I'm Cara a 21 year old student and desperately trying to go and stay raw.
Changing my life style however has not proved so simple. I have given up smoking and drinking but am finding it difficult to maintain the diet and balanced food-combinations due to a few major road blocks. Growing up in an Italian American household was basically the equivalent of living above a bar to an alcoholic, my family think I'm crazy seeing as cooking is a massive part of our culture. My friends also think I'm mental as well as my boyfriend who is meat-and french cooking crazy. A self-confessed former foodie, being around all of this cooking is quite hard to resist. The only thing keeping me going is realising the health benefits once I completely make the change.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to start?
