Going Raw

Im slowly making the move and eating 100% raw food, I have done it on and off for the last 6 months, but I only last about 5 days before I get sick of the recipes I have mastered.
However, I have just pruchased some essential equiptment for the raw foodie..
a new juicer and a dehydrator !!! very exciting.
I thought Id share with you about it and also any recipes along the way... below is all about the lifestyle..

"The raw food vegan diet & lifestyle successfully contributes not only to optimal health creation, but is also prevalent in animal welfare and ecology, providing a sustainable and compassionate future.

A raw foods diet is made up of fresh, whole, unrefined, living, plant-based foods: fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds, which are consumed in their natural state, without cooking or steaming. People who adopt this diet are often referred to as "raw fooders" or "raw vegans."
Since the primary focus is optimal health, it is essential to understand that good health is the product of a healthy lifestyle. The raw diet is only one component. Adequate sleep, regular exercise, plenty of fresh air, water and ample sunlight, a positive outlook on life, friendship, security in life, and many other factors are also important to good health. The raw diet has no mystical properties to it, however it does provide our bodies with excellent nutrition allowing for the human body to reach its full potential"
