Hi! Just wanted to do a brief introduction before I dive into this wonderful community :)
I have been vegetarian/vegan most of my life, it is just what my body prefers, I have been interested in eating raw for quite some time and have finally decided to make the commitment a few weeks ago. And let me just say...WOW! I feel frikin awesome. I have little to no digestion issues anymore, and I struggle less with overeating, though I am still in transition and cravings have led me to the imminent nut binge (whatevs...it happens).
I have been studying health, wellness, and how diet effects our mental and physical well being for quite some time, and am actually working towards my masters in counseling to begin a wellness center with those very values in mind.
My other interests include bikeing ( i drive a pedicab, and my bike is my main form of transportation), swimming, yoga, playing in the sun, and of course...food! Oh and I'm really into underground hip hop, but i'll save that for another forum ;)
