Would like to participate in activities with others who eat or are interested in organic, raw, vegan, low fat food. I feel so much better and look so much younger since I have gone to a mostly fruit diet. I was on a 'gourmet' raw food diet for a while and it was a good transition to low fat raw vegan. Would like to see more emphasis on organic produce as the GMOs and synthetic pesticides used today are so detrimental to our mental and physical health, as well as our environment. The biggest trend in produce today is organic! People are waking up and demanding organic, non-GMO food. If the site is holding raw food events, they should also be organic.
Over the last 30 years I have been from macrobiotics to vegan to raw vegan. Now at 100% raw vegan, organic and follow the guidelines of 80-10-10. My current calorie intake is around 2500/day with between 5 and 7 % of those calories coming from fat.
Like the idea. Wish more people would use organic produce at the pot lucks and fix more low fat dishes. Seems that organic should be promoted with raw.
