When I started looking into raw food it hadn’t really occurred to me that I already eat a lot of raw food. Specifically in the form of fruit and fruit salads. Summer is the perfect time to indulge and this year I have even better blessed with a small crop of raspberries from my garden.

As someone who was not born with green fingers and whose main gardening strategy is somewhat laissez-faire (otherwise known as neglect, interspersed with 2 days a year where I have a sudden burst of energy), this little bowl represents a miracle.

Although credit is also due to my  4 legged friend who has gallantly started to earn his keep by scaring off the birds who thieved the entire crop last year:

Admittedly he doesn’t look too scary in the above, but I assure you appearances can be deceptive and he is really a furry killing machine…
