When I started this 3 years ago, it was the green smoothie. That was my first thing I tried raw. Then the avocado and a pomegranite.

Practically everything it seems. Especially since most was cooked before so it doesn't count. Hard to believe I went without so much yummy, healthy food. I love trying new stuff too.

Pretty much everything. I was a vegetarian for 15 yrs. before going raw vegan but really, my version of vegetarian rarely included any vegetables.
Since going raw vegan some of the new things I have tried are:
zucchini & squash (yum)
avocado (yum yum)
kale (SUPER YUM)
young thai coconut (:::drools:::)
mushrooms (YUM YUM YUM)
purple cabbage (DELICIOUS)
oat groats (yum)

Green smoothies and durian (oh god, that fruit is foul! and yes, I've tried it three times now).
I was pretty happy eating fresh fruit and veg before raw, so not much is new, but now I get SUPER excited over tropical fruit!
