Although not in winter yet, I know that for those of you reading who have just moved into autumn along with us Brits, and especially if you are new to raw foods, you are going to be asking yourself: “How on earth do I go or stay raw in winter?”.
In this article, I’ll be addressing a number of factors and my intention is that by the end of it, no matter where you are starting from, you’ll feel clued up about the approach you personally will be taking this winter so that you are at peace with your decision and can move into winter with a spring in your step rather than dragging your heels!
One of the most common questions I get asked, especially at this time of year, is “How do you stay raw in winter? I just can’t imagine not eating anything hot when it’s so cold. How can I do it?” Continue reading

When people first “go raw”, they often very quickly become curious about whether to buy a dehydrator, and when you think of the many possibilities they offer of creating raw alternatives to cooked foods, a dehydrator does seem to be an indispensable piece of equipment in a raw kitchen.

Isn’t it funny how those foods we crave when we feel down, upset or lonely are called “comfort foods”, when what they actually do in reality is only add to our discomfort?
How many people, do you think, are walking around today carrying an extra 5, 10, 15, 20 lb or more of “comfort” around their middle, hips or thighs? Can it really be that comfortable to be wearing our pain, now compounded into physical form as well, as if the emotional form was not already enough?!
Today we’re going to wake up and smell the coffee/bread/potatoes/cheese/chocolate for what they really are, but before we do that, let’s take a moment to look at why we feel we need comforting anyway. Continue reading
