This past weekend we had the pleasure of Rhio and her partner, Leigh, visiting with us. Rhio was in town for a presentation on Genetically Engineered foods (more about that here) and she took the opportunity to spend some time with us. It was a lovely weekend and we talked about all kinds of things (yes, even non-raw food things!), laughed a lot, enjoyed delicious raw foods, and got to know each other better.
While they were here, Rhio and Leigh agreed to allow us to interview each of them for this blog. Since we needed to keep the interview under ten minutes (the maximum time allowed on most video sites), we decided to ask questions about topics we had already touched on with Rhio and Leigh during their stay--things we thought might be interesting for all of you to hear about.
I hope you enjoy hearing Rhio talk about how she got into raw foods, her popular book, the farm she and Leigh have been developing (and how you can help her out on the farm!), and her recent and upcoming raw food projects. If you ever have a chance to meet Rhio and Leigh, I hope you'll do so! They are genuinely sweet, intelligent, loving individuals.
For more information on Rhio, see:
- Rhio s book is Hooked on Raw (on her site, here).
- Her talk radio show, Hooked On Raw, appears here.
- Her new DVD, What s NOT Cookin? in Rhio s Kitchen , (which we have an early copy of!) will also be available very soon on her site!

Wow! What a great interview!
I loved meeting Rhio and Leigh when they were here...they are such interesting people. Rhio is so sweet (and Leigh is so funny...I'm looking forward to the interview with him tomorrow). I would love to go stay with them and work on that farm!!
Thanks so much for posting this.
