I'm hoping that I can meet people who have been successful with this lifestyle for a long time - that would inspire me to continue eating this way and living this life. I also hope to just learn more about preparing raw foods and I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy my favorite foods. Overall, it would be great to have extra support since there aren't a lot of people in my life who live this way or agree with it.
I started eating in May. I was just finishing my first year of teaching and I was sick for the majority of the year, due to stress, lack of exercise and a poor diet. I decided enough was enough, and I started to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet. I noticed right away that I had more energy and I was feeling stronger and stronger every day. That was the boost I needed to do more research on it. After reading a few books I became determined to try out this lifestyle. Every day I feel better and better about what I'm eating and I feel like I'm finally fueling my body in a way that is smart and healthy.
Community raw meals, times to meet up with other raw foodists to talk about challenges and successes with the diet.
I'm in the process of moving right now..... but maybe in the future!
Hello! My name is Katie and I am in the beginning stages of my raw food lifestyle. I've been loving it so far and I hope that I can meet others that will continue to inspire me!
