Hi!!! I'm so excited I found you!!! I am enrolled in your courses and have completed some. While 100% raw is not doable for me right now I do eat raw quite a bit.
What I am really interested in is lowering the nut usage too. I have read Irish Moss is a great way to do this. There are not many recipes out there that use it. Have you thought about exploring into that?

Love your podcast! So happy I found you, I've been vegan for about 8 months now but I've just started eating fully raw and feeling great:)

Awesome Alexis - thanks for letting me know that you're listening :)

I'd love to know what an average day of eating looks like for you these days.

Hello! Another question: I was wondering which kind of water do you use? Do you have a water filter? If so, which kind? I use tap water because I don't like plastic bottles and plastic filters neither, and I don't want to spend $1000 or more on a filter that will take some space on my counter... So I haven't find my solution yet. Thank you for your tips if you have! xxx

Hi Laura,
Winter is coming here in Montreal and I'm getting attracted by hot cooked food... how do you handle being raw in winter? Vitamix raw hot soups are great but not 4 times a day 7/7... Thanks for your help and great ideas!

Good question, Laure. I def. love blender soups in the winter. Plus I find I use my dehydrator more (make things like veggie burgers). You can warm food up in the dehydrator, as well. Plus on the stove - just so it's warm on your pinkie finger, not hot (then it's still raw).
Also, add some spices to your food! Like chili powder or pepper.

Dear Laura, thank you so much for the inspiration. I am several attempts into eating vegan and specifically raw but I have no doubt that one day I will succeed. I have now downloaded this podcast so that whenever I am lacking motivation I can listen to you tell of your journey.

Hello Laura,

Thanks for sharing your story. It was very inspiring. I'm going into my second attempt of converting to raw foods. Just like you shared in your story, i think I might have gone at it a bit too hard the first time around but i made it for three weeks eating raw food. When I stopped it wasn't even really because I wanted to but we were in the process of moving and it became an inconvenience. So, I went back to convince food like pizza and other junk for a time and before I knew I had fallen off the wagon. However, I can't forget about how much better I was feeling while eating raw food and how much worse I felt after a just a few weeks of going back to processed food. In my first three weeks of eating raw foods I had lost 23 lbs and gotten rid of my joint pain. (I think mostly due to all of the water I was retaining from sodium and processed food.) I'm ready to get back into it now but I'm going to ease my way in a bi more this time. I have a food processor, juicer, and blender. My next goal is to obtain a dehydrator. So now all I need is some determination. Thanks for sharing all of your awesome recipes that make raw foods look way more appealing. Thanks to you, I think I can make this a forever change.

Jackie

When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

Hi Sharon! So glad to have you here :) Nice work with your course completions :)

We must be on the same wavelength because I have a bag of irish moss in my cupboard that I haven't even opened yet. You're inspiring me to experiment! More on this soon
