Going Raw...Where to Start???

Thinking of eating raw for 7 days, 10 days or even 30 days but don't know where to start?  This has been asked of me on numerous occasions.   I will be doing another 30 days 100% raw beginning June 1.  The reason for this blog is to help with anyone interested in joining me whether it be for 7 days, 10 days or for the whole 30 days.  Today I will post some of the staple ingredients on my shopping list.  When I first went raw the only appliance I owned was a blender.  I later added a food processor.  Both of these are good to have to create your meals.  If I had to choose between the two I would say the blender is a must!  I use my blender every morning for smoothies.
First I'll start with my shopping list.  These are the items that I started my raw food challenge with and I continue to by them regularly.  Most of my shopping is done at Trader Joe's.

Raw shopping list
Agave (sweetener)
Nama Shoyu (raw soy sauce)  Trader Joe's does not sell this
Sea Salt
Cold Pressed Olive Oil
Toasted Sesame Oil (not raw)
Kelp Noodles (Trader Joe's does not sell this)
Fresh garlic
2 bunches of fresh kale for Kale Salad(Trader Joe's does not sell this) Whole Foods 

Fresh Spinach
Green Onions
Raw Almonds
Raw Cashews
Fruits for smoothies (I buy frozen):
Bananas (peeled and frozen)
Almond Milk (I like Vanilla flavored)

Hope this helps!  
If you haven't already, check out GuRaw's Facebook page.  There's a wealth of information there!  Please don't  hesitate to ask questions.  If there's a recipe you want me to post, just ask!  Because, as Diana Stobo says, "Sharing is Sexy".
Make it with love!!!
