Hi all. I just found this site from a post over on Rawfoodtalk.com. I am delighted to find all the easy recipes compiled in an easy to use (and discuss!) way.
My name is Toni and I started my raw food journey last year at this very time. I was dxed with Hashimoto’s disease in Sept of 05 and even on the meds I found myself quickly going downhill. I was gaining weight, suicidal, and exhausted all the time. I am a hsing mom to 4 dc with a dh who is a hard working man. My kids needed their mom and my dh needed his wife. A good friend of mine was looking for info on juice fasts and she came across a testimony on Shazzie’s site. She sent the link to me and I started raw within 3 days.
It has been an up and down battle through this past year. I will have days where I am 100% and I will have days when I blow it completely. My family is not raw and my dh has no desire to be. He will snack raw but dinner had better have some meat in it or he will pull out the peanut butter.:)
I am amazed at how much better I feel and how much more emotionally stable I am when I stay raw. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing recipes!
Hello Ray, We are neighbors:) I am in Dallas, OR, near Salem.
Hasimoto’s is a thyroid disease that causes your body to attack and destroy your thyroid. It is amazing what your thyroid controls in your body and how miserable a person is without it!
Thanks for the welcome.:)
Hi Toni, Welcome to Gone Raw! Say, where do you go for organic fruits and vegetables in your area? I have family in Salem who was just asking for recommendations and you sound much closer to Salem than I am here in Portland!
