Describe your current eating style, example: vegetarian, standard American diet, about 50% raw, etc...

I'm eating about 90% raw right now.

What do you hope to get out of raw food Meetups?

I want to meet others with the same lifestyle as me to support me in this new life!

What are the biggest challenges facing you with regard to your eating habits?

Social settings--friends and family.

Do you have a favorite raw food dish or recipe? If so, what is it?

Anything with blueberries and bananas!


I've been vegetarian for two years and I'm just transitioning to a fully raw vegan diet. I'm a freelance environmental writer and work for The Nature Conservancy. I'm a lifelong resident of Iowa and love hiking, camping, and live music.
