How long have you been interested in raw food?

For about 2 years though I haven't been eating raw for all those 2 years. I've just been trying to incorporate the lifestyle. I'm interested in new recipes that are not loaded with fat even if it is a raw fat. My background is in science so I'm a skeptic when it comes to miracle like claims from any food. I try to practice evidence based nutrition. From my experience, if it really is that beneficial for us, researchers will definitely be writing about it.

Why would you like to join this group? What would like to achieve or learn by joining this group?

My main reason for joining this group is for the social support aspect. Personally speaking, it's hard to keep up a vegan and raw diet when I only have 1 friend who shares my views. So I'm joining to meet like minded individuals :) I'd like to pick up some new recipes from this group, too.

Some people just forget to RSVP, however this group is always well attended. Join us every 2nd Wednesday and the 4th Thursday of each month. You will love it!

I think I can make it tonight (6/27) and I'll probably just bring a fruit salad my first time :)

Introduction

I'm Jacob and I've only been in Houston for a 3 years. I go to school in the med center and I've always been a proponent of eating healthy to be healthy. Eating vegan makes sense to me for health and humane reasons but I'm not 100% vegan yet.
