If the words "raw food" sound harsh to you, you probably have not yet been introduced to Arnold Kauffman. Bursting with positive energy, Arnold, who runs a raw food cafe called "Arnold's Way" in Lansdale, PA, has devoted over a decade to the raw food way of life and has inspired many others to follow in his footsteps. His colorful array of smoothies, pies, souls, and pizzas reveal the variety of delicious foods that can be made from natural, vegetarian ingredients - without any cooking at all. WHYY’s Friday Arts meets with Arnold as he explains the logic behind the diet and its numerous health benefits.
