Today it is cashews, dates, apples, chia puddings, and pumpkin anything. In the summer it was berries and watermelon. Always subject to change.
I've been an on an off vegetarian for years, but have embraced the raw lifestyle for the past 4 months. I love it, but need some encouragement to stay on my path. I have tried eating cooked vegetables a couple of times recently, and I noticed a difference.
I have the most energy that I have had in years. My mind is clearer and I am sleeping better. People keep asking me what I am doing, as my appearance has changed. Skin clearer, hair shiny, teeth whiter, lost a few pounds. I am still hoping to have more improvement of my joint pain. Eating out and traveling have been a bit of a challenge, as limited choices can make the available food boring. I'm focusing on the company and surroundings as the primary parts of the experience.
I am enjoying experimenting with desserts, as I have a sweet tooth! I love trying new combinations of ingredients and letting my imagination take me to new tastes and textures.
I'm a nurse and massage therapist. I also like to write.
I have been living raw for 4 months and need encouragement to keep going and growing with it. Looking forward to meeting folks to share recipes and an occasional glass of juice and conversation!
Excellent! I would recommend that any vegan (raw or not) check it out. I'm looking forward to next month's meetup.
