I have been a vegetarian for at least 5 years now, although I've lost track of exactly how long it has been. It decided to take it a step further back in February 2011 and went vegan. I went vegan for animal rights reasons, health, & for the environment. My reasons were three-fold, although the main one was because I didn't want to contribute to animal cruelty. I felt amazing as a vegan. I believe it has helped me quit smoking, which I did in April 2011. I truly believe this healthy lifestyle helped me to conquer my addiction. It feels great to be doing what I know is right and also be reaping the health benefits. I got very interested in natural health as a result of this and as I studied information on the topic, I started coming across info. on raw foods. I flirted with the idea of trying raw foods but wasn't ready yet. Then at the beginning of October 2011, I just knew it was the time. I felt completely comfortable in my vegan lifestyle and my intuition was telling to take it a step further. The first week of October I started a raw vegan cleanse. It was to be an experiment, as I was curious how eating only raw foods would effect me. I also wanted to cleanse my body. After a week on raw foods, I felt so incredible I didn't want to forfeit the benefits. I extended my raw food diet to go throughout the month of October. However, over the holidays I went back to just eating a regular vegan diet, although I continued to eat more fruits than I had before. Then in 2012 when it became summer again, amidst trying to lose a little weight I naturally gravitated back toward raw foods subconsciously. I was feeling great once again and decided to adopt a high raw vegan lifestyle. I wasn't be 100% raw but I'd say about 80%. Then last fall, I started feeling a bit off and tried adding some starches and grains to my diet, which was fine until around the holidays I started to miss that light feeling that being raw gives. I saw that FullyRaw Kristina was doing a raw food challenge starting in January. Right on the day after Christmas, I decided to get in on the challenge and am now on raw foods again and interested to see how it goes.

I could use more LFRV recipes as well as ideas for fitting in at social situations. I also would like to meet and/or converse with other raw vegans.
