A friend began the year with a raw food challenge – spending a month on a diet of uncooked, unrefined fare. I was enthralled with the process and wanted to know about recipes and food preparation and how the temporary change in lifestyle affected daily life. She graciously brought by some of the dishes she had made, and I shared a couple that I had tried out of interest.
