Yes, these are the grapes the woman in Westerly Natural Market was so excited to tell me about yesterday. She was right; they were very very sweet and delicious. I haven't prepared green juice for myself in a very long time. It tasted so delicious and satisfying last night that I made myself another serving this morning. I drank it, cleaned the juicer, and then ate the grapes maybe a half an hour later.My home state is North Carolina; I grew up in New Bern, in the east. There's alot of pit cooked barbecue, fried chicken, and baked sweet potatoe eating there. Over the years that I've been back to visit, I haven't been aware of any raw food activity except in the western part of the state around Ashville. Today I was happy to read that there is some raw food activity in the east, in the Rocky Mount area. Rocky Mount Telegram writes: "The changes were subtle at first. He noticed he had more energy. His arthritis pain did not seem so bad. A few months after Ken Moorefield went on a strict raw food diet, he could barely believe the differences in his health. 'I had lost probably 25 pounds and was already off of cholesterol and blood pressure medicine and already on my way to being pretty healthy again,' said Moorefield of Rocky Mount. Now, seven months after he started eating only fruits and vegetables, Moorefield has lost more than 50 pounds, cut his diabetes medicine dosage in half and had about 90 percent of his arthritis pain disappear."
Rocky Mount is close to my home town of New Bern. I hope the movement continues east towards "home".
