Hey, I’m a 15 year old vegan girl, turning fruitarian from NZ.
I haven’t eaten raw before, though I have read up on it for a while. I’m aiming to be fruitarian (starting tomorrow). I want to be fruitarian because of the health benefits, and because it is the most kindest lifestyle I can imagine. I don’t like the idea of a plant dying when vegetables are taken from it, even if they don’t feel. I’m pretty confident in this diet because eating fruit and nuts provides all the nutrients I did (apart from b12, which i dont exactly do)
I’m eating fruit and nuts atm, but I’m not sure if i’ll include nuts in the long run.
I just went for a shop and brought a honeydew melon, some kiwis, organic apples, grapes, a tamarillo and a few dates and also some raw almonds, macadamias, pecans and cashews. (Is this an alright mix? Not to sure if I have enough variety, I’m only allowed to spend $40 a week on food)
I’m going 2 get some cucumbers and peppers later on in the week. I’m also trying to incorporate bananas and avocados in my diet thru smoothies and sorbets (is frozen food allowed?) 2, but they really make me gag. Are they necessary to be healthy?
Sorry for all the questions (kinda worried i’ll do it wrong, lol)
I’ve just pigged out on soy ice cream and chocolate sauce and cake LOL Hopefully the detox won’t be 2 painful.
Anyway, thanxs for reading looking forwards to been a part of the raw community :)
