When fellow raw vegan lifestyle advocate Kristen agreed to answer some of my questions about food and a raw vegan lifestyle, I was thrilled!
Kristen is a delightful, energetic lady who takes her health seriously. She is based in Scottsdale, Arizona and has an impressive list of accomplishments and contributions to the raw community. She is a raw vegan chef and consultant, food writer, author of raw vegan recipe and lifestyle ebooks, runs a popular blog, and has a website where you can find out about upcoming classes and more.
I extend a warm welcome to Kristen, as first guest for “People”. She shares with us some fun information about herself, her thoughts on embracing a raw vegan lifestyle and one of her fantastic recipes.
Enjoy the Interview…
Q: What lead you into the world of raw food or when did you first discover raw food?
Q: What do you find is the biggest benefit of embracing a raw vegan lifestyle?
Q: What do you love most about it?
Q: What are you most proud of as a raw vegan foodist?
When someone turns to raw, it usually means they’ve done a lot of research about the lifestyle because it’s not immediately recognized in the media or medical circles much, or even well known for that matter. That means that I’m very informed, and that is something of which to be extremely proud.
Q: Funniest/Worst Un-cooking Disaster(s)?
Q: What fruits or vegetables are your favorites?
So, based on pure enjoyment and bliss only, and not necessarily from nutritional value (or you’d see lots of greens in this list like kale, broccoli, etc) although these picks are filled with nutrition, the fruits and veggies that I really love and could eat day after day without tiring of them would be: watermelon, papaya, cucumbers, bananas, avocado, carrots, coconut, green beans, peaches, sugar snap peas, and sprouts.
Q: Are there any fruits or vegetables you’d be happy to do without?
