The Never-ending raw challenge!
Hi all, I've received some emails lately about people needind inspiration to go 100% raw, especially during the Holidays.
So, I thought let's just do it, we'll go 100% raw the day After Thanksgiving, now I know you can do it right now, and I know you can have a raw Thanksgiving, and that is great, I surely purely hope you all will.
But for some, that just isn't possible right this minute to even think of.
So, I'm starting this thread for any and all who wish to commit to go 100% raw starting the day after Thanksgiving which is this Friday.
I'm in, anyone else wish to join me?
I have all kinds of raw fresh organic ripe produce in my house right now, so I don't need to go to the store, but if you do need to, please knwo that you may have to go tonight, as many stores will not be open tomorrow, and you may not want to wait Friday morning to go to the store before you eat.
so, let's start by getting prepared for Friday, by making sure we have lots of fresh raw ripe organic foods in our homes.
I'll be munching out on pineapple, kiwi, orange juice, fresh veggie soups, and flax seed crackers, and If I'm really lucky, I'll have some fantasy deserts left over from Thanksgiving that I've made to take with me to friend's house.
so, who's with me.?????
YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO DO THIS!!!!
Sounds great! I am SO with you, babe! I mean, raw babe! Count me in! I just went shopping so I am all good.
Let's really go for it and keep one another supported and accountable--- as we always do, but step it up a notch or two!
I fell big a month ago when my mom visited and have been gaining raw momentum ever since, but not to 100% yet. So, the day after Thanksgiving it is!!
I know im a newbie here but this is just the encouragement I need.....im in!
the more the merrier,
If you are already 100% raw, are struggling, or are going raw today or tomorrow, you can still join us, there is no limit, no judgement, no nothing, we're just all going to be eating as much raw as we can, while striving to be 100 % raw `100% of the time, and helping each other through the stumbles and hurdles that can happen, especially during th holidays.
So, everyone, we wanna' hear from you, and we need encouragement.
YES, I agree, RAW LOVE--kind of like my old Junior high days of Flower Power, LOL
Ohhh, RP... I'm sooo with you! I've been struggling, and have been working my way back to raw, and was 100% a couple of days this week but ate some SAD again today, so I'm going 100% again tomorrow (it's not Thanksgiving here, we had it in October). I'm hitting Costco tomorrow for big quantities of fruit! :) Soooo, I'll be back to 100% tomorrow and will be here to support you guys when you start on Friday!
I'm taking Alissa's course next Thursday, so I won't have any trouble staying raw for those 5 days at least, LOL! So I just have 7 days until then that I need to stay 100% before I'm with Alissa and everyone... I'm soooo psyched about the class!!
How long are we going to go? I say a year... 2 years! 3 years!!! Or, we could just see how long we can keep the thread going and stay 100% raw and see if we can make a record thread!
I'm all for making it a lifelong thread too.
let's just do it, and keep it going and we'll just keep supporting each other, and people will come and post and be bliss filled and happy.
and YOU are going to LOVE Alissa's class, I just know it.
YES, you will indeed have a great time.
Sounds awesome! Or RAWsome!

I just ate one of your raw brownies to celebrate!
good to have you all, we're gonna' do so great,
I'm jumping up and down for RAW joy here.
Ok I'm going to keep it real. I'll join y'all on Sunday. that's the begining of the week for some, so it works for me ;)
It is, therefore, evident that it is possible to cure by foods, aliments and fruits; but as today the science of medicine is imperfect, this fact is not yet fully grasped. When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, aliments, fragrant fruits and vegetables, and by various waters, hot and cold in temperature.

Thank you, RP!
I was thinking of doing this to get back on the wagon and now you've helped me...I was doing great up to 1/2 way through my 30 day challenge when I had guests come for almost a week and since then I haven't made it back, and in fact, I've pretty much been hiding out (not posting at all). So I'll be with you all tomorrow and in fact, might do some of the raw Thanksgiving recipes, this weekend. I just didn't have the time to get a raw meal together, although I will be brining a signature salad, to dinner tonight.
Anyway, hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. I have so mnay things to bve thankful for, one of which is this great board!

Count me in too! I really need this and went to the store last night and got some beautiful mangos, coconut, pears, apples, huge avocados, oranges for juicing, and lots of greens. I got everything to make Alissa's Falafal Balls (which I love topped on a salad) too. Yum!
I've had some health issues lately and this is just what I need to help with the healing process. Thank you Christine for starting this thread and encouragment for us all! Friday it is!

Hey guys... What do you say we think up a cooool name for our challenge and change the title of the thread?
Something like "The Never-Ending Raw Challenge" or something to that affect but more creative? :)
I'm soooo psyched!
