Those of you who have been following Raw Food Switch for awhile have seen the Raw Food Transition Carnivals.

Well, I’m kind of sad and happy to say that the Raw Food Transition Carnival is going on hiatus. I might decide to revive it at some point if there is interest, but for now consider it on vacation.

The circus folks decided to go outside, enjoy the sunshine, and forage for greens to make green smoothies. Go figure!
