I have started eating raw food 10 years ago. Now, it is a daily part of my diet and at least 2 meals are made of raw food. I have much more energy now.

Erika May 15, 2013 at 4:34 pm

I have been eating whole unprocessed foods for a while and am slowly transitioning into raw foods which makes up close to half of my overall diet. Thank you for the opportunity!

Dee May 15, 2013 at 5:02 pm

I have been eating raw for 2 years and it has changed my life. I eat 90% raw because it gives me more energy than my children even though I am over 40. Raw food tastes as fresh as alive as I feel!

Danielle May 15, 2013 at 5:13 pm

I eat healthy because it makes me feel good. Also because I am on my way to becoming a dietitian…one month till graduation! I typically eat raw-ish until dinner time. Starting a cleanse on Monday, so I expect raw meals to increase!

Sharyn May 15, 2013 at 5:32 pm

I have only just started to eat raw! Your site is helping me to become more adventurous, Thank you!

Kim May 15, 2013 at 5:46 pm

This looks wonderful. I have gone to living light culinary institute to learn raw food prep and instruction. I incorporate about 75% raw into my diet, especially in the spring and summer. I have raised a family using whole foods and alternative health options – food is key to staying healthy and out of the doctors office.

Elaine May 15, 2013 at 5:53 pm

I had breast cancer 5 years ago and was eating very healthy and juicing, in the last year and a half I didn’t follow what I should have and was eating some of the foods I shouldn’t I now have had to get back on my diet as the cancer had come back and need to eat more raw. I know this is the way to eat and the grain grinder would help me out so much. I am eating oats etc now for breakfast and love muffins. I want to eat healthy and show people this is the way to a better way of life. Thank you.

Helyn May 15, 2013 at 5:57 pm

We eat lots of organic salads year round but now that the garden is planted we look forward to a lot of fresh raw produce. At our age, my husband 83 and I am 63, the more quality we offer our bodies the easier it is to get things accomplished through out the day.

Helyn May 15, 2013 at 6:00 pm

We eat organic salads through out the year but now that the garden is planted we are looking forward to having more selections. At our age, My husband is 83 and I am 63, we find that the better quality food that we eat help a lot with accomplishing everything each day demands.

amanda May 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm

I eat healthy because it makes me feel balanced and energized. Eating mostly raw foods helps me feel my best, so I’d estimate eating approx. 90-95%, depending on the date. My goal is always to eat 100% healthy :) You’re blog is beautiful – keep shining! xo

Tracie May 15, 2013 at 7:10 pm

Love this beautiful site! We’ve been eating more a more raw and while we are only at about 55% each raw meal “feels” different leaving us light and energized versus heavy. With so many dietary restrictions in our family we are fairly certain that raw is our best way of life and are excited to eat a good 90% raw as we get further into our growing season.

Thanks for all the great information and inspiration.

Tracie May 15, 2013 at 7:23 pm

Love this site! We are only a good 55% most days some a little better…we are just learning and aquiring the tools of the trade. As our growing season advances we aim to eat 90% raw as it seems to be the only way of healthy eating that sits well for our whole family and our too numerous dietary restrictions.

Thanks for the recipes, inspiration and opportunity!

Staci Hall May 15, 2013 at 7:33 pm

I eat healthy to be available and energetic for my children. I want them to remember their childhood as full of life and love with a mom who always got down in the dirt with them. Also, diabetes, cancer and heart disease all run in my family and I choose to try and beat the odds with sound nutrition and a good attitude. I am currently about 75% raw:)

vicky May 15, 2013 at 7:36 pm

We just recovered Raw Food the last of September and are trying to eat as much Raw Food as possible and feels comfortable because we are with two and it’s for each of us different. We still are looking for the best way for each and it isn’t that easy. So every help we can get is welcome, also this site

Lynn May 15, 2013 at 7:53 pm

I ran into some health concerns about two years ago and have been raw ever since. I’ve lost 75 lbs, improved my health to the point that even my vision is restoring itself. I love to cook and now love to uncook! I tend to eat about 95% raw allowing for foods like maple syrup and nutritional yeast which are healthy but not raw.

Suzanne May 15, 2013 at 8:01 pm

I’d love to grind/flake my own so I would be surer of the freshness. I love eating raw because it makes me feel so centered/balanced and I’d say I eat between 50 and 60% raw. It’s easily the most interesting, fun, and challenging type of “cooking,” that I’ve come across.

Margaret May 15, 2013 at 8:22 pm

I eat raw because that is why I do. I just started doing it one day, a long time ago, and I have just kept on doing it. I started back when there were no fancy machines, and my basic recipes are still pretty much “use your knife”, although I will admit that my beautiful Cuisinart food processor (which I scrimped and saved for for a year) is a beloved addition to my kitchen.
I’ve found “nude oats”, and sprout and dehydrated the oats, so this grain grinder would be very useful.
Thank you.

Christie C May 15, 2013 at 8:45 pm

60% of my diet has been raw since August 2012. Therefore, I’m a newbie raw foodie! The grain grider and flaker would be a great additon to my new lifestyle!

Emily B May 15, 2013 at 9:02 pm

I eat raw simply because it makes me feel better throughout the day. I have IBS and find anything that makes me feel better GI wise is good thing to stick with. I still have a long way to go because I think I’m around 40-50% raw. I bought you book about 4 months ago and have been trying to add more raw meal options into our diet. thank you for your blog. The grain mill/flaker looks awesome : )

Melissa May 15, 2013 at 9:06 pm

My family and I grow our own food and eat as much as we can from what we produce. It’s best for us, our CSA members and the environment. We probably eat about 85% raw and do so for a variety of reasons, but mainly because it just makes us feel better all around. :)

Katherine Shields May 15, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Since finding your website, I have learned so much about eating raw. I have known the health benefits of eating raw, but the recipes you have shared are simply rawmazing! We eat about 50% raw and feel so much better and healthier. We do a lot of juicing and keep pushing to eat more raw foods. Thank you for your inspiration!

Kim May 15, 2013 at 9:40 pm

I’ve just began my raw journey. I must gather more tools to really get going. I have your Rawmazing book I’ve been showing neighbors to get started. I’m currently at approx,,, 25% raw foods.
Thank you for all you do!

Devona May 15, 2013 at 9:58 pm

My family is eating healthier for our health, we are trying to heal our bodies. I would love to be able to make my own oat and rye flakes, I know that when I buy them already rolled that they have lost a lot of nutritional value. Normally we eat 70-90% raw. Thanks for a chance to win such an awesome machine!

Michelle May 15, 2013 at 10:17 pm

This would be a great addition to our kitchen. We are trying to eat healthier…we are older parents with a 5 yo, 4yo and a 9 month old. We have to stay healthy to keep up with them! I am also enjoying teaching my kids about healthy eating. We eat some raw…. trying to do more. We also just found out our 5yo needs to stay away from egg and dairy!

Aimee May 15, 2013 at 10:24 pm

Thank you for the give-away. I am working on eating healthy to become healthy. I am up to about 50-60% raw, it is not an easy transition but I am working on it.

Michele May 15, 2013 at 10:51 pm

This really IS rawmazing! What a wonderful tool to have in a kitchen that’s 50% raw! (mine…:) I’d bet that if I had this tool, I’d be able to create some really tasty treats. I’ve been into healthy since 1992 – when it wasn’t so “trendy”. But I’ve always said, eating healthy is MY health insurance. It’s been great to me. Keep up the good work. Great promo. Good luck everyone!

Kyla May 16, 2013 at 12:12 am

I have been eating a raw food diet for over 8 years, most of those years at 100% raw. It has completely transformed my mind, body and spirit, helped me have 2 wonderful pregnancies and births and cured me of severe depression and anxiety. Thanks for sharing all your amazing recipes and this great contest.

Nicole May 16, 2013 at 1:47 am

We eat about 80-100% raw depending on the weather. We eat this way to avoid sickness, for mental clarity, and to give our kids a solid foundation. Thank you for sharing this cool tool!

bernadette May 16, 2013 at 4:13 am

I have been House bound and Ill for most of my adult life, Since going raw and especially green smoothies and juices, health has slowly improved. Have so many health issues it has hampered my improvement(I could not say my recovery as I have been ill all my life) I am limited for breakfast ideas especially in winter. How wonderful to be able to have live sprouted cereals. I lived many years only being able to eat brown rice and rice milk. Since live raw foods, I now have a small variety to eat, but would so love to be able to have more. Thank you for all you insightful information and help. I try to live most of my life as a raw foodist avoiding dead cooking most of the time, as I already struggle to get nutrients into my system, why would I want to add dead nutrient depleted (stuff) into my body. All the best to everyone on this journey to better health.

Yannik May 16, 2013 at 5:53 am

Can we enter the contest if we live in Canada? I was so intrigued by your post on raw flaked oats and would love to be able to do this! I am passionate about eating healthy because it enhance everything in my life – the way my body performs, my energy, my longevity, my ability to concentrate, etc. I started exploring raw foods about three years ago and I would say that I now eat about 80% raw during the summer (raw until dinner and more flexibility in the evening) and 60-75% during winter months (I still drink juices and smoothies and eat big salads but I crave warmer foods).

Györgyi May 16, 2013 at 5:55 am

I really love your blog, so at first congrats for your whole activity.
I’m very lucky because I like very much vegetables and fruits so for me It’s natural to eat of them as much as possible mainly in raw. My weak point is the dessert but I always try to choose a healthy option and make raw and healthy desserts.
Good luck for everyone!

Felicia blair May 16, 2013 at 6:03 am

My very first raw food teacher 30 years ago had me eating steel cut oats. Her name was Dr Regina Lorr, she wrote ( among many) my first raw cookbook called Miracles in the Kitchen. She would be amazed the books and receipes now. She passed 2 years ago at age 92. I eat about 75 percent raw.
I love Rawmazing receipes, just gave a client your website last night. That kale and a avocado pesto will be a classic and a staple in my kitchen! Thanks for sharing your wonderfully creative receipes.

monique May 16, 2013 at 6:35 am

I would love to have this to grind my own flour. That would be awesome! Thanks for the giveaway. It’s very generous of you.

Frances Y. May 16, 2013 at 7:02 am

I eat a healthy and mostly plant-based diet for health reason, and raw food constitutes 40% of my diet.

Brittany @ twosaucysisters May 16, 2013 at 7:11 am

I eat healthy because it makes me feel good and it helps me to perform better in cross country and track and field. I would say I eat raw about 50% of the time- I always try to include a few servings of raw fruits and vegetables as well as eat raw nuts and seeds every day.

Everyll May 16, 2013 at 7:31 am

Hello from London, UK! It would be so wonderful to win this! Why? I work voluntarily in the local community, focusing on healthy eating/making healthy lifestyle changes, in order to help prevent and improve people’s general health and wellbeing. This includes demonstrating Vegan food and running such classes. Having recently researched Raw Foods, tried out many delicious recipes, and experienced the benefits, I would like to take it to the next level in bringing raw food dishes to the public – by making some recipe ingredients from scratch. So winning this handy piece of kitchen equipment would really benefit the communities I work with, and myself, as we continue on our raw food journey towards better health.

Jeannette Zelhart May 16, 2013 at 7:56 am

I am new to raw foods due to recently being diagnosed with breast cancer. I eat 2 meals of raw food a day and even with cancer have noticed a difference in how I feel. Thanks for the chance to win.

Judith Heisser May 16, 2013 at 8:45 am

On July 12, 2011 I began eating 100 percent raw to encourage a friend who was doing a 21 day challenge. Before that I was content to do 2 meals a day and snacks raw. Whatever I would cook for my family I consumed at an evening meal. That “21 day challenge encouragement” continued as “raw for thirty days” and then I decided to continue for 60 days and 90 days. I never went back to cooked food. This July will mark 2 years since I began and it has become my lifesyle. I first began incorporating raw into my diet on the hopes of someday getting off my blood pressure medication. I’ve been off the medication for over a year now. To God be the glory!
P.S. Love, Love, Love, your recipes!

Chris May 16, 2013 at 9:33 am

My girlfriend and I are always eating healthy, but looking to eat even healthier and that will include much more raw food. Currently, we’re only around 15-20%, but going to up that number considerably in the coming months. And grain grinders, dehydrators, etc. will certainly help with that!

Keep up the great work!

Patrice May 16, 2013 at 10:03 am

I have had oral thrush for five months due to overuse of antibiotics and steroids prescribed by doctor. Since doctors don’t recognize candida as a viable disease (even though they caused it) I am trying, on my own, to cure this problem. No sugar of any kind including agave, no wheat, only organic vegetables, organic meat, no grains except oats. I eat 50% raw only because it’s hard to find recipes to fit my yeast free diet! I do fix your recipe for walnut cacao fudge and substitute stevia with water for the agave.

Lauri May 16, 2013 at 11:23 am

I eat healthy because I feel better when I do. I eat about 80% raw.

Shawna May 16, 2013 at 11:44 am

My family and I have been making strides to progress towards all things natural, whether a product used externally or daily diet. We have always consumed reasonably healthy foods, but it’s time to take it to the next level. I’d say we presently around 50% raw at least.

Sheryl Bradley May 16, 2013 at 2:11 pm

Oh let me count the ways … or should I say ‘the reasons’ that I eat healthy. I am eating healthy to optimize my energy, creativity, connection with universal energy, mental clarity, physical prowess, and ability to share my gifts with others. To live my life, to be aware, to have connection and feeling, to be *alive* while I’m here spinning around on planet Earth at 1000+ mph, and dreaming of all the miracles taking place each day.

These gifts are everyone’s birthright, and I believe raw food is one of the tippy-top contributors to embracing them (along with meditation, love and exercise). And I’m not even 100% raw! Just imagine if I were! On the average, I would say I eat about 70% raw. Of course that varies, and accordingly so do the optimal experiences of my life.

Theresa May 16, 2013 at 2:58 pm

Eating raw provides me so many wonderful health benefits, and it is environmentally sustainable!

Geri May 16, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I’m on the body ecology diet and am forever eating as much raw and nutritious food as I can possibly get in to. I also grind most food that nmeeds grinding in coffee grinder and so would absoultely get the most benefits out of this amazing looking device :)

Susan May 17, 2013 at 7:50 am

I try to eat raw 70 – 80% of the time. Sometimes a challenge but there are so many incredible raw food sites to find recipes. Rawmazing is a favorite. Raw food played a big part in my 50 lb weight loss : )

Juli May 17, 2013 at 10:42 pm

Eating raw food gives me mental clarity and peace of mind. I try to eat raw food around 50% of the time. Thank you for this great website.

Bev McArthur May 19, 2013 at 5:27 pm

I would love one of these as i eat GF and it would be nice to make my own flour and flakes

Sierra June 5, 2013 at 9:04 am

Hi. My name is Sierra. I LOVE your recipes. I have been eating raw for a year. Im about 70 precent raw. I have two kids. Getting them to eat raw is —– somewhat of a challenge. They are slowly warming up to raw eating. I hope to win the grinder, it would be a big help with oatmeal. :)

Deanna June 13, 2013 at 5:58 pm

Did you prefer the flic floc or norpro? Unfortunately there are no reviews for the flic floc on amazon. Thanks!
