Hi. I've been reading about raw food for several years but have never taken the plunge 100%. My husband and I, and our almost-2yo daughter will be doing the 30-day challenge soon. We have been 50% raw for about a year, and many many years ago my husband and I were vegetarians. He gave me a juicer for my birthday (my 40th birthday, at that!!!!) and a dehydrator for Christmas. Tomorrow I'm going shopping for a saladacco and food processor. I already have a blendtec blender...anyway, this isn't an appliance commercial! I'm a runner and all-around fitness enthusiast. Just before my 35th birthday I developed this strange facial rash, sort-of like rosacea. Never went to a doc b/c I'm not interested in taking pills...I'm hoping eating raw will clear that up as well as make me a generally healthier person. I also hope that my husband will lose about 40 lbs that he's packed on since we moved to the beach, and that my little girl forgets about the few evil food-vices she's developed within the past month. Looking forward to the journey!
