Passport Wellness: Go Raw! Michelle Spends a Weekend at the Raw Food Institute's Boot Camp!

Passport Wellness: Go Raw! Michelle Spends a Weekend at the Raw Food Institute's Boot Camp!
BY MICHELLE JERSON
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

When I say I love to eat raw food, what’s the first thing you think of? When I did a features piece on raw food restaurants a few years ago, responses included everything from raw hamburger meat to bugs that are eaten on the show “Fear Factor. “ Well it couldn’t be further from the truth. Since I did the story six years ago, the raw food diet has gained some additional recognition and more raw food restaurants and juice bars are popping up, but still there are many people not familiar with the whole way of eating.

I feel people are missing out tremendously on what is probably the most nutritious way of eating for optimum health. I have known about the raw food lifestyle for awhile and whenever I met someone who told me they had a dehydrator or a vitamix, I would get super excited, but also jealous that I did not have one and I wasn’t preparing delicious raw food desserts and entrees like they were. I do now have a vitamix, and love it! Therefore, when I saw the email in my inbox advertising the Raw Food bootcamp weekend in DC, I canceled all my weekend plans and knew I had to go.
