Hi! I learned about the raw vegan lifestyle sometime last fall (2007) after a few months going from SAD to more or less vegan. I have lost 20 lbs. since easter 2007 just increasing the amount of raw vegan foods into my diet. I am not 100% anything but am on a joyful journey to a raw vegan lifestyle. I live in Northern Norway – a naturally beautiful area but I am pretty alone in my raw food ways (except for my fiance who happily tests all of my experiments!) Otherwise I am a classically trained musician and in addition to playing I administrate and teach in a music school. I am so pleased to have discovered this great website and am looking forward to being a part of this network!
