is the fact that I am eating so many delicious foods I NEVER would have tried before......nori rolls, mushrooms and wild rice, walnut basil pesto, marinated eggplant. SO good! Now I like to cook and consider myself a good cook, but most of the time I would just stick to the tried and true favorites I know my family likes. Now I am trying all sorts of wonderful foods and loving it all.
So, aside from the health benefits of raw, what do you enjoy about eating raw?

I love discovering how much I love healthy foods, especially trying new ones. There were many fruits I never had that I now love. I love how very simple it is to eat healthy.
I've tried various health diets over years and this is definitely the easiest and most enjoyable one of all.

Since I have gone raw my son eats and drinks more fruits and veggies then he has ever had before. He steals my green smoothies. Has to drink some of my green juices and try all my new fruits. He just found out he likes cherries!!

I found a new 8 c Cuisinart at an Estate Sale for only $5.00 and I'm giving it to my mom since I already have one. I was so excited and thankful to have found it in such great condition at such a Great price.:p

I love really tasting my food...cooked foods just do not have the depth of flavor that raw ones do.The first time I had raw lasagna I was amazed at how well you could taste all the individual elements of the dish.I am finding that I like alot of things raw that I didn't even care for cooked.

What do I enjoy about eating raw?
Wow, what don't I enjoy?? When I first started I found that most of the vegetables that I didn't like were really good. And fruit too....stuff I would never eat....and now I like it and can't get enough!!
I like feeling good, losing weight, having energy..................and I like that people are beginning to tell me that I really look great! I know it is an ego thing, but wow, I do feel really good.

Oh and over the weekend we went to a local restaurant that I was told had several vegan choices. Well if you call a $5 side salad with iceburg lettuce, 2 cherry tomatoes, 2 quarters of an egg, some shredded carrots and lots of cheese a vegan choice (I think they were thinking vegetarian) then that and the grilled veggie wrap were our only choices. We opted for the grilled veggie wrap. I left there feeling heavy, bloated and miserable.
I like that raw food makes me feel light satisfied and healthy!
