    Hi Sara! Great video! I bought some chia seeds a couple of weeks ago and haven’t used them yet. thanks for the inspiration!
    I would love to see videos of some more of your ‘traveling food’.
    (PS, you are the reason I first got into raw food! thank you!)

    Love it Sara! The video adds an awesome personal touch. Looking forward to getting my chia in my Mountain Rose Herbs box this week. πŸ™‚

    fun video, pretty friend! So here is my question…I am thinking about different ways to lose some long overdue baby weight…convince me I should go raw (at least while I lose weight)

    Nice! I got a free sample of chia seeds from a raw food order and haven’t known what to do with them. I will give this a try πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the informative video!

    I’m going to add some chia to my RFW order, so glad I saw this! πŸ™‚

    oh…the question I was going to ask…there isn’t any contraindication to using chia for nursing mothers, is there? I’m nursing twins and a toddler so I always have to make sure I’m not taking anything that would affect my milk supply. Thanks!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and am jumping at the opportunity to ask you something that’s been on my mind. I try to eat local foods as much as possible. Do you think it is possible to stick to a raw diet all year, only eating locally grown food? Thanks for answering our questions!

  • 10. Dad  |  July 30, 2009 at 3:16 am

    Hey Bear… Very nice!

    The only question we have is why couldn’t we see Lucy more clearly 😦 Bummer… You need to fix that video production problem.

    Oh … by the way. Great Video … loved your smile and always pleasant attitude. Safe travels and God Bless

    I loved it! It was great to see your face! And with so much great info!
    Looking forward to more videos.
    I do have a question for your video…
    Can you share some good Quinoa and Chia recipes?

  • 12. crystal  |  July 30, 2009 at 2:06 pm

    i’ve enjoyed reading your blogs for awhile. πŸ™‚ i would love some info and tips about eating more raw without relying on nuts as a component as my son (4 y.o.) is highly allergic. (quick preparation is also a plus since we also have a new baby)

  • 13. Staci  |  July 30, 2009 at 5:52 pm

    Hey Sara! The video is great.. it’s so nice to put a face to a blog πŸ™‚

    My question:

    I too having nursing baby (born July 2009).. I have been trying to go raw..

    Do you find it difficult to feel satisfied when eating raw? I am constantly FAMISHED!! Have any advice? I am also trying to lose a few pounds of baby weight..

    Thanks and Blessings!!

    Oh! BTW..

    I got my first order of chia. Love it, made chia porriage (with bananas and stevia), and added some to our smoothies! Thanks for the recommendation, I had never even heard of chia.

    Also.. I love, love, LOVE Raw Food World!


  • 15. Flo  |  July 30, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Love, it! Thanks for doing the video, and hope to see more! So inspiring. I think it would be cool to see a video glimpse of the food you take on the road.
    I’m curious, what/how does Bella eat typically while you’re eating raw?

  • 16. Kristin  |  July 30, 2009 at 8:50 pm

    Oh, it’s so fun to see you “in real life” kind of. πŸ™‚ You did good! I’m gonna have to try this chia out…sounds good to me…I like it that you don’t have to have it ground to get good health benefits too.

  • 17. ailin  |  July 31, 2009 at 12:36 am

    this is great! thanks and its awesome to hear your voice and see your face…..i know this is going to be a very helpful thing for so many people, including myself.

  • 18. joan  |  July 31, 2009 at 12:38 pm

    great and informative video

  • 19. olivia  |  August 6, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    i’m drinking a green smoothie right now because of your influence! it has kale (which i recently discovered that i LOVE), banana, blueberries, homemade yogurt, almond milk and….CHIA!
    i was so excited to go to whole foods and get chia and even more excited to find out that it’s totally edible! so far i’ve only mixed it with my yogurt and fruit or smoothie. working my way up to putting some in my water bottle. does take time to get used to the texture but i kind of like weird things so it works. i love fruits and veggies but i also love to bake comfort foods so it’s a challenge to slowly change my ways….and convince my husband he should too! love your blogs!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
