Raw Food ... Wooohoooo

How lucky am I?!!  I saw my beautiful friend Giuli a few days ago, and I was telling her about how I'm eating a mostly-raw diet (if you recall, I started this after I read Crazy, Sexy Diet by Kris Carr).  She informs me that her cousin is doing a raw food seminar in my area this week.  It turns out, her cousin is this beautiful lady, Gabriella Dalmolin, who blogs about raw food in her blog, Mind, Body, Soul ... and Food ( and does seminars in Northern Virginia teaching people how to prepare raw food.
I learned so much from her, and she is such a fun, happy person.  Her enthusiasm is contagious.  Can't you tell just by looking at her?
The book she shared with us today is Living Raw Food: Get the Glow with More Recipes from Pure Food and Wine by Sarma Melngailis.  I'm going to pick a copy up today.
When I started this way of eating, I was a little concerned I would be eating boring salad all the time.  I am really surprised by the amazing raw food recipes I have discovered already.  It's all so good and easy.  I spend a little more time prepping my veggies and meals, but I hardly spend any time actually cooking.

Thanks for all the great info, Gabriella!  You're amazing.

I will have to check out her blog. I try to do at least 50 percent raw. It keeps down the inflammation and inflammation is the root cause of all disease. I have never considered going totally raw? I have to read more.

Glad to hear you are feeling so good. I try to eat at least 50 percent raw. It keeps down inflammation. Inflammation is the root cause of all disease. I will have to check out her blog. It sounds interesting.
