What would you like to learn and experience by participating in this group?

I would like to meet more raw foodists, share wonderful food and recipes and gain support for my own journey on the raw and living food lifestyle. I also have much to share and teach others.

How did you get interested in raw foods and health?

My brother-in-law and his wife introduced us to the lifestyle in July 2009. I was so impressed that I started eliminating processed and cooked foods from my diet.


I was introduced to the Raw/Vegan Lifestyle in July 2009. I first worked through Elissa Cohen's Living on Live Food philosophy and started losing weight and health challenges that had plagued my life and health for so many years.

What Laurie Jenks H. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group of folks. We look forward to the next event.

    Laurie, I cannot find the contact information for the wonderful lady who sold me the alkalizing balls for my water. Can you give me her contact information so that I may pay for those, I have not yet paid for them. Thank you! :)

    I hadn't joined SAT raw veg because I thought I'd be looking at meetups I'd never attend but at a veg meetup in Austin there was interest in taking a trip to SAT for a potluck. Short story long I think that I'll be coming down if I don't get scheduled to work.

    Hi! I live off of bulverde road and wetmore road, near thousand oaks on the northeast side of s.a. I was Checking out containers at work (Target) and we sell 2, kinda like the one you have but one is round like a ball with a smaller opening at the top. Would this make it "brew" better or is a larger top better for venilation?
