Raw Food Diet

I recently discovered a few raw food restaurants in Los Angeles that are really great. They make desserts, pizzas, and everything else in between for people who want a healthy satisfying lifestyle. I found that many of the people who followed the raw food movement had less colds and more energy. I found a site that had so much information, I had to share it with you.

Here is some basic information from her site. Alissa Cohen has a cookbook and DVD on the raw food movement. Check it out for yourself. What do you think?

What is Raw & Living Food?

Raw and Living foods are uncooked, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouted grains. These raw foods can be eaten whole or combined to make the healthiest, most delicious meals.

Sound boring? NO Way!!! Imagine eating burgers, pizza, pasta, cookies, cakes and pies everyday. Imagine never having to count calories, proteins, fats or carbs! You won't have to weigh or measure your food. The raw and living food diet is about eating whatever you want, whenever you want! You can lose weight, heal your body, increase your energy, look and feel younger, not in years, not in months but within days! If this sounds good to you, click here to start living on live food!
