I am trying hard to eat more raw yet just starting out and it's a bit hard of rme to read all the info on this site. You all have so much info it's sort of overwhelming (like just reading about the whole cabbage and broccolli raw. I need an accountability partner to keep me on tract and improving my health. I have many many digestive problems and food intolerances such as dairy, eggs, corn, and wheat. So I am forced to eat a better diet and variety of fruits and veggies and it's hard when my three year old and husband don't eat like I do. How do I make the time to eat well and start shopping more raw and have the temptations when I cook foods for my family? Where should I start??? Also what do you do wen you are invited to eat with another family? Thanks Alisha

Hi, welcome to the board.
I recommend reading Alissa Cohen's book "Living on Live Food" because it answers a lot of your questions, has tons of recipes and information, shopping lists, inspirational stories, etc.
Also, a lot of us here live with family members who don't eat the way we do and have to prepare food for them. It's difficult at times but can be done and the payoff in terms of better health is invaluable.

That is so weird for me, typing out my own name to someone else, not something I am used to. Anyways, email me if you would like and we can "talk".
There's a lot of books out there on the raw lifestyle and great info/feedback on this board.
My own experience is that "keeping it simple" works really well - a lot of fruits and veggies in their most natural state. I keep some snack bars on hand and occasionally visit some raw restaurant that offer some creative choices...but for the most part I limit it to raw fruits and veggies and nuts. That is what feels right for me.
Best of luck on your journey!
