Raw Foodist Nomi Shannon (part Ii): Starting A Raw Food Lifestyle. (by Nomi Shannon) From the article: "Most of us who are eating the standard American diet are addicted to the stuff they put in the food. It just tastes delicious.

Embracing A Diet In The Raw. (by Susan Chaityn Lebovits) From the article: "In their Weston home, Bellows and Fishman have built a space in which to teach classes on the principles of a raw food diet.

Fine & Raw Chocolate. (by Francoise Villeneuve) From the article: "Raw food tends to make me think of celery sticks and things with the word wheatgrass in the title.

As Raw Food Goes Commercial, Purists Cry Foul. (by Lessley Anderson) From the article: "...commercial success has led to a schism in the raw foods community. A school of purists thinks "gourmet" restaurants like Gratitude are seducing mainstream diners with secretly unhealthy food. ... These traditionalists eat very little refined oil, few processed foods, or things like nut pates (an avocado or the occasional handful of nuts is about as caloric as it gets)."
Woody Harrelson: What I've Learned - Esquire. (by Woody Harrelson) From the article: "The whole concept of the raw-food thing is, any food you heat over 118 degrees, you kill all the enzymes and most of the nutritional value of the food. The enzymes are as much or more important than the various nutritional things that are always getting all the good PR. But to eat only raw food, you've got to love a salad. You've got to just love a salad. "
