First of all we want to announce that we have had quite some technical problems on Facebook which led to the only solution to create a new facebook page. Our name is The Raw Food Sisters (same as before) and you will find us when you are logged in on facebook and search for us. The problem is when you write facebook.com/therawfoodsisters you will find our OLD page. Therefore, you have to be logged in to be able to find us. The old account will be deleted within two weeks and then we will change so that our  new page will be facebook.com/therawfoodsisters. Hope it is not too confusing! So with that said, the easiest way to find us is simply to log in and type The Raw Food Sisters and give us a massive like and send all your good vibes 🙂 We love to connect with you. We are posting quite frequently over there so come and spread your love!

What do you think about the pics above? We think they speak to us so clearly and in a very powerful way. In the end we have to live. Not only breathe and think this is all that is. Life is the greatest journey. A never ending one filled with passion, love and new adventures. We have to live and experience. We are all newbies in the beginning and that is the most important part to realize. How would we otherwise evolve and become more and more of the person we are meant to be for each day that passes? We are supposed to feel a bit scared and go outside our comfort zone . Push our limits, but by doing it step by step we will at the same time keep our courage with us. We all have to start somewhere and the more we slowly stretch our minds – the further we can go!

GHANA a dream come true

Hello beloved friend,

How are you doing today? We hope that your week has started off in the best way possible. Amsterdam has not shown its best side these past two days with constant rain. So today we are hiding the rains with warm mint teas at one of our favorite coffee bars meanwhile we are working. At the moment we have an overload of work and planning to do. A lot of things are going on as you might know and we have been quite busy lately which also has its reasons. We are feeling very inspired and excited about our up-coming projects and feel its about time to share our exhilaration also with you! 🙂

First we want to begin by saying that we never ever thought that we would be where we are now. Our lifestyle transformation going raw vegans just some months ago have opened up new doors for us and we are still amazed how everything has unfolded with such a great timing. For us this is the realization of our dreams. We are not just connecting with so many loving people worldwide but our new healthy lives have also led to other positive things. Our new clean lifestyles have made us more conscious and we are always looking for healthy food choices. In the early spring an idea came to us about sundried tropical fruits. We started to play with the idea to have our own brand and production of sundried tropical fruits and we got so into it that we could not leave this idea behind. Instead we started to talk about our ideas with people. For some magic reasons we happened to talk to the right people with the right contacts at the right time. So here we are setting up our own sundried mango production in Ghana! Is not this universe simply amazing?! Dream. Believe. Receive.

In mid-July we will be going to Ghana to initiate a first pilot project. During this process we also want to incorporate you in our jorney we are undertaking so that you will be able to follow what is going on out in the field. It is so easy to forget but there is always an individual behind every bite of food we eat in the western world. We want to give the often forgotten farmers in remote areas in the world attention. The farming and in our case mango is their livelihood and they put a lot of effort and love into it. Sadly they donnot get sufficient income for it and barely make it to go around. Our sundried mango project will support community development and is a step to take farmers out of poverty. The farmers are waiting for us and we cannot wait to go there to get this started for real!

What do you think? Are you as excited as we are? 😀 New adventures are around the corner and we are thrilled to have you on our journey as well! There is so much love to be spread in our world.

Therefore, today´s powerful words by Howard Thurman goes perfectly with our main purpose, to Live our Dreams and Breathe our Passion:

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

With all our love,
Julie & Katrin
