Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm new here
I'm new here, and have been on the raw food journey since January 2010. I'm now a raw vegan also (was raw vegetarian with dairy before), as of the last 4 months or so, and loving it. Prior to this year, I began to experiment with vegan gourmet recipes from restaurant cookbooks last september to december, so have been working with this experience to "translate" it into the raw world of food.
I first heard of raw food back in 1998, although from what I knew then, the people and teacher were mostly eating salads, which I did quite alot at that time.
In 2004 I took a course with Karen Knowler that took me right into other ideas beyond salads, and tasted my first raw pizza (yum), but in practice at that time was another story - including the often spoke about raw emotional detox - something I did not expect since I had been working with energy modalities since 1992.
Continuing on with the energy modalities, there came a time where there was little left to clear or rebalance at that level and I felt ready to take cleansing to the next level, and by divine synchronicity, a friend suggested I take the Raw Divas detox. I felt so cleansed from this, I wanted to feel like this always and forever, so I looked deeper and deeper into this pathway of life and was so excited with all I found - things had moved on alot since my first experiences in 2004!
This was the time for me! I actually felt my cells healing after eating raw food and was amazed and astounded! I had previously experienced that zinging in the cells after juices that I had regularly before going raw (I had a stainless steel angel juicer).
I began sourcing the best of the best products in the raw world of food, and felt guided to set up a raw food shop in October to assist others to easily find some great raw food items and eco lifestyle products also.
