I'm Fiona from Sydney, Australia. Mum to 2 very active toddlers and partner to a somewhat meat loving Man
Just wanted to say it's great to find this web site & forum and very inspiring to see such a wide spectrum of people from all places are going Raw. As a total Raw Food novice I've been looking through the earlier messages & will no doubt be asking questions alot...Please bear with me :)
I only discovered the "World Of Raw" when I read the Norman Walker book that came with my Samson Juicer which I finally bought back in October. (I had my eye on one of these for years & I must say I LOVE it) Am fascinated by Raw as it just *makes so much sense*.
My goal (might seem quite tame to some?) is to get me & my family 50% Raw over the next 6 mths. Not sure if the rest of the family will go any further than this, but I'm planning to. I know some people just jump in and Go Raw overnight, but it's got to be gradual for me...I really like to understand each step as I go (sprouting is my next one). Luckily I was never into junk food or sodas/chocolate etc, and my favourite food of all time is fresh fruit (likewise my kids) So whilst my current diet "could be worse" I know I've got lots to learn about being really healthy.
I know this will be a very gradual process and am enjoying a very intense learning curve...At least I know where I'm heading.
Look forward to "meeting" you all but must dash - kids are due to wake up any minute!
