All this week we're going to be highlighting different sections of the All Raw Directory (A.R.D.). For those of you who don't already know about it, Jim and I created an amazing site ( to house links to every source of raw food information that exists on the Internet. It's a huge task, but we created the site so that it's community-run. Housing links to all of the information available within the raw food community is a near-impossible task for one individual, but as a group we can do amazing things!

If you don't know how the All Raw Directory works, you are going to love the ease and simplicity of it all! Simply become a member (it's FREE and always will be!) and begin adding any raw food links that aren't already included (the system checks for duplicates, so don't worry about that). You can add your personal raw food blog, a raw food business, your social raw food media links (like Twitter, Facebook, GiveItToMeRaw, RawFu, etc.) for others to easily find you, share links to informative pages about the raw food diet/lifestyle, and so much more!

On the All Raw Directory, you are able to flag links that aren't working (or aren't appropriate), comment on and rate the various links that are shared, and leave messages for other members of the All Raw Directory. Most importantly, however, you'll be able to search for and find all kinds of wonderful links to raw food sites! What you can find on the site, what you can add, and how much you can be inspired by the information on the All Raw Directory is endless. The site will continue to grow as the raw community grows! How cool is that !

Today, I'd like to highlight the RECIPES CATEGORY on the All Raw Directory. As of the time I'm writing this, there are over 650 links to recipes included on the site! I've clicked on a lot of them, amazed at the beautiful creations that others have come up with. Below are three recipes I found today on the A.R.D. They are delicious, cooling treats for the warm, sunny days of summer!

Cantaloupe Snow Cone

Be sure to add links to the A.R.D. for any raw food recipes you have available on the Internet. It's a nice way to share your love of raw foods, to invite others to visit your site, and to be a part of the wonderful raw food community!

Visit the All Raw Directory today and let us know what you think!

Lots of love to all of you,
