It’s Friday, and I am deeming it “Fan Friday”. I realize that doesn’t make a lot of sense, so I will explain. I needed a word that started with “F”, to go with Friday, and today, I am going to share some non-raw places that I am currently a fan of. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
Wild Earth TV: (Link) Lilly is a black bear in Northern Minnesota who is apparently getting ready to give birth. This link goes directly to an infrared camera that is pointed into her den. It is an amazing peek into nature and watching this mama bear in labor can quickly become an obsession. She even has her own Facebook page where fans are expressing their angst and love for Lilly as she goes through the pangs of birth. I am pretty sure Lilly is a raw foodist.
My wonderful friend, Lee Zukor, of Simple, Good and Tasty always provides great content and a in-depth view into our food focusing on local, sustainable and organic. Lee is one of my favorite brain storming buddies and he always inspires me. His blog is mid-west orientated but with writers contributing from many walks of life, there is great information here to get you started thinking about where your food actually comes from, if our food system is broken and what we can do to fix it.
I can’t mention Lee with out giving a shout out to Barth Anderson over at Fair Food Fight. Another fantastic blog that supports the family farmer while exposing the interesting practices of large food conglomerates. They are all about real food vs processed food and about real people vs the faceless giants that have taken us so far away from healthy pure food. In Barth’s words, “My passion is creating a community of farmers and eaters who care about sustaining our food, our bodies, and the land.”

These are a few of the places I love to visit. I hope you will enjoy then as much as I do. I am off to the kitchen to develop a new raw bread recipe and get some sprouts going. Have a wonderful Friday!
