Just What Does a "Raw Food" Bagel Taste Like?

Welcome to Crunch, where Chow Bella contributor Nina Gruber is exploring healthy eating options -- and reporting back. This week: the Raw Food movement.

Most of us eat a little bit of raw food every day: a salad here, some carrots there, maybe some dehydrated kale chips. But some people take this tendency to a new level, resorting to only consuming raw food, all the time, exclusively. Though the thought of it may make the readers hungry at the lack of substance, this is a very real and very significant movement of food lovers. This diet is nothing to be scared of, though daunting, Raw Foodism can be tasty.
