Raw Food Photos!

Pure Jeevan's online friend, urban gardner, eco-warrior, and all-around rawkstar Mike Lieberman (aka CanarsieBK) started this clever site up a while back, and it seems to have just one delightful purpose -- to show one picture of a raw food dish per day (well, most days, anyway). Or, maybe it's just to show as many raw foods pictures as people submit!? (Care to share your thoughts, Mike )

Besides being a much-needed repository of delicious-looking raw food photos, the site is also highly inspirational. For anyone who thinks "raw foods" means only "salads," a quick trip to Mike's site will get your wheels spinning and your appetite fully engaged. (That September 24 picture of "Cheesiecake" by Rawaga is so delicious looking, I heard Doug Graham is now renaming his book 10/10/80!)

So, check out Mike's site at, and also friend Mike while you're at it. (You can find him here on Facebook.)

(Jim here... On a personal note, I'm painfully close to leaving the corporate world once and for all. My job is mostly answering documents known as RFPs. I used to think that, for the rest of my life, those three letters would call to mind the dull, bland, uber-boring phrase, "Request for Proposal." But now, thanks to Mike's web site, I can just think of Raw Food Photos! So, seriously, thanks Mike!)

Thanks for highlighting this site.

The secret is that I post 1 photo a day Mon-Thurs for now since it's still new.

Yea those kind of RFPs aren't fun. These RFPs are!
