I don't consider myself to live extremely close to the Union Square Greenmarket, so I tend not to go down there for produce. But I should! I went there today to score some raw honey from Berkshire Berries, and I also picked up two zucchinis while looking around. Then I ended up buying some lacto-fermented sauerkraut from Hawthorne Valley Farms. I can't really say I've ever had sauerkraut, but I saw it was raw, and they offered as many tastes of their varieties as I wanted! Not bad. An acquired taste.

But, wait, why does it matter that the sauerkraut is raw? And, hey, the honey is raw, too? I began a raw food diet on Monday. Not to be confused with a raw vegan diet because I'm no vegan (no, I can't let you go, sashimi!) But I love this new and fun way of eating, especially because I hope it to cure a lot of my digestive issues and promote overall better health. I'd like to post more about my new raw lifestyle, but that I think will depend on interest. Interested?


  1. i'm interested! but you've really never had sauerkraut before?! wow... i guess it's not that weird but my mom would always make her own from cabbage in the garden so I guess I grew up with it around... not raw of course; i like mine warm :)

  2. I love the Farmer's Market, especially since I am lucky enough to have one only a few miles away from me. I would totally be interested if you reported about your raw lifestyle!
