Tourles isn't trying to convert anyone to an all-raw diet, though; the idea behind Raw Energy is to give people healthy snack alternatives to the vending machine or drive-thru though there are plenty of good reasons to go raw. "You get more energy and your immune system will be boosted," notes Tourles, "and your appearance will also be dramatically enhanced by long-term use of raw foods."
Tourles will give a demonstration and provide samples as well as sign Raw Energy tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street. Call 303-436-1070 or visit www.tatteredcover.com.
