As you know, a few days ago I discussed the raw food diet. I’d like to thank you all for your support and comments surrounding this post, I really do appreciate it.
The raw food diet is definitely a much debated topic, and this morning I was reminded of this fact when I read a response to my article from Gena, who wrote a guest post over at Hangry Pants.
Gena is a high-raw vegan, and says her diet consists of mostly raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, and occasional sprouted grains. She also eats cooked and steamed root vegetables.
