Hello from Missouraw!
Sorry, lame title-- it must be past my bedtime!
I'm a 30-year-old mom with a 5-year-old lifelong vegan son. I've been vegan for 8 years. I first became interested in raw foods about 7 years ago, and have been dabbling in them on and off since. My raw recipe books definitely get some use, and I'm conscientious of including a significant percentage of raw foods into our diets, but I can't call myself a raw-foodist. Lately, I've been gravitating more strongly toward the lifestyle, and joined the raw foods meetup nearby. I couldn't resist the delicious recipes and photos on this site, and just had to join for further inspiration.
Beyond that, I'm into natural parenting, reading, gardening, and movies (no TV). I'm not a Missourian... more of an Upper-Midwesterner (WI & MN, born in IL). My son was born in Arizona and he's also lived in CA, OR, GA and here with me.... poor kid! We've been here for 3 years, though.
I look forward to learning from this community, and I hope to contribute as well!
