Welcome To Making Raw Fun!
Here's your short and easy to read ezine full of raw food fun! Compliments of Raw Food Weight Loss Guide!

What A Great Idea
How do you get someone who knows nothing about raw food, or worse yet, scoffs at the whole idea, to gain a new respect for this way of eating? Number one: Take them to a raw food potluck. The wide array of yummy concoctions will likely delight them as much as the camaraderie and enthusiasm exhibited by other raw foodists. Number two: Take them to a raw food restaurant. Their food has got to be amazing to make it in that small of a business niche. Number three: flip through a raw food recipe book together, preferably one with great pictures of delicious looking food. Mouths will water, and eyes will open wide at the new realization that a raw food lifestyle is so much more than just apple slices and carrot sticks.

Fun In The Kitchen
Maybe it’s the way a clean diet cleans out your mind, but doesn’t it seem that the longer you are a raw foodist, the stronger your mental faculties grow and the more creative you become? When you break society’s rules of standard ways of eating, you start breaking them in your kitchen as well, letting your creativity run wild! Recipes become basic guidelines open to lots of spicy interpretation and saucy experimentation. Items that you would never have previously mixed together on a plate become amazing creations with the right seasonings. Even your kitchen implements start to take on new roles. Unplugged microwaves turn into pantries. Unused ovens become kitchen cupboards. And cold stovetops make great extended counter space. So break out of your old cooked kitchen rut – be bold, be crazy, be adventurous, and make raw FUN!
