|We currently use a mix of raw, freeze-dried raw, dehydrated raw, and canned. Kaylee will eat anything, but Amelia is picky. Brands of freeze-dried/dehyrdated raw we have tried include Stella & Chewy's (their favourite), The Honest Kitchen (another favourite), and Primal (they didn't like it much). I think Amelia prefers canned because she can smell it better, but she likes THK and Stella & Chewy's as well. She is the pickiest with raw food, I think because her sense of smell isn't as good.
For awhile, I was worried about not having food down all day for them, so I USED to feed the Stella & Chewy's without water added. Now I add water, and they both eat better. I definitely suggest adding water because cats need the moisture.
I wouldn't worry too much about including freeze-dried raw. As long as it is from a reputable company and has a good protein/fat/carbs ratio, I think it is good. I always try to do the best for my cats, and if I could do it 100%, I would feed raw, but they seem to have other plans! LOL. So, to me, high quality freeze-dried, dehydrated, and canned are the next-best thing! Good luck!
