Hello to you. My name is Sara and I’m sixteen years old from Missouri. I became vegan in late July ‘07 for the animal’s sake. I educated myself on how cruelly they were treated and decided that I didn’t want to contribute to that torture. I was curious about raw food over Christmas break, so I started studying up. After much research, I was taken aback at how terribly I was harming my body with cooked food. I have been on and off raw food, but once I'm no longer living at school, I plan to be fully dedicated.. It's the most wonderful thing I could have done for myself. I can’t wait to meet and discuss with other raw foodists and learn some delicious recipes!
