Hello there! I’m a 24 y/o who is just about to start her second foray into raw foods. My first experience with raw foods was in May of this year—I jumped in, adored it all, and stayed about 90-95% for 3 months. Unfortunately, a flurry of social engagements, rising food costs and general discouragement got me off track and I’ve spent two months as a hard-core SAD eater.
I’m currently on my 8th day of a cleanse to help my body rid myself of the horrid junk food I’ve been eating for almost 2 months…and will start raw foods again on Saturday.
I’m SO incredibly excited. All throughout my cleanse I’ve turned down pizza, tacos, brownies, ice cream, and other treats with barely a sigh of regret. But last night my roommate made raw “mock salmon pate” and I thought I would cave right then and there. It looked and smelled AMAZING. I love raw foods, I love the lifestyle, and I love how I feel when raw.
And honestly, I’m really starting to enjoy this forum. I’ve been to some forums that are so incredibly hard-core…and I felt like if I even mentioned my morning cup of coffee I’d be virtually stoned. I appreciate the variety of people and opinions here and look forward to delving into the community!
