Hey Everyone, here's some stuff about me:
When I decided to go vegan (a few months back after a few months of vegetarianism) I looked into to what seems like every vegan resource on the internet and got sidetracked by all the offshoots like raw foodism!
My aim is not to go 100% raw, I think there's a lot to be said for the movement but it's not my personal goal. I currently eat about 50% raw and I'd like to increase the percentage a bit, as well as work on eliminating things like caffeine and refined flour/sugar etc.
Even though I dont eat all raw, I eat at least 90% fresh and unprocessed.
I LOVE to cook, I spend at least an hour in the kitchen every day and at least that again researching recipes and putting my own together.
One of my main aims in the next two years is to travel (EVERYWHERE) spending time on farms and in alternative cultures, learning about local foods and lifestyles and how my ideas can fit in with theirs.
I love this site because other people's eating habits intrigue me (I studied nutrition for a bit and now I'm a bit of a nut - I'm the only person I know who gets a kick out of watching people empty their shopping baskets at shops and markets.)
I wont lie, I come for the recipes! The more people restrict their diets, the more creative they get.
I'm 22 and a student in Melbourne, Australia, I major in Marine Biology and Ecology.
I've gotten really involved in gender politics over the last couple of years as well as in environmental movements - I dig a concept called 'ecofeminism' (I just used the word 'dig', sue me.)
I ride horses, or I used to before I moved to the city for uni. I grew up on a farm so I'm fully acquainted with all of the practices I now stand against. My parents don't love the feminism or the leftist politics, but they'll get used to it.
That's definitely enough from me.
