Watermelon, Snicker's substitute, Raw Dogs, Mark-Anthony Hatsis's Ambrosia...

Breakfast- 1/2 watermelon

Lunch- 1 Snackraw bar, 4 bananas

I finally tried The Raw Bakery's Snackraw Bar.  Seeing a basket filled with them beside the cashier after I had already paid for two watermelons, I am an example that Point of Sale Merchandising works.  The Snackraw bar doesn't really fit with my recent spell of "keeping it simple" eating, but impulsively, I thought I'd give it a try.  Snackraw is an obvious raw version of the Snickers bar; it was good but not so great that I feel like I'm on a slippery slope away from simple eating.  Also, it's expensive, $4.99 for a raw candy bar.  Ahhhhhhhh, this is why all those writers make those annoying comments about the raw lifestyle being expensive!

In Pet dumpers' litany of lame excuses, Newsday writer Denise Flaim provides unintended support of reasons to go on a raw diet.  Denise writes that "Pam Dennison, author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog Training," had a friend who took in an 18-month-old Schnauzer. "She had a kidney problem and the owners 'loved her so much they couldn't bear to watch her die.'" (Postscript: The friend kept the dog, switched her to a raw-food diet, and five years later, the dog is still going strong.)"

Raw Foodist Mark-Anthony Hatsis, author, artist, publisher, has a new and very interesting raw food book, Ambrosia: Art of Raw Cuisine"Marc Anthony Hatsis celebrates the pure, simple beauty of raw food. Pairing recipes with his own meditative, mandala-inspired drawings, Hatsis gives readers the first raw-food preparation and menu book to offer perfectly combined meals for ultimate digestive health."  Mark Anthony has a quiet confident demeanor that conveys integrity and quality; I expect that "Ambrosia" will be a book of integrity and quality.
