How would you like to visit my home and the homes of 23 other busy people who thrive on raw foods, peek inside our private kitchens, and “spy” on us as we prepare meals for an entire week?

I’m talking about well-known raw fooders like me and:

Rhonda Malkmus

Russell James

Philip McCluskey

Penni Shelton

Tonya Zavasta, and

Nathan Crane

Plus, a variety of people who eat 50-90% raw, such as:

  • Kemi Nekvapil, a leading speaker in Australia and author of "Raw Beauty" 
  • Veronica Grace, author of “Vegan Comfort Foods From Around the World” 
  • Lisa Books-Williams, Raw Chef and Vegan Cooking Instructor

Well, you might not be able to sneak into our kitchens. But now, thanks to my friend Nomi Shannon’s groundbreaking latest project, you’ll get the next best thing. ... It’s her all new collection called:

What Do Raw Fooders Eat? Volume 2

Discover Exactly What the Successful Ones Do

Here’s the scoop. 24 raw fooders kept meticulous food journals for an entire week. (Raw fooders = 50% or more raw.)

This collection will give you hundreds of brand new ideas to thrill your taste buds and shake up your menu plan. You’ll never again settle for the same boring meals, or wonder what to eat.  And it’s yours risk free for three full months.

The difference between What Do Raw Fooders Eat, Volume 2 and a recipe book--despite the fact that there are hundreds of recipes in the book--is that you are seeing actual meal plans, not just a pile of unrelated recipes.

Is this the key to your success as a raw fooder? Nomi thinks that it very well might be, and so do I! Finally, you get to see the full picture. 7 full days of eating from 24 successful raw fooders. 504 Meals! Plus snacks!

What Do Raw Fooders Eat, Volume 2 is ready NOW both as a printed, full-color, hard-copy book and as a PDF eBook. I am so excited!
