I'm hungry!, 10 March 2011
Author: Harmonie Tangonan from United States

Great insight into a an unorthodox lifestyle.

I love documentaries that will expose you to something that is not part of the mainstream. The Raw Truth presents the topic in a slightly quirky, yet informative way.

What are raw foods? What makes it healthy? What's so bad about cooking your meals? After you watch this, you might challenge yourself to change your habits.

Nice contrasts of characters ranging from the raw vegan chef, to the skeptical/traditional chef, to the girl just starting out with the diet, to the woman who stopped living the raw vegan lifestyle.

And all of the raw food shown in this documentary looks DELICIOUS! It truly does intrigue me to eat healthy.
