Anyone can benefit from a raw diet -- without buying any special equipment or programs. You don't have to eat 100% raw to enjoy benefits such as weight loss, glowing, radiant skin and improved digestion for starters.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2009
Purely Delicious, a raw food and eco lifestyle magazine, is now available on select newsstands and Whole Foods Markets. Previously available only via subscription, the quarterly publication is informing a growing audience about the benefits of the raw food lifestyle made popular by celebrities such as Uma Thurman, Demi Moore, Carol Alt and Jason Mraz.
“Remarkably, our new subscriptions have increased more than 25% since I took over Purely Delicious in October 2008 -- even in a down economy,” said Rebecca Carlson, editor and publisher. “People are thirsting for information about holistic health, diet and wellness.”
Rebecca knows first-hand about the benefits of raw vegan food: She credits her faith and a raw diet for a complete turnaround in her health. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in December 2005 and suffered with symptoms such as the loss of feelings in her legs, blurry vision, vertigo, fatigue and depression. Rebecca began a 100% raw food diet in July of 2007 and has been symptom-free since then.
“Anyone can benefit from a raw diet -- without buying any special equipment or programs” Rebecca said, adding that you don't have to eat 100% raw to enjoy benefits such as weight loss, glowing, radiant skin and improved digestion for starters.
There are many misconceptions about the raw diet, which consists of raw nuts, fruits, vegetables, sea vegetables, sprouts, and sprouted grains combined or eaten alone but not heated above 115F degrees, Carlson said. She added: “Most people wouldn’t believe how amazingly delicious the food is … until they try it. We enjoy everything from key lime pie and enchiladas to lasagna, pizza and ice cream. There is no deprivation, only good, organic, tasty food."
Each Purely Delicious issue offers gourmet and quick raw recipes from world-famous chefs such as Chad Sarno and Matthew Kenney; a “Raw 101” beginners’ section; personality profiles of such notables as David Wolfe and Dr. Gabriel Cousens; and advice on travel, kitchen design, green living, entertaining, pets, fitness and more.
Single copies of Purely Delicious retail for $5.97US/$9.97CAN; subscriptions start at $25US/$30CAN per year. Besides the U.S. and Canada, Purely Delicious is read around the globe, with subscribers in 22-plus countries throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Purely Delicious also appears on Facebook and via Twitter. Plans are in the works for an online version launching in late 2009.
