Hello everyone. I'm currently living in Japan, and just started trying to eat mostly raw foods. I am extremely excited about this transition. I've been mostly vegan the past several years, and this is the next step on my journey. I didn't ever think I could "go raw," but I've been doing it in ways that work for me as an individual. I'm learning so many new, amazing things that I would just like to shout out to the world. The problem is that so many people don't want to hear it. But, I can't help but share my enthusiasm sometimes about some great recipe I've tried & so forth. Japan isn't conducive toward a vegan diet let alone a raw one. But, I'm trying to eat mostly at home. I'm also working toward getting my family to eat raw. My 10 year old and 20 month old need this healthy, tasty stuff too! Anyway, I'm looking forward to exploring this forum, and I'm so excited that there is support out there for people wanting to adopt this lifestyle. I've never met a raw foodist let alone imagined being one, so I'm grateful to know I'm not alone in this journey.
