Hi, I went veggie when I was 5 (the only member of my family who has a consience!) and have been vegan for 2 ish years, and discovered raw about 6 months ago. I was intriged, but wasn't sure I could do it as my mum would be the one paying, and other family members would complain how hard it is to feed me (they already do!) I'd really like to go raw! I'm always tired and get eczema quite a lot and have heard raw helps this, as well as just making you feel great. I already eat mostly raw snacks (fruit, veg, pinenuts etc). I'm a little concerned about nutrition, but I think if I just eat enough variety I'll be fine. To keep costs down I'm trying to grow my own, and do sprouting and stuff. Unfortunatley Im alergic to avacados (makes my mouth swell) but I love them so I eat them anyway! also any tips you'd like to share, how to convince parents and prove to friends I'm not a rabbit (I like rabbits by the way:D) ?
What books would you recomend for people considering raw but not sure how to start, for newbies, recipes and nutrition? :) and what foods saved your life when you first became raw?
thank you lovely raw people! :)
