International Raw Food Day! I think this is my 3rd year participating in my own way. But I have been following Karen Knowler for about 5 years and LOVE her website and recipe ideas! Because today is International Raw Food Day it inspired me to do a Random Thursday 3. Today it will be Raw Foods Related! 3 things I would like to 'point out' aren't 'things' at all but rather PEOPLE. People in the health foods and/or raw foods movement that I have researched and learned from the last couple of years.
The first one being David Wolfe. I don't know if I agree with everything he does but then again I don't think I necessarily agree with EVERYTHING that any one person has to say anyway - that's the beauty of being different. But I have learned some great things thru his websites and interviews. I'm also interested in learning more about his non-profit Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.
The 2nd person on my list is Cherie Soria from Living Light. She was also a co-writer on the Raw Foods For Dummies Book. I've know of her for a few years and am interested in learning even more. I think I might look into more of her videos very soon! I know a few blogging buddies of mine have actually MET her and really LOVED her energy!
And I mentioned her above, but really this day, wouldn't have been possible without all of the organization, knowledge, and networking set by Karen. What a remarkable lady. Thank you for International Raw Food Day! I hope you guys have some time to hop over to these websites today and find things of interest! I, for one, will be enjoying my MANY free eBooks that I received for signing up for the event today.
Another thing I wanted to share with you was my "Buying Bulk" Success from the other day! Keep in mind...I ONLY spent a grand total of $3.49!!!!! YES! UNDER $3.50 for the following:
Garlic Powder (37 cents)
Organic Cumin (41 cents)
Fennel Seeds (34 cents)
Organic Yellow Mustard (34 cents)
Organic Curry (48 cents)
Red Lentils ($1.39)
I was VERY pleased with this! To get all of this even at a "Dollar Store" would be a minimum of $6 and the quality would be 'lack there of'. I've said it once and I'll say it again...I LOVE BUYING BULK!
