SORT BY Relevancy
Everyone thought the raw vegan diet was a fad soon to pass, but in 2014, it's alive and well. The raw food movement has been around for decades, but recently, it has morphed into a diet that’s more accessible, affordable and sophisticated – and no longer only for the crunchy, hippie types (not that there’s anything wrong with that :-)
The raw food concept, at a basic level, believes that cooking removes the nutrients in food. Gena Hamshaw, CCN, a former book editor turned clinical nutritionist and author of “Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat,” has been at the forefront of this shift. She believes that we should know where our food comes from, what it does to our body and how we can think about it as fuel, rather than just something to alleviate a hunger pang. Her blog abounds with innovative dishes that are as yummy as they are sustainable. Gena is ready to introduce you and open the window into the pleasures of raw food. And, if you are new to the raw food movement or don’t want to be 100% raw, no worries. Gena believes that a healthy vegan diet includes raw and cooked foods—the perfect combination!
I'll be available to answer your questions about my 6 month journey transitioning and holding a raw food low fat high carb diet.

Recently in private discussion, George disclosed to Alicia that one of his favorite adult film stars was Teagan Presley. Coincidentally, Teagan was doing a feature at the local gentleman's club "The Cadillac Lounge" So Raw Sex decided to invade The Cadillac Lounge for the night and see what all the hype is about! Tune in to hear all about our adventures, the latest "Sex in the News" and as always, Randy's Random Retro Segment!
Join Cherise, George and Scott with special guest LeeAnn Thill, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, vegan that happens to have type 1 diabetes.
Lee Ann Thill is known to the DOC as a diabetes blogger and leader of diabetes community art projects, but since transitioning to a vegan lifestyle in 2013, her work as an activist and academic has been shifting and expanding. She has been exploring the relationships between veganism, intersectional justice, art, and diabetes.
Lee Ann has achieved a new level of health and happiness following a vegan lifestyle. In addition to her academic inquiry, she is excited to answer questions about going vegan, address common misunderstandings about veganism, and offer support to people who are interested in transitioning.
She is a registered board-certified art therapist and Pennsylvania licensed professional counselor, doctoral student, professor of art therapy, artist, and volunteer with Peace Advocacy Network and Catskill Animal Sanctuary. Lee Ann has had type 1 diabetes since 1978.
