Hello, I'm new
Hello--I've been lurking here now and then, but decided to join the discussion, as I need the support. I'm a writer/artist/gardener/general bohemian lady living in beautiful rural Virginia. I like doing just about any sort of craft, though things like quilting and crochet which require exactitude are not always my forte. I'm a big reader and majored in English many moons ago.
I've been a vegetarian half my life and became one when I was at Berkeley. I transitioned to veganism over time, and have never found it at all difficult. I love to cook and am vain about my recipes from marinara sauce to zucchini bread. I'm very healthy, my physician grins from ear to ear when I get a check-up, and even though I'm about to be 45, I still frequently get taken as a college student--it kind of embarrasses me but I would be a liar if I said I didn't like it. I credit my health to my organic vegan diet, as my siblings who eat SAD have not aged so well. I regularly do yoga, swim, walk 3 miles a day, bike ride, and like to rebound.
My interest in raw has been the logical next step in my lifelong interest in health. I've done three "raw summers" where I felt wonderful, had glowing skin, and had some much energy people asked if I was caffeinated (no). I've also tried to to go raw a few other times, but I always get messed up--but I'll ask my questions in the appropriate forums.
I have 2 teenage girls, a wonderful fiance, an assortment of pets, and am open to making new friends IRL and online. Nice to meet everyone!
hi lilac! I just did a raw summer too, and felt really good. I always sort of stop doing raw before I really get a sense of what it could do for me. But there's always the next meal to start fresh.
Welcome Lilac. Raw cooking is even more fun. :)
Welcome Lilac! I love your name, AND your User name - Humble Pie! :)
At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did.
WELCOME! It's such an advantage you already have experienced the benefits of RAW. Look forward to seeing you around.
