They say it is never too late to start over. Ok, it may be a cliché, but here me out. Life has taught me that change can happen, and sometimes it can be revolutionary. My name is Martha Stanton, and this is 2010 New Life.
In 2010, that cliché moment happened to me when I decided to make a change in my life. You see, I began reading about a raw food diet. While I didn’t think much of it at the time, it slowly grew one me. It wasn’t long before I started looking up recipes, experimenting in my free time, and producing some truly amazing meals. I went from not thinking about food at all to becoming completely obsessed with it. Why? Because, I saw results.
The raw food movement dates back to Maximilian Bircher-Benner, a doctor who in the 1800’s discovered that he could cure his own disease by eating raw food. Expanding over the centuries, eating only raw food as a diet has grown in popularity. I personally discovered it accidentally when taking a look at my own life. After reading the scientific evidence that is out there, I decided to try it myself and since then I haven’t looked back. From tasty dishes to a new outlook on the role of food, a raw food diet is like a philosophy of life.
The challenge is that raw food can sometimes require building up a lot of expertise with different cooking practices. Representing a steep learning curve at first, I personally experienced the challenge of having to learn the ins and outs of a raw food diet on my own. Let my experience be your guide.
After building up a lot of recipes and buying/trying out different equipment in the kitchen, a friend and frequent guest suggested that I make this information available to other people. This blog, 2010newlife.com is just that. The purpose of this blog is to post recipes, reviews, and everything else you need to become an expert in the world of raw foods.
As you will discover, I am generally no-nonsense when it comes to posting and will only post things that I either believe in or have used. From the first moment I tried to work out a raw food recipe to writing these very words, a raw food diet has helped me with a new outlook on life. Take a moment to review this blog yourself and see how it is never too late to start over.
