Raw Food: Ben and Sayuri Interview

ben-and-sayuri-web
Many people have asked me to post more about nutrition on the site, so I recently managed to arrange an interview with popular raw food chefs Ben Richards and Sayuri Tanaka. Not only do they run raw food trainings but they also are involved with joint raw food & yoga retreats as well as have their own raw food restaurant in Ubud Bali. Amoungst other things I get to ask them about how they got interested in raw food, what people might expect starting out, how to transition from a more standard diet and the philosophy behind their choices to be raw foodies.
