Raw focuses more on pure organic food that hasn’t been heated above a certain degree because heat tends to destroy healthy nutrients. Gena has a really good explanation on her superamazing site: http://www.choosingraw.com/the-lifestyle/
One important difference between vegan and raw is that some people on raw diets aren’t vegan and they eat things like raw fish sushi. Make sure you stick with resources, recipes and websites like Gena’s that are both vegan and raw. 🙂
Raw vegans don’t eat any processed foods and from what I understand, they don’t cook anything over a certain temperature or at all. I find it interesting as well, but I don’t think it’s something I’d be able to do. However, there is a raw cafe near me that I went to once. The food was pretty expensive for these teeny portions, but very filling since everything is nutrient dense. They also use a lot of nuts in their food.
