I really enjoyed watching these two young men try living the raw living foods lifestyle for 30 days. It is a shame that they concentrated on so many salads and didn't have the chance to experience truly gourmet raw recipes also. I think they would have been blown away by the possibilities had they been exposed to more raw desserts, green juices, sprouts, and fun, gourmet raw food dishes. (Maybe they did have all of these things, I don't really know). But I know for me, when I began creating dishes like these below I was in love with this lifestyle and knew that I didn't ever want to look back.

It looked like they went to a few raw potlucks but it would have been great if they could have had time to prepare dishes, experiment with the dehydrator and really explore all that raw has to offer. People think that raw foodies are limited, but in actuality it is just the opposite. I think people on the SAD diet are limited. But that's just me.

They are really good and if you have ever considered trying raw this is a great way to get you motivated, if these two guys can do it, anyone can!! The first step is to give it a try by simply increasing the amount of fresh, ripe fruits and vegetables in your diet and the rest will fall into place if you are truly commited to this idea. I still am taking baby steps in some regards and that is what works for me. Knowing my limits and making each and everyday a new learning experience. I love learning and am grateful to all of the people who so generously share their ideas, thoughts, recipes and encouragement to all of us out in "raw blog land". Here are the videos.
