Describe your current eating style, example: vegetarian, standard American diet, about 50% raw, etc...

Currently I'm probably 75% raw. I've been a vegetarian for quite some time. I have days when I give into my cravings, but seem to be able to get back on track relatively easily - probably because I feel so good when I am eating raw & avoiding junk!

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

I hope to get advise as to how others maintain their raw diets. I'd like recipe ideas and information on the best places to shop. I'd like to hear about the health benefits people have experienced by going raw.

What are the biggest challenges facing you with regard to your eating habits?

My biggest challenges to eating raw & organic is living about 30 miles from Des Moines where I would have greater acess to fresh foods, especially in the Winter months. And, in this colder climate, just the desire for warm food.

Do you have a favorite raw food dish or recipe? If so, what is it?

No answer yet


I joined the meetup group to find some kindred spirits and support in my quest to move to a raw food diet. Thus far, I've relied on books to give me the information I need about a raw food diet. I have no freinds or family interested eating raw.
