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

Moving toward 70% raw as well as gluten free, dairy free, caffeine free, soy free and sugar free.

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

Want to develop my dehydrating skills!

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

Support - How to get over that I have to bring my own food to lunch meetings and social gatherings. How to deal with people who don't understand that I am not going to eat gluten containing food any more because it makes me sick.

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

I made a fabulous raw carrot cake and a really tasty Zesty Quinoa salad.


I have been working toward a diet of 70% raw since last March so I am interested in continuing to learn all I can about tasty, quick and easy recipes for busy people.
