In The Raw Food World, The Grass Isn’t Always Greener Down South

It seems just about every raw foodist I know has pined for a winter in the tropics at some point.

And why not? Everyone deserves a bit of fresh jackfruit and sunshine once in awhile.

But after yesterday's review, I received a bunch of emails that expressed two misconceptions I've heard from a lot of health seekers.

1) Thinking that the only realistic way to succeed on a raw food diet is to live in the tropics.

2) Thinking that equatorial countries are paradisiacal.

The fact is that if you live in the US, Canada, or much of Europe, you've got some advantages that, for all its sunshine and fruit, the tropics often can't match.

In today's blog post I talk about some of the downsides of the tropics, and why living in the north really isn't so bad.
