View Full Version : I am ready for raw
04-30-2010, 05:59 PM
Hello everyone. Just a quick introduction. I love this site! I have been interested in raw foods since December 2002 when I found the book Raw Energy by Leslie Kenton sitting on my bookshelf. I had been carrying it around with me for about 5 years since picking it up at a used book store but had never read it. When I finally did, I couldnt believe I had waited so long! It was the Kirlian photography that really hooked me. So amazing. Since then I have had many many cycles of on/off raw. I have never felt so healthy as when I am 100% raw but for whatever reasons, I always end up back to SAD. I have about 20 raw food cookbooks and really enjoy preparing and eating raw foods! I am really ready this time to commit to 100%. I feel like my body and spirit are crying out for me to take this step so- here I go! I look forward to all the inspiration and support here- I am really so impressed with this community! :D

Just want to say welcome....I too have many raw food books but the best is Alissa's and her DVD is incredible. You were talking about inspiration.....whenever I need a boost I turn to her book and DVD because there is always something there to inspire me and I can always find answers to my questions and all the questions others might ask me. Hope you enjoy the forum....good luck.

thanks for the warm welcomes!! :D
its true, Alissa's book is THE BEST! Everything I have ever made from that book has been so delicious (ok, well, I didnt like the fettucine alfredo too much but everything else!) It is indeed inspiring and I have come to agree over the years that her way is the best way- listen to your body and just eat raw!
I have had much success that way but then when I try to adapt or allow a little of this or a little of that it just doesnt work and I end up sidetracked for weeks or months at a time. This time I really am committing to sticking with this-- the examples set here by so many long time raw foodists really helps me to know that I can do this, too!
