30 Days Raw My Way

I decided for various & sundry reasons to return to my raw vegan lifestyle. Having been 100% raw vegan for 3 1/2 years before wandering back to the land of the cooked, I missed all the raw vegan yumminess I’d experienced (both physically & on my plate), not to mention all the aches, pains & ills that drop in on me for a visit (& never seem inclined to LEAVE) when not raw. I’ll be honest: I’ve flip-flopped on raw for the last year. I started all raw then stopped, then started, then stopped, then started…. You get the picture. I noticed what was missing was a real COMMITMENT to the process! I’d say I was going raw until the first plate of fried rice, rice & beans or sopapillas drifted across my consciousness & then I was DONE!

I’m actually marking my calendar now & I’m on day 3! I draw a cute little green sprout each day so I have some little ritual, something to look forward to doing. Yes, I know it’s a silly, teeny-weenie thing but sometimes it’s the littlest things that keep us motivated. (Like having to write down every penny you spend or every bite you eat suddenly makes you pause before proceeding: Do I REALLY want to face “twinkie” on my list of things eaten today?) So, I’ll keep you posted on my progress, occasionally post some pics of what I’m eating these days & anything else I can think of that might be helpful. ‘Til then, catch you ’round the ether!

    Can you explain to me the exact definition of eating raw. I understand nothings cooked but does that leave out processed foods? Also, are their any eating raw websites that you can suggest as this is something I want to look into.

      Some people do eat a few minimally processed items like nutritional yeast & agave nectar (I fall into this camp), but beyond that eating raw means eating fresh fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts & seeds, combining those ingredients into fabulous dishes or eating them completely unadulterated. Some rawbies also eat things like miso, olives & nama shoyu or Bragg’s liquid aminos (I prefer nama shoyu). You can make the most amazing foods from those ingredients alone & never feel the least bit deprived! My favorite web site is Alissa Cohen’s Raw Food Talk . Another good site for recipes is Gone Raw . These are the 2 places I will usually send people to. I just discovered a new site called Raw Foods On A Budget . I haven’t had much time as yet to check it out, so I have no idea how informative it is, so if you check it out let me know what you think!
