Read from the Book
Introduction If you want to transform your life and your health, Raw Challenge will help you to do just that. You are about to embark on your own personal Raw Challenge, and using this book as your guide, you will begin the transition to becoming the best “you” you can be. The quest to grow emotionally, spiritually, and physically is a lifelong endeavor. I am always striving to expand and grow beyond my current limitations; in my mind, there is no ceiling on what you can accomplish. Once I started to live a healthier lifestyle with raw foods, I grew so much emotionally and spiritually. You would not believe how much bad food choices and an unhealthy lifestyle can hold you back from reaching your true potential. Raw Challenge will help you on your journey to transform yourself and your health. To have peace in your heart and mind is a priceless gift. By changing what you eat, you will begin to feel and look better. You’ll start to feel better about yourself and your circumstances. Last fall Drew Hunt, the café manager at Kimberton Whole Foods (my local health food store) approached me about holding a Raw Challenge at their original store in Kimberton, Pennsylvania. As a passionate supporter of the raw lifestyle (not to mention the fact that Kimberton Whole Foods is practically my second home), my response was an immediate, “Sure, let’s do it!” This book is a product of the experiences from this Raw Challenge. The participants in my Challenge were not world renowned raw

"Another popular trend in modern eating is the move to a raw, or raw as possible, diet for not only weight loss but health enhancement in general. 'The raw diet is a raw lifestyle. When I eat this way I feel at peace, which is a gift that no money can buy,' says chef and holistic health practitioner Lisa Montgomery. In Raw Challenge: The 30-Day Program to Help You Lose Weight and Improve Your Diet and Health with Raw Foods, Montgomery encourages the reader to ease into uncooking over the course of a month. Her 30-day meal plan not only specifies raw-only recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner but also provides daily facts and affirmations in addition to space for the reader’s log entries. A section of testimonials provides helpful real-life advice from people who have gone through Montgomery’s program." -- Energy Times
