I am almost 100% raw (translation: once in a while you just gotta eat popcorn at the movies, and although beer isn't really raw, I do like a cold one now and then!) I was a vegetarian for 14 years before going raw vegan.
To make friends/share what I have learned so far. I graduated from Living Light Culinary and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Through my training (as well as trial and error) I have gained a lot of knowledge, but everyday I learn more!
I tend to be an "emotional eater." I like food (who doesn't?!) and sometimes use it as a substitute for other things. I also struggle with overeating when I find things I really like (I can seriously knock back a lot of raw cheesecake!)
I have lots of favorites and they change all the time! I am always juicing something, I like to make fresh salad dressings. Deserts are a downfall: I love anything made with dates.!
Our group is growing in leaps and bounds: With over 1000 members we have become quite a force! I hope that you will consider coming to one of our fun, educational, tasty events! Contact me if you have questions. Welcome!
