For more information email Amme at broadbeanamme@ gmail.com or phone Sally on 03 548 8403 or 021 170 9443 Nelson women Sally Rees and Amme Hiser are so keen on not cooking they've started a group to encourage others to do the same. Both advocates of raw food diets, Sally and Amme have started the Raw Food Network, a support group for people who prefer their food uncooked. Sally said the idea was for people to get together and share ideas, recipes and, of course, food. It's to support each other because it's quite hard to go completely raw,'' Sally said. Both Sally and Amme believe raw food diets offer huge benefits. Sally said raw food is delicious and more nutritious than the cooked kind. It's the enzymes in raw food that are really valuable,'' she said. Amme said she loved the energy she got from raw food. It's more than you'd expect. It's weird,'' she said. Amme, who is the manager of the Nel- son Farmers Market, said eating a raw diet need not be expensive. You can do so much with sprouts. You can make pates, put them in smoothies and put them in crackers,'' she said. Both women said they were looking for- ward to learning more about eating raw when chef Sarah Lees visited Nelson next week. Sarah, who is raw food expert, will be doing demonstrations at Nelson's Far- mers Market on Wednesday April 3 from 12.30pm till 1.30pm and 2.30pm till 3.30pm. Donations appreciated.
