Hello fellow raw vegans! I’ve been raw now for about seven weeks this time. I was raw for pretty much all of 2004 then went back to cooked foods. Since that time, I discovered that I have a number of food allergies (wheat, soy, dairy) and am sensitive to sugar (cane, maple, corn) and dye. So, after several months of struggling with what to eat, what to eat and feeling like crap, I woke up one morning and decided I needed to be raw again. Last time, I was challenged with a low energy level, possibly because I wasn’t eating enough of the right types of foods. So, this time, after a little research, I decided to incorporate green smoothies into my diet. I hope this does the trick!
Being raw this time is so much easier. Maybe it’s because I’m more relaxed with it and know how to whip up something delicious in a matter of minutes. I found some new staples from the recipes on this site, as well. Maybe I can contribute some favorites from my files.
By the way, the picture was taken when I was raw in 2004 at the age of 45. I’m now 48… and since I resumed raw I pretty much look the same.
Anyway, I’m happy that this board exists!
