Hello folks. I'm from England and just joined. I'm a vegan but not a raw one.I hope it is ok to join not being a raw vegan? I have been interested in raw veganism/raw food/wholefoods for awhile now. My inspiration has come from two raw vegans in Iceland- Jonsi from Sigur Ros and his American partner Alex. Their recipes are simply divine! I haven't an electric blender so unable to make most of their recipes but me and a friend made their coconut strawberry pie with a hand one and it was gorgeous- like a vegan cheesecake! Even my mother loved it! I could tell by how quick she ate it lol.
I am suffering from chronic eczema and have been researching into wholefood and raw food diets and seen many testimonies online that it clears up eczema for life! I have been feeling for awhile now that this is the diet I need to adopt. I don't know if I'll go 100% raw but certainly wholefood (I will start this next week). I cannot afford an electric blender as yet as sadly I am unemployed.I do have a smoothie maker so will be making lots of fresh fruit smoothies. I will do my next grocery shopping next week and will be going wholefood (with a good proportion raw) thereon.
I made a divine fruit smoothie earlier with organic banana and cherries with pineapple juice. That is my starter. For dinner I'm having (organic)lentils and steamed broccoli, carrots, cabbage, onion, potato (all organic) with some V8 vegetable juice as stock. Not raw but at least wholefood!
For the time being I will have as much raw as I can- in the form of salads and fruit smoothies.
I will be getting a blender and juicer when I can afford them.
Hello all! I am just venturing into the world of eating raw and found this site through a search on, of all things, whether or not Larabars are all raw! I'm glad to have found a forum to browse through and learn/ask questions. My name is Tirzha and I live in Colorado with my husband and daughter. Looking forward to getting to know you all and steal a little knowledge from you :)
Hi! I am 14 years old and I want to go raw! I have been eating vegetarian for about 3 years full time now, and been vegan on and off for about a year. I really think the idea of going raw is fantastic! I love cooking and fiddling in the kitchen, so it sounds perfect for me!
The only problem is that my family doesn't understand things like vegetarianism and veganism. They think that I can just eat meat if there is no other option. But it isn't only that I don't want to eat meat, it is really an ethical dilemma for me. I wihs they understood!
Am I the only one who has an unsupportive family?
I'm Nikki, Hi! :) I'm in Toronto, Ontario.
I'm not eating 100% raw or anything... Or even 75% raw yet...
But I've gone back and forth with cutting meat out of my diet, and recently cut it out all together. (Still eating egg/some dairy, but gradualy removing that also.)
I bake a lot, so doing the whole "vegetarian" thing with baking is a new challenge.
I have been adding more and more raw foods into my diet as much as I can, and it's been great! :) I'm not sure if I'm going to go vegan at any point in the near future, but it's nice to find a little community for discussion on raw matters! :)
