New to raw but not new to vegetarianism or veganism, although haven’t been practicing either one for a while. Diving into raw full force! Many restaurants in my area that are vegan and/or raw, and sooooo many wonderful lectures and seminars. Thank you, God, for Southern California! I would love to meet peeps who live in Huntington Beach –- Long Beach; Fountain Valley – Costa Mesa who are raw, vegan, vegetarian or just open-minded!
