My husband are I are interested in becoming raw vegans for health, ethics, and environment, but none of our friends or family are raw vegans. We are vegetarians who eat mostly raw vegan, but sometimes cooked, and sometimes dairy in things when we eat out (and feel guilty for it...we'd rather not eat any tortured dairy) -- we'd like to be all raw, all vegan. A major reason for joining is that if we have kids, we want to raise them raw vegan, so they'll need friends who are, too (and so will we!). We've imagined scenarios where they don't have raw vegan friends, and so they get made fun of for their school lunch, or nobody wants to come over because their parents never have "real" food. Knowing raw vegans will be a positive influence for our kids, ourselves, and our friends and family. Both of my parents have already expressed an interest in going to a raw potluck with us, so that is good news. I'm hoping more family and friends will gain interest and join, too.
My hubby and I are both vegetarians interested in learning more about raw food lifestyle.
