Hi there!My journey into the raw food lifestyle started about two months ago after going to the doctors and getting yet another perscription. I’ve been spending a small fortune on perscriptions and I didn’t seem to be getting any healthier. I was taking medicines for depression, asthma and trying to loose weight. I’ve been married to a wonderful man now for almost 6 years and have two toddler boys. Three people in my family have recently had gastric bypass surgery including my mom. This honestly scared me into taking a real look at my current eating habits and lifestyle. I came to a place in my life where I was mentally ready for a lifestyle change
I started researching every free minute I had on detoxing, fasting and excitingly, raw foods. Eating raw foods to your improve your health seemed like such a simple concept that make so much sense. I felt like I had one of those eye opening “duh” moments and decided this was the right path for me.
In the two months now I’ve lost about 20lbs and am about 90% raw.Though I still have ways to go I’m really encouraged to stick with a raw food lifestyle. Some days seem so hard as I don’t know anyone else that is raw or even vegan, and there are no juice bars or raw food restaurants anywhere near my city. I am trying to grow my own sprouts for the first time, but not really sure what to do with them :) I read postings on this site everyday as the words of encouragement that people share is so wonderful and makes me feel like maybe I”m not so alone in this journey. So I thought it was time to just say HI! :)
