My name is Deborah “Debbie” Marsh, creator of Raw-Riffic Food, and the self-published author of two raw food recipe books. My interest in the raw food diet and lifestyle started in 2007 when I was searching for natural and holistic methods of healing myself from chronic back pain, arthritis, and IBS. I started blogging around the same time, and created the Raw-Riffic Food site, as well as supporting blogspots to share information, inspiration, resources, and recipes for those interested in the raw food diet and lifestyle. I am a wife, mother, artist, and long-time employee of Wisdom Natural Brands™, the parent company of two highly respected consumer brands, SweetLeaf Sweetener® and Wisdom of the Ancients® tea. I live in Arizona.
