No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Any suggestions for eating raw in Mexico?  I am going to an intensive language school and will be  staying and eating with a host family- at least for the first week or so.  I have requested no meat and just veggies and fruits.  I am not opposed to eating cooked food as my focus is on learning the language rather than being completely raw.  When I traveled in Mexico with my cute hippie boyfriend in the past ( sadly  :( I am no longer with him ) we ate out of the market.  Mangos, bread, and mexican cheese and avocadoes almost all the time- occasionally eating in a restaurant.    I would almost love to do that again but I just want to make a connection to the Mexican family.  So anyhow........ any suggestions? I will be in San Miguel de Allende which is  home for lots of Americans so probably all kinds of food is available.... even raw restaurant.

What the dude did was buy a bottle of wine for just him and me to share.  I was SO embarrassed as he told me this right in front of his wife.  I felt so bad for her.

Oh my goodness mary Kathryn- at least you knew Spanish enough to understand that he was making a pass at you!   They have promised that they wash the veggies and fruits  to prevent any contamination.  We used to just always buy veggies and fruits that could be peeled.  I love Mexico.  I am so excited to be there!

There's lots of awesome produce available in Mexico.  Enjoy your trip!  I spent six weeks in Cuernavaca doing language study back in the summer of 1990.  It was a wonderful experience!  Until my host started coming on to me.  His wife was very helpful in helping me arrange another home to stay in - and in that second home I had a much better experience.  I WISHED I had said I was vegetarian after I saw the lack of sanitation in the local meat markets! It is my understanding the produce is fine, though you might want to ask that it be washed in water with a bit of chlorine bleach in it to kill off any undwanted bugs.
