Hi guys! I suppose I just start with the basics, huh?
I'm 19 years old (20 in like a month), from Australia. I've been very happily vegan for 5 years. I'm currently attempting recovery (again) from an eating disorder, and I've always had an interest in raw food, so I thought this would be a gentle, healthy way to ease myself back into actually eating. I actually did the same thing with my veganism. I was very sick, and very thin, and wanted to badly to get better, but the thought of having "all that food" scared the crap out of me. I ended up stumbling onto some information on veganism and it was like a switch was flipped. I knew straight away that was perfect for me. It really helped me out of a bad place.
But now, I know all the "junk foods" a vegan can have, and because its been so long, it seems like "all that food" all over again. A new way of eating gets me so excited about food, and creating, and experimenting that its easier for me to focus on being healthy, rather than being thin.
I'm really excited to be here.
