Our group is growing in leaps and bounds: With over 800 members we have become quite a force! I hope if you're not currently active that you will consider coming to one of our fun, educational, tasty events! Contact me if you have questions. Welcome!
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.!
Whether you are already enjoying the raw food lifestyle -- or just want to learn more -- our group is supportive and I learn something new at each meeting. Come once and you will want to join us every time!
Hi Sheree and welcome to Fuel! You are a great addition to the group as you are a perfect example of fueling your body through a raw diet. Look forward to seeing you at future events!
Hi, Sheree! I'm currently on a juice fast. Do you have any events scheduled for after February 21st? I'd love to come to a raw food event! :)
This is right up my alley!!! I'm always looking for more people who eat like me! :)
I am really interested in the unplug and recharged program, but can't make the Monday meeting. Please let me know what I can do :) thanks!!!
Hello Sheree! Thanks for the welcome and for starting this meetup group. I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to eating raw foods, but I welcome the idea of learning about it. This group will allow me to meet others and to educate myself more.
Hi Sheree! Sounds like we do have a lot in common! I signed up for you juicing class which I am really looking forward to! I have been doing some juicing already but I know your class will totally enhance my pursuit and introduce more variety! I cannot tell you how excited I am to learn more about raw food, nutrition and meeting people that are pursuing the same lifestyle! This is an awesome opportunity! I am really looking forward to meeting you!
Thanks for the welcome! I have so many questions but I'm hoping that you (or you know somebody who can) can help me with the biggest question I have right now. I'm training for a marathon that is in two months so I'm running a lot of miles. Does your group have any marathoners/runners that could give me some tips on what to eat? I don't think I'm getting enough carbs and calories to fuel my run but I don't want to give up. Thanks. My email if that is easier is [masked]
Thanks for the welcome Sheree, I am busy trying to get ready for winter down here in Greenfield. I look forward to this winter and attending your meetings. Scott
Thank you Sheree,
I look forward to attending meetings in the future and gaining new knowledge and meeting new people. Brent
Hey, I'm back! Got my old name back and a new address! And, I'm ready to refocus on taking care of ME! It will be good to see you!
