It is great to see Lauren pursuing her dreams and putting herself out there, also the response has been amazing! I am also in love with the raw and health movement but on a lighter side, I have also done juice cleanses, was raw for about a year all due to an illness that almost took my life. However I am a woman of faith in God and He saved me! In the process I learned so much about health and nutrition, worked closely with a raw cheff and a Homeopathic doctor, nutritionist and master herbalist.
I need, want and desire to share my knowledge with others.
I am a latin girl and the latin community in my area is so clueless about real food. I am a teacher and I see what the kids bring for lunch and it is scary! It has diabetes writen all over it. I don't have a background in nutrition and don't have the financial means right now to jump full on back to school for such a long time. I also realize that us raw fans have a lot more information and knowledge than a lot of people out there even people with an extensive education.
I guess I need your moral support and advice: I am wanting to be an independent consultant to help people eat better, to have balance. Not everybody is ready to be totally raw and do fasts but people do need to learn the truth about food, have some guidance and I want and desire to be that source. I also would love to get paid to do something that I am passionate about.
My question is do I need a degree for this? do you guys know of anyone who is self taught and is out there teaching others? and your comments and ideas.
I also did the Landmark forum, in my small opinion it was fabulous, I love cafe gratitude and I love meet up! God is good all the time and all the time God is good!

Dear Lauren & Anyone else reading,
I am a passionate pursuer of health and optimal nutrition in myself. Currently I am, like you, also considering how I can use my passion to help others confused about what healthy nutrition is.
This is my ONE simple recommendation, read The 80/10/10 Diet
by Dr. Douglas Graham.
Also see his website for more info www.foodnsport.com
Personally after reading his book, and incorporating it into my life, I can't say there is much more to learn about optimal, ideal human nutrition. Its really that simple, in my experience, everything outside of 80/10/10's simple meals, simple fruits and veggies is ok, its tasty, but it slows me down! Anything too fatty or complicated combinations of foods simply does not get out of my way and let me perform as well as 80/10/10, and thats how I know it is the "real deal" so to speak.
Lauren, all the best to you, and I hope you turn on many wonderful souls to the light of eating well and letting the body heal itself!
Peace and love all,
Musician, Activist, Athlete
