How would you like to benefit from this group?

I just watched a few documentaries to help me mentally. I'm hoping to talk and listen to problems when starting, how to overcome them, and how to stay vegan around meat-eaters (family, friends, job!!!!) How!!!??? Also, I'm a grad student on a budget, how can I afford this?

How much experience with whole food plant based cooking do you have... beyond salad, that is?

Not much, all I can think about when I need a quick meal is to grab a salad. : / And all I can think about is that everything will cost too much.

Do you have any food allergies? If so, what are they?

No

Introduction

I am a 34 year old travelling ESL teacher and I have tried Vegan in the past and failed each time. Living abroad is hard without options as the US. So, I hope to try a raw diet challenge for myself for 60 days and hope to create a routine for life.
