I just wanted to share that my husband is drinking green smoothies. He is a sad eater, but slowly improving. He also did this on his own from watching me drink them everyday I would think. You just never know what influence you can have on people by the way you live your life. He is also is going to the gym with me now and that makes me happy because he did no exercise before this point. So I just wanted to share.

same here!! My husband is a big, strong, weight-lifting New Jersey guy who loved his hamburgers and junk food.
I made him read "The Food Revolution" by John Robbins and literally overnight he has become a vegan. Overnight. He's making smoothies with coconut, spinach, bananas, strawberries...... He loves his new eating style. He says he will never eat any animal foods again. He gave up a serious coffee habit. My grown daughter now eats salads and smoothies, and my son in college in Chicago has started making smoothies for breakfast, just because he saw me make them and i guess something clicked for him too.
Just amazing how people will latch on after just observing you.....i guess deep down inside they know what you are doing is good and "right".

that's great and it probably improves some areas of your marriage;)!! The first person I was married to was a veggie.

You are so lucky! I would need handcuffs and a serious weapon to get my husband to drink a GS :D (a girl can dream . . .)
That being said, I have sneaked a little wheatgrass into some of the apple juice I've made for him!

This is so much a wonderful news. I think he noticed that you look younger :)
I am very happy for you

My husband has been my biggest cheerleader since going raw. He is still a meat eater, but he has always eaten more healthy than me, low sugar, lots of veggies, whole grain, weighs less now than he did in high school.
We were actually having some fairly serious problems in our marriage but things have gotten better since I went raw and I can't even tell you why. I am more tolerant and patient and also feel better and have more energy. He is excited about the changes he sees in me (especially having "less" to love;)). Any time he meets someone who has health problem, he tells them about the raw food diet. My whole family has increase their raw consumption.
