01-07-2007, 07:07 AM
well I have been 100% raw for just a few days now and I have to say that I am lovin it! before I began I was like 'oh no - Wot am i gonna eat??? But I cant believe all of the yummy food that you can have and it really is yummy - its not boaring at all and it really is fun dontcha think? in the kitchen experimenting with blenders and dehydrators waiting patiently to see what your latest creaion looks like when it emerges :p
Ofcourse you get the cravings for cooked but I think this is a time issue. Oh to be totally detoxed and attuned?!! well hopefully wont be long eh? Is anybody else who has just gone raw this excited??? I have found burning essential oils helps to make me feel more balanced. At the mo im burning lavender and geranium.
Good luck to everyone who aspires to become or stay 100% raw vegan this year, you and this process are so worthwhile!!!
Everyone on this board is really lovely and helpfull - thanks for all your support :D

Hi Bluebell! I love being raw too. I'm fairly new to raw but I like it. Sometimes I eat non raw food because there just isn't always raw available where ever I go. And sometimes not eating when ever one else is, isn't an option. It would cause more problems then its worth to fight it.
I feel so much younger, more clean, more pure, more alive. I haven't dropped anymore weight but its probably cause Im making fatty treats like raw cheese cake.. Can you imagin eating 3 cups of cashews!! Omg heart attack LOL.. Im ready to go get a piece :D

Hi trinity - I can understand what you are saying about the cooked thing being a convienience thing. I think I read one of your posts that said if you had a raw food chef in your closet (or words to that effect lol) it would be so much easier for you to stay raw - count me in on that too!!!
Im totally in love with making my own almond milk at the moment (thats how new I am lol) but omg its just so delicious!!!
Yeh heart attack city with the nuts lol. I was thinking that myself earlier wen i was trying to decide what to do with the almond pulp left overs I thot 'can I really eat that many nuts without clogging an artery!!!?
I read some bits of your journal too trinity and some bits are really funny and I quote '...chocolate what?chocolate ***?' haha
See ya around

The fat in nuts and seeds and coconuts and avocados is GOOD for you, and in fact, helps unclog arteries.
You need healthy fats. I try to limit my nuts, simply because I want to lose weight faster, and am in the right frame of mind to stay committed while doing without. But I do understand that I could eat freely until my body naturally regulated itself. So, it's all good. You're even newer than I am, Freya, and everyone has told me to just eat.
