About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
After completing 30 days at 80% raw back in November 2010, I knew I had so much left to learn about the raw food lifestyle. I plan on staying with this. It feels right. No longer than I have been on raw, I can see several huge benefits. I'm gathering recipes from here and other sites to set me up for a lifetime of raw food variety. This is so exciting!
I look forward to meeting like minded people and perhaps making some good friends while learning all about living raw!
