Q & A with Sara

Thanks for all the great feedback on my first video! 🙂 You asked a lot of questions and I answer them all in this video…it does get a bit long (15 minutes), so I wanted to list everything in order that I answer it so you have the option to fast forward.


Today I’m answering your questions about the following:

  • Losing weight on the raw diet after having a baby
  • Eating chia while nursing
  • Local foods / Raw foods
  • Quinoa and chia recipes
  • Eating raw without relying on a nut-heavy diet
  • Staying “full” on the raw diet
  • What Bella eats and raising kids raw

One correction: When I am talking about local and raw foods…I accidentally said that “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” was about raw foods. It IS about raw, but mostly about LOCAL foods 🙂

Have a great weekend!

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

“Finish 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
