Congratulations on completing one year of raw, Sam!


Kevin Gianni is an energetic, upbeat health enthusiast (here's an older post I wrote about him).It seems like just yesterday he began producing his entertaining and informative Renegade Health Show video episodes, but he has actually already produced his 100th episode! If you haven't checked out all that Kevin does, yet, I highly recommend doing so. You can find him all over the place: on his site Renegade Health, YouTube, FaceBook, ?and my favorite online fun spot: Twitter.Be sure to drop him a line if you like his work, too. He loves hearing from his audience. Congratulations on your 100 episodes, Kevin!


Beth, better known as Bunny Berry, is a rising star in the raw food community. Her wit, beauty, honesty, and creativity have earned her a fast-growing following of fans. Beth documented her personal 100 day raw food challenge through video blogs (also known as vlogs) that she posted on YouTube, a well as her blog. Beth can also be found over on Twitter.
