What up, yo?! Ich heisse Liz. I’m absolutely fascinated by raw veganism and aspire to be as close to 100% raw vegan as I can, one of these days. It’s tough living on a college campus that doesn’t have much to offer, food wise, for my lifestyle, so I’m only about 60% raw…
My sister has been vegetarian since she was 4 years old, so I’ve always been around a vegetarian lifestyle. It wasn’t until the summer of 2006 that I started looking into it myself. I started to despise my meat-eating way of life and all of the cruelty to animals that I was supporting. On July 7, 2006 I spit out my last piece of meat (grilled chicken, yuck!) and went vegetarian cold turkey. On August 10, 2006 after a good bit of research I went vegan. And I’m NEVER EVER EVER going back to animal products again :)
I also must say, that never would I have guessed that I’d be subscribing to a raw vegan website, but I am! I feel that going raw is the next step to ultimate health and well being. I’ve gone vegan for the animals, and now I’m going raw for me.
Besides my veganism… I love old cars and am the proud owner of a 1967 Ford Econoline pickup truck (hense my username). I have 13 cats (all rescued strays) that mean the world to me! 40 years from now I WILL be the crazy cat lady :) I’m currently a sophomore in college, majoring in Speech Pathology and Audiology and thinking about a minor in German. Homework is pretty much my life! :)
