“In my 40’s, I got my healthy grove back with a raw fruit and veggie-inspired life. After 2 years of a 70% raw food lifestyle, I lost 40 lbs. of toxins! I replaced my favorite comfort foods– macaroni and cheese and lifeless boiled greens– with healthy, tasty dishes that look, taste and feel like the “real” thing. The only thing missing are all those unnecessary fats and calories. Even my kids like raw foods!” – Carla (2013)
