I'll be dining at Almond Blossom Cafe this weekend. Live music will be there as well!

David recommended The Grass Roots Restaurant in Tampa. They have a good blog. Sabrina Aird is the co-founder and is passionate about raw food.

David also recommended The Almond Blossom Cafe in Flagler Beach, FL. Nothing but good comments on the site!

Here's another book recommended by David Beasley: Raw Food/Real World: 100 Recipes to Get the Glow.

Hey! David Beasley recommended this book called Raw: The Uncook Book: New Vegetarian Food for Life by Juliano. I'm checking it out today. There's a website, too. Look in the Reading List on the right hand side of the page....stay tuned!

From Wikipedia:

Common beliefs held by raw foodists:

* Raw foods contain enzymes which aid digestion, meaning that the body's own enzymes may work unimpeded in regulating the body's metabolic processes, and heating food above 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit degrades or destroys these enzymes in food.

* Eating food without enzymes makes digestion more difficult, which could lead to toxicity in the body and cause excess consumption of food, obesity and chronic disease.

* Raw foods contain bacteria and other micro-organisms that affect the immune system and digestion by populating the digestive tract with gut flora.

* Raw foods have higher nutrient values than foods which have been cooked.

* Wild foods, particularly edible wild plants, are the most nutritious raw foods.[7][8]

* Freezing food is acceptable, even though freezing lowers enzyme activity.

Stay tuned...you see the picture here of Zoobird Bruce? He's featured in an upcoming 3-part mini documentary on healing with raw foods...

By the way, Dave ... You mentioned mixing kale and greens with fruit. That's why I started the Zoobird Juice Lovers. I'm hoping for some creative ideas like that. Now, if I can just find a Champion Juicer for cheap! Should have nabbed Sh'mal's while he was trying to pare down the load for the van.

Ah! You makin' me happy! That's what I was looking for here and I didn't even know it. Thanks. In fact, I was just talking crazily today about doing some mini-traithalon in St Pete Aug 2 and that would be just the treat afterwards, assuming I live.

Other good raw food cook books include "RAW, the Uncook Book" by Juliano and "Raw Food, Real World" by Matthew Kenney and Sarma Melngailis. I have tried the raw/vegan restaurant in Tampa called "Grassroots". It was amazing food. The Almond Blossom Cafe at Flagler Beach is good as well.
