Welcome to my world

I grew up in New Orleans but moved to Kansas 14 years ago (I missed Katrina). I became interested in raw foods when Jenna of the great blog Eat, Live, Run ate at a raw foods restaurant and reviewed Ani Phyo's book. The food sounded so fresh and vibrant that I wanted to try it. Of course, Topeka has no raw foods restaurants so I bought the book and dove right in. If any of you have suggestions for reading materials on the healthy lifestyle, raw food, vegetarian, yoga, exercise and fitness, etc. just let me know.


Today I found a raw food meeting group in Kansas City and a couple of veg/raw groups in Lawrence. I'll be going to a potluck in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to meeting some new people.


  1. Welcome, Johanna! Of course, all the wonderful blogs out there are a great resource. For raw food I would go to Gena of Choosing Raw and Heather of Heather Eats Almond Butter (she's not raw, but has lovely meal ideas). For yoga, yogaisyummy.net, Heather again, and Maggie from Say Yes to Salad. Fitnessista for fitness and exercise. The Broccoli Hut for vegetarian foods. Hope this all helps :)

  2. Johanna,
    Welcome to the world of blogging. It is such an amazing community, and I'm so excited you've decided to start your own blog. Thanks for your sweet email earlier today, and I can't wait to read more. :)
