I tried raw foods in the past but it didn't work for me. I've always believed in raw foods for optimal health, but maybe I didn't give it enough time or effort. I think I was eating too many nuts, avocados, and oils. Anyway, I have been vegan since June and I think I need to start getting rid of cooked foods. It seems that for me, a gradual transition has been working the best. Since I gave up all animal products, what do you think I should give up next?
