“ I've been wanting to get in this group forever but my computer skills leave a lot to be desired but now I'm in whoo hoo. For those of you who don't know, I'm known as the krazy kracker lady and make the best raw food krackers around. I have 3 international selling books and my 2nd book has a foreword written by victoria boutenko. My latest book lip smackin favorites is off the hook, some absolutely fabulous recipes. Go to my website krazykrackerlady.com and you'll see why. I look forward to seeing and meeting more raw foodists in the bay area, I've been on this journey since 2000. ”

“ Ok, here is the recipe for the sweet nut butter dressing (that was near the spinach in an odd container with a black top): 4.75 oz raw nut butter (any kind--I used Sesame Tahini this time) .5 oz soy (I use Coconut Aminos instead--I discovered these at Rainbow--Raw, healthy, and tastes like soy!) 1.5 oz sweetener (you can use a combination of liquid or granular sweetners such as agave, honey, syrup, raw sugar, xylitol, or stevia in a lesser quantity if you like the taste--I only added a small amount of stevia to this recipe and used mostly xylitol with a little agave) 3.75 oz water Combine and refrigerate. Goes great with Spinach or mixed greens or works as a veggie dip. ”

“ I enjoy the chance to meet and share commonalities with raw foodists. I would love to see more organization. Of the three events Ive attended, they have started late and were disheveled. I often arrive a few minutes early and would like to be greeted warmly and have the space ready. Unfortunately I experienced tense exchanges between staff as well as toward a group member, and that makes for an unfriendly vibe. Mostly the people are friendly. I hope to come to more events to expand my connection to the community. ”

“ I love living in Thailand except paradoxically there are FEWER raw foodists in the tropics even though it's the ideal location for it. They actually cook fruit here sometimes *GASP* & the few people I've met that eat raw are also those not native to the area. Anyone seriously considering relocating to the tropics would benefit having a discussion with me. My thinking goes WAY beyond food. I strongly believe that natural living encompasses much more than what you put in your mouth (though this is your single most important action). A more holistic approach to life and health should be the order of day. I would like to clear up the many misconceptions & provide a model as to what it means to truly live naturally and harmoniously within the ecosystem. I'll be posting pics of my hand-painted love shirts soon, all donations/proceeds will fund my upcoming tour and additionally help the Sea Shepard Society whose work in Japan to stop whale massacre was interrupted by the recent tsunami. ”

“ A diverse and lovely group of people who share a love of delicious food and good health. It will add enjoyment, energy and well-being to your life. There are so many benefits, not the least of which is a dedicated, creative leader: Darcy Crosman, who keeps us all involved with MANY enjoyable and informative events. The raw and living food lifestyle is not a mainstream choice. Yet we are all so glad we have made that choice. It is so wonderful to be with an intelligent, interesting community of like-minded people who can support and inspire each other. ”
