April in the Raw


Welcome to April in the Raw a month long event filled with raw inspired recipes from a group of incredibly talented bloggers! Each day of the month a different blogger will share a recipe on their site. To follow along check out the schedule below.


Why Raw?

Cooking largely depletes nutrients and creates free radicals. Free radicals cause diseases. Eating a healthy diet of raw foods and juices can reverse or stop the onslaught of chronic diseases like heart problems and cancer. Eating raw will fight against that common cough, cold and flu that you might suffer from when the seasons change. You may also see a remarkable improvement if you suffer from heartburn, gas, indigestion or constipation.

Raw foods are said to affect the the mind (memory and power of concentration) will be clear. Allowing you to be more alert, think sharper and more logically.

In a nut shell Raw Foods can Increase Energy, Give you Clearer Skin, Result in Weight Loss and Reduce Risk of Disease.

With the rate of cancer and other diseases including obesity at an all time high - I feel it is SO important that we all make a conscious effort to include more REAL living food into our diets.

Living on a 100% Raw Diet is not for me- However I believe that upping an intake of Fresh - Real- Living Foods is beneficial. Doing this can take a little creativity. Many of us run out of smoothie Idea's or can think of only so many ways to prepare a salad. Most of us know very little about how incredible Raw Desserts are- or how easy they can be to make.

This April in the Raw Event was created to offer you inspiration and idea's- to improve your diet. To show you that adding some raw elements into your diet can be fun and taste wonderful too.

I would also like to encourage and invite each of you to share your own recipes. A linky tool will be open - Link Up as many Recipes as you would like (Old and New) And PLEASE provide a link on your Website Mentioning April in the Raw. Additionally if you do not write a blog- Please feel free to share recipe(s) and or links to your favorite Raw Recipes in the comment box instead!
