. It started out as a way to talk about certain issues living the raw foods lifestyle. But as time goes on it's becoming a tool for me as I hope as it is for you. There are certain areas I am interested in studying and I'll be including them in as my posts. I hope you find them as interesting as I do.

My goal is to help you so that you can be ahead of the curve on your path to raw foods. So many times one little piece of information can literally change everything. It is my goal to provide insightful content so you can have success in living the raw food lifestyle.
