I would also thoroughly recommend these raw forums to anyone with general questions, one of the oldest and largest on the net http://www.rawfoodsupport.com/

Hi everyone. Just want to pop in and say hi ;)
I've been a raw foodist for around 3 years now, and transitioning for a few years before that. I've learned alot over that time. I now understand that although a raw diet is alot healthier than a normal diet, it is still quite open to variation, and typically isn't sufficient for optimum health.

I would recommend for anyone who is interested in raw food as a means to being truely healthy, to investigate the practices and wisdom of the Hippocrates Health Institute in the states.

They have over 30 years of experience in correcting every illness known about, and achieving excellent health in over a hundred thousand people using wholistic methods ( treating the whole person rather than just the symptom ), raw foods and lifestyle.

Hi! I've been experimenting with green smoothies and raw food for a couple of months now and feel great.
A book that I would highly recommend is called 'Green for Life' by Victoria Boutenko. It's not really about raw food, more about green smoothies, but Victoria and her family have been raw foodies for years. I think green smoothies are an excellent way to start going raw because they are a) really yummy b) stupidly good for you c)100% raw d) easy to make (as long as you have a blender) and e) once you have one a day for a while you naturally feel more inclined to eat raw foods anyway (that's what I found as did many other people mentioned in the testimonials). Everyone loves them (my dad is addicted to them and he is a typical 'meat, potato and 2 veg' kind of guy who wont even eat pasta or rice or anything 'not British'). My 11 month old adores them too.
For raw recipes I purchased 2 books - one called Raw Magic by Kate Magic Wood which is very good but does have a lot of superfoods in the recipes which can be quite expensive and another by Shazzie called Evie's Kitchen. She wrote it for mums who want to feed there kids raw (these were the recipes she fed her daughter, Evie, for the first few years) but why feed them only to kids - the recipes are yum!!!! I made a raw choc strawberry torte yesterday which was sooooo delicious and because it's so healthy I finished it off for breakfast :) I also made nut burgers for lunch which were great too. A great fun book to bring out the child like spirit in you :)
Sorry for the essay but I just have to add that raw chocolate is such a good superfood and is so yummy it's definitely a good way to increase the raw in your diet!

Hi there - I've been raw for coming up six years - after working on it for about 20!
There is certainly more info out there now than in pre-internet times.
Some authors I've found helpful are Ann Wigmore, Viktoras Kulvinskas, Leslie Kenton, David Wolfe. On the net, I've found Storm & Jinjee Talifero's thegardendietforum very helpful.
