Why Raw Food?

Raw food is still full of nutrients and enzymes.

Have you ever fasted? If so, what kind of fast? How often?

I've done a 10 day water fast, about 6 years ago. I did a 30 day juice fast last summer. I've done several 3 day juice fasts and try to fast one day (24 hours) on water per week.

What do you believe are the miracles of raw food? What is your favorite raw food dish?

The human body is intelligent and is inherently capable of functioning properly (no disease) given the proper tools. Raw and living foods are part of that. Love raw Pad Thai.

How do you think peace in the world is affected by health and well being?

There is an undeniable and power mind/body connection. If our bodies are not healthy, our minds are not healthy and we cannot function happily as individuals or as a society. I also believe that an animal that lived an unhealthy and unhappy life, and who dies a cruel and violent death, that negative energy is absorbed by the flesh and those who eat it.

Introduction

Hi my name is Karen. I've been a strict vegetarian for about 10 years now. I will eat dairy if I know it came from a humane and healthy source. I was an intern at CHI in Union City MI for 90 days where I was introduced to raw food.
