The Raw Food Train is Here—Do You Want Onboard? : by Guest Author Cherie Soria

It used to be you couldn’t find raw food restaurants anywhere,
but that’s changing.

We all have dreams and fantasies. They give us something to look forward to; something to work for. Without dreams, we tend to stagnate. Without fantasizing about our future, we don’t know how to recreate our present. Dreams turn into goals which eventually become realities. It’s an exciting process.

I’m thrilled to share a dream that just recently came to fruition. I always tell my students at Living Light to celebrate their accomplishments. We shouldn’t be shy about admitting to the things we do well and patting ourselves on the back for a job well done. Taking a moment to celebrate when we have manifested something that’s important to us sets us up for further successes!

People are often hesitant to celebrate themselves, so I make it a point to encourage my students, as well as my staff, to be proud of themselves and speak up when they’ve accomplished something. The more positive reinforcement we can give ourselves and our friends, the more pathways are opened up for all of us. So, on my latest tour, I’m celebrating something that has been really important to me and it is something that affects us all. I want to share it with you so we can celebrate together!

The Raw Food Revolution is Here
Back in 1991, my dream was to take raw food mainstream. This year, and especially on this tour, I realize that my dream has come true! When I first began creating gourmet raw cuisine, it was brand new. You couldn’t find it anywhere. I so wanted to make a raw vegan diet delicious, attractive and available to everyone.

Today, twenty plus years later, that is no longer the case. In Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, and Toronto, raw food restaurants are thriving! A few months ago, when we traveled to Bali, we found many raw restaurants there. I also hear about new restaurants opening all over the world. All of a sudden, on this trip, I realize that my fantasy has become reality and I am SO TICKLED, I’m beside myself. And, this is just the beginning. In many places, this is still very new and there is lots of room to grow, so I’m not going to rest on my laurels. We all have a hand in taking raw foods mainstream.

It’s not too late for you to reinvent yourself and join the raw food revolution. There are all kinds of careers out there in the raw food world. The opportunities are endless. If you’re not ready to change your career, you can send a friend to Living Light for an education that can help make a difference in the world. There are many deserving people who can’t afford to travel, but who want desperately to come to California and study with us. Make a difference in your life, or someone’s life, and celebrate! We are changing the world!

  1. I actually just wrote a blog post this morning about why we should eat raw — I love it — consider me aboard the Rawvolution Train:)

    I recently relocated to Seattle & I’m impressed with the healthy options when out and about. I’m used to preparing everything myself in my own kitchen, so the breaks here and there at trustworthy spots is definitely a treat.

    I can’t wait to check out Cherie’s books — great post!! =)

  3. I too am trying to reinvent the way I view my diet, especially seeing as I am pushing my father to do the same. Difference is, he needs to. He is the one that is battling Cancer. But I need to make the change now so I can protect myself from any future disease.

    Thanks as always for this information
