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

Currently I am a brand spanking new vegan as of the first of the year. I was a vegetarian and decided to make the big step up. So far I'm loving every minute of it! I tried it before and it was hard. This time it wasn't. It's all your mind-set!

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

I'm anxious to meet other vegans!

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

I have fiber issues. ~evil grin~

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

I am new to the world of raw food dishes, so no specific of yet.


Hi! I'm Essie. I'm a mom of 5 four-legged furry kids who are constantly testing me. :) I work as a customsbroker by day, and have a website biz that I work at night that sells pet memorial products. I enjoy biking, hiking, and anything outdoors!

What Essie A. is saying about this Meetup Group

Looking forward to the next one I can attend! It's a great way to meet new people, share ideas on food prep, and just to relax and enjoy an evening of learning something new!
