When the average American has 150 pounds of sugar per person per year, 55 pounds of white flour and 53 gallons of soda, 23 pounds of pizza, 24 pounds of artificial sweeteners, 2.7 pounds of salt, I’m trying to get people to eat just a little bit more real food. 

And raw is a great idea, but it’s far along the continuum.  We should just be eating real food.  If it’s raw or cooked, I’m happy if people just eat real food.
