Hi from the UK
I'm new to this website and forum, it is very inspiring to read all of your stories about going raw.
I have been thinking about going raw for some time, ever since I come across a website - [URL=http://shazzie.com] a few months ago - you may have seen it, the transformation of this young lady is pretty amazing!
It seems that "raw" is big in the US, I think it is starting to become more popular in the UK, but it is relatively unknown.
I would like to hear from other people from the UK, especially those that have been doing "raw" for some time, or others that are just starting out. It would be good to give and receive encouragement from others.
I can't say I have been doing raw for very long (just under 2 weeks so far), but I can offer encouragement *whhooo GOOOoooOOo Rawwwwww!!!*
I mainly wanted to say because your a fellow Brit!!!! although I 'm not even living in the UK at present!!!! How is England? It's been over a year since I went home last
Moving back in 5 months, 2 weeks and 5 days!!!!!!
Good luck on your raw journey
A warm welcome to you Jules! May I cheer you on and say go for it! Raw living has changed my life already, in just 40 some odd days, and its blowing me away.
I came across Shazzie's site first also and she inspired me to no end...still does as does Alissa. Have you checked out The Fresh Network there in the UK?
Well, again welcome, and many blessings to you on your path ahead.

Just thought I'd say hello - I LOVE Shazzie - and she inspired me to keep searching for something here to jump into and I found Alissa.
I JUST got Shazzie's book " Detox your World" as a gift from a dear friend - and I must say that I Highly recommend it.
Anyhow - welcome - and wishing you great success with the RAW lifestyle.
Welcome to the boards (from a relative Raw newcomer!). I found the book Eat Smart, Eat Raw by Kate Wood in our library, and she's a Brit. Definately more resources in the US - but, hey, we all speak the same language (kind of...lol!)
Good Luck with your Raw Journey!

My daughter's name is Julia and we call her Jules...she wanted to share that with you. (oh and she's 11 months old)
Hi Jules, I am also in the UK and read this forum regularly. Haven't yet done "The Challenge" but seriously considering it. I have been eating a lot more raw, so just finding my way round - want to keep it simple.
Where do you get your fruit and veggies? What general area are you in? I am in the South East.
Good luck with your raw beginnings :)
Im in uk as well
