Top 10 Raw Foods *YOU* Chose to Live On For 30 Days... ;)

WOW, last month's RawReform Giveaway was the biggest YET, with a huuuuuuuuuge response to win a free copy of the lovely Jenna Norwood's DVD, "Supercharge Me"...We asked you to send in your answer to the question: "If you were to live on just one raw food for 30 days,
which food would you choose and why...?" and I am delighted to say that the winner, drawn at random today, is Sarah Fabry, who sent in the following response:

"If I could have only ONE raw food for 30 days it would be...


I Loooove them.  They are so versatile - I can juice them (with a little knuckle of ginger), then use the pulp in the dehydrator to make carrot crackers.  The pulp is also wonderful in raw carrot cakes.  I slice them into skinny sticks, or nibble them whole, and try to get to the paler orange "icicle" inside.  I slice them into chips, dust with celtic sea salt and dehydrate them to make "car-ackers". I spiralize them for noooodles, or shave them with the vegetable peeler for fettuccini. Grated? Yup. You can even glide a fork down the sides of a big carrot, them slice into circles, and you get little carrot flowers.  Vitamin A powerhouses!  They give my skin a sunny tinge.  What more could I ask for?  Carrots have been very good to me, and I am good to them.  The green frilly tops go into the juicer too (just not the "nub" at the top where the enzyme inhibitor live) and give me a ZIP!  Carrots are my friends, and if I needed them, they'd be there for me.

Angela, sparkle on!  I love you!
