    We have a weekend challenge that will one-up everyone else’s healthy-eating resolutions. Are you in? Cool. Now, quit cooking, quit take-out, and go raw. It sounds monastic, austere, and downright saintly, but hear us out.

    A raw diet, meaning an all-vegetarian diet, where foods are not heated past 115 degrees, is full of positive promises for your health and the environment. Eat this way and you'll start craving nutrient-dense foods over heavy, processed, or sugary ones. You’ll also have an aura of wellness about you. Translation: this diet will undo holiday weight gain, and is full of beauty benefits—lit-from-within skin, glossy hair, and bright eyes. Intrigued yet? Us, too.

    To kick-start this lifestyle exploration, we’ve enlisted the help of Laura Miller, owner of Sidesaddle Kitchen, a raw food bakery, loved by omnivores and the strictest of vegans, alike. Spend a weekend with her chocolate pudding and lemon fennel pasta, and we're betting the world will be your oyster, figuratively speaking, of course.
