The Rawtarian

Making the decision to eat a raw food diet is not an easy one. You have to first mentally take the steps to go vegetarian, then vegan, then gluten-free, and then basically give up ever eating hot food again. Eating out with friends will forever be harder. Guys, it's a serious commitment, with lots of sacrifices, and not one that just anyone can handle. But for those who can hack it, we've found recipes that make the decision a whole lot easier.

Just because you've gone raw doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to bread, pastas or ranch dressing -- you just have to change your perspective on what those foods are. With the right recipes in hand, you can recreate most of your favorite foods without ever having to turn on the stove again.
