no longer a new rawbie! what a difference a year makes, i have to say. it’s been some crazy ride, and i even got a point when i thought that my beloved experiment had come to an end. amazingly, i saw my way through it, and i’m still truckin. living like a raw foodist isn’t easy all the time, and it has complicated some things that used to be simple. but! most importantly, it forced me to confront many issues in my life that were in direct opposition to my ideal way of being. it’s hard to be a raw foodist and a big old hypocrite. i think raw food is good for the soul, and good for the mentality of an inquisitive and thoughtful ever-developing person. i have been unbelievably impressed by the qualities that many raw foodists seem to share. it’s been wonderful listening to all y’all.

4.3.07 update: i’m on month four of my raw-food adventure, and even though i’ve had moments of extreme (!) temptation, all is going very well so far.
i’m definitely having a bit of a hard time talking to, and telling people about my lifestyle switch though, so if you have any advice/support/similar experiences, i’m looking for all the input i can get.
