Hi, Im as new as they come to Raw. Im still in the learning stage but I am seriously considering. Probably the only thing holding me back is that I am a full time student in professional school. My free time is slim to none. (slim is on a lucky day ha). I dont have alot of time for food prep and such. Is this a do-able task Im taking on? Can you do raw on a time-crunched schedule?
Thanks so much everyone!! :)

RAW is the best fast food ever!
I keep bananas, apples, oranges, raisins, nuts, etc. at work so I always have something handy.
You can save the weekends for making recipes if you want.

Thanks so much for your response!!
I definately can handle throwing fruits and veggies into my bag for the day.
Do you find that its an expensive diet? I was reading around and alot of recipies call for dehydrators and fancy gadgets...can I get away with being a little less high tech?

My work schedule has been very hectic lately, but you can manage even with out a fancy dehydrator or any high tech devices. Do you know how to plug in a cord? and push a button and wash a dish or two you can do it.
get your self a blender, at any walmart/ kmart/mejiers etc....This will help you make some smoothies or juices up some fruit. It's called plug and play and wash. :D
Seriously though some days I just cut up my fruit and and throw it into a bowl and add some other ingredients to it and eat it as I'm driving to work. If you just keep it really simple it will save you alot of time.

I myself used to have that problem, and I don't anymore. I came in with the idea that to make it tasty and varied enough you had to do recipes. You don't. Only recipes I make these days are ones that include very few ingredients and use only a blender, knife, and cutting board. For lunch I'll usually take a bag of fruit, a small container of nuts or seeds, and a salad. You can make salad dressing in large batches, and it doesn't take long to do. Or, use fresh lemon juice or raw apple cider vinegar. I personally prefer something with more substance than that, though. Good luck! It can be done, and I highly recommend you give it a shot! Even just partially raw helps a lot. Welcome to raw!

Keep it Simple and take it one day at a time. When doing your Food preperation, just call it your "ME" time.
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW....Welcome to MY World....
