A rich raw treat can satisfy your cravings, without filling your body with toxic waste.

The raw food revolution is gaining popularity, and I’m glad because we are learning to incorporate delicious raw meals into our diets that don’t leave us hungry for burgers and fries.

If you’re strapped for time and cash (who isn’t these days), but you’d still like to eat organic and support your local farmers, check out farm-share opportunities near you.
