Hi, I am new to this boards. (and to chatting on line in general)
I have been vegetarian for over 10 year. Nearly vegan for 3. I have been eating a lot of raw food in the past year, may be 60%-70%, hard to say.
Just because I love fruits & veggies, and it is sooo easy.
I am considering going 100% raw, or very close to it.
I am 27, I am a graphic designer and I live in the Toronto area.

Hi and welcome. This is a great site. I've been a vegetarian since I was 14, mostly vegan (just a little cheese here and there). I'm 22 now and certainly haven't missed meat. I have been raw for months at a time in the past and am currently 27 days into my new attempt to stay raw for good. I am much more inspired this time and finally got a dehydrator and vitamix. The difference between eating raw most the time and eating raw ALL of the time is HUGE. It doesn't seem like it would be, but you feel soooo much different/better all raw. I don't think that physical and mental change can really take place until you eat 100% raw. Try it! Just plan on going 30 days and see how you feel.

That is very encouraging! For me the hardest thing to give up is bread. Most of my meals are raw (veggies, nuts, ovocados, tahini ect), but I also usually have some whole wheat pita bread with it to fill me up.
How do you give up bread?

First give up wheat because that is the worst form of bread. When you have accomplished that, give up yeast. When you have your bread palate down to no wheat or yeast it will be an easy transition to raw bread. Or. You could go cold turkey and go straaight to raw. Or there is a variety of breads available in the health food stores labelled "Sprouted Grain Bread" These are considered transition breads which you can have while you are adjusting. They come in lots of variaties including rasin and are nice toasted. They are not raw.

Welcome to the forum! The onion bread listed in the recipe forum as well as Alissa's pita bread are helpful when giving up bread. Also, I love making essene bread:
There is a raw community in Toronto and I believe a raw restaurant.
Many blessings on your path to radiant health!
