Might have a RAW Living Survival Food Bar 300 cal gd fats or Raw Living Snack bar throughout day sometimes. --- For most days a large Romaine Salad n fixings or plain or with: shredded carrots, mushrooms, celery, cabbage, cucumbers lots just depends where I am. Hyvee, Panera Pread, Subway, Overseas Army--- I put my own olive oil/flax oil, chia seeds, flax seeds ground, celtic sea salt, Nutritional yeast powder (cheese like flavor) as my fixings. No more Burger King ha! Eating Vegetarian again since July 2010 on Army Deployment to Afghanistan of 1yr --- Vegan[masked] Army summer camp 24 days.

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

More ideas on food recipes. ____ Encouragers with lifestyle from others. _____ Meet new people who are also RAW/vegan. :) Or working that way. _____ I attended: One of these classes in Oct 2011 and it was great !!!

What Jackie M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love it and am excited to become more apart of it. Thank you for creating this group. It great even for those who are just curious and really want nothing to do with it. I will attend again. Life is just so busy. I am glad I attend one. I will be making cauliflower popcorn again. :)
