Hello everyone My name is Emma and I recently moved here to MA. I decided one night after reading an article that my whatever I feel like eating way of living (which included no organic foods I don't think I have ever had them before and most veggies were taken out of a can smothered with butter and then thrown into a pot for 20 minutes till the meat was done cooking) was just nonsense. I decided right there that I was going to become a raw vegan. I spent about an hour on the internet figuring out what that really meant. I went to bed woke up the next morning and went straight to the market. I bought all foods to support my new way of eating. And that was that I haven't had anything that was not raw and vegan since...with the exception of a few crackers which while I was eating realized "oh I bet these were baked so it doesn't matter that they are all natural and organic"...that was about a week ago. So after that was in place the next day I decided that if I was going to start eating healthy perhaps I should maybe try out Yoga and I loved it! SO far this whole experience has completely transformed my life and even my way of thinking. Its been an amazing ride and I really hope it continues. I have dropped 4lb's already and my skin that has always had a yellow tint to it for as long as I can remember is starting to turn a different shade where the yellow is gone. OK I know that sounds crazy I really do but its the God's honest truth. Anyway, so far I feel better then I did at 16! I have started with the yoga like I said and all of a sudden I love being outside so I have been taking three 30 minute walks each day! Its been truly wonderful! Well that is my story in a nut shell! Love the site!
