    For those unfamiliar with this way of eating:
    Raw foodism (or rawism) is a diet consisting of uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods or wild foods.

    Depending on the type of lifestyle and results desired, raw food diets may include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds (including sprouted whole grains such as gaba rice), eggs, fish (such as sashimi), meat (such as carpaccio), and non-pasteurized/non-homogenized dairy products (such as raw milk, raw milk cheese, and raw milk yogurt).

    Raw foodism can include any diet of primarily unheated food, or food cooked at less than 40 °C (104 °F) to 46 °C (115 °F). Raw foodists can be divided between those that advocate raw veganism or vegetarianism, those that advocate a raw omnivorous diet, and those that advocate a 100% raw carnivorous diet.

    Many foods in raw food diets are simple to prepare, such as fruits, salads, meat, and dairy. Other foods can require considerable advanced planning to prepare for eating. Rice and some other grains, for example, require sprouting or overnight soaking to become digestible. Many raw foodists believe it is best to soak nuts and seeds before eating them, to activate their enzymes, and deactivate enzyme inhibitors. The amount of soak time varies for all nuts and seeds.

    I have to admit I am not much for raw food, not even big on salads. Wish I was but when I was growing up my mother made me eat lots of raw stuff in hopes I'd lose some weight and it didn't help me, just made me angry that my sisters got candy and I got a carrot.

    You poor thing! I feel your pain. Not much imagination in a raw carrot, is there?

    Raw food has come a long way since that poor, pathetic carrot. Take a look at this:

    1 cup raw pecans
    3/4 cup raw walnuts
    1 cup (packed) pitted dates
    1/4 tsp (scant) sea salt
    1/4 tsp cinnamon

    3 cups fresh strawberries (measured whole if small, or cut in half if large; these are for filling, you will need extra for garnishing if desired)
    3/4 cup raw cashews, unsoaked (see note)
    3-4 tbsp raw agave nectar (can substitute pure maple syrup if preferred; start with 3, adjust to taste)
    1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
    Couple pinches sea salt
    1 tsp lemon zest (stir in after pureeing)
    Extra strawberries for garnishing, optional

    1) Lightly oil a pie plate with coconut or another oil.
    2) Prepare the crust: Place all the crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse briefly until crumbly and the mixture will hold together when pressed with your fingers.
    3) Transfer the mixture to the prepared pie plate, pressing it evenly into the pan.
    4) Prepare the filling: Place all the filling ingredients, except the lemon zest (and starting with 3 tablespoons of the agave nec- tar), in a high-powered blender (see note). Puree for a minute or so at medium-high speed until completely smooth and no texture of the cashews remains.
    5) Taste, and add the remaining tablespoon of agave, if needed, to sweeten, and puree again.
    6) Once smooth, stir in the lemon zest.
    7) Pour the filling into the crust, then cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place the pie in the freezer for at least 5 to 6 hours to set. After this time, the pie will be partially set, but can be sliced. You can freeze it longer, and remove the pie about 20 minutes before serving, to slice easily. Serves 6-8.

    Ingredients 411: It is preferable to use unsoaked cashews because they have less moisture, and then can absorb some of the moisture from the strawberries as the pie sets. If using local seasonal berries, they tend to be softer and juicier than imported. Opt for another 2 tablespoons of cashews to help absorb the extra juices.
