Hi Nikki,
I'm Catherine and I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Congratulations on going raw. I've tried it off and on over the years, but finally got committed to it this summer and I feel great, too. You are definitely not alone and this is a great place to get support and information. There are also a lot of great books on raw foods as well as much info on the internet.

Do you live in an area where good raw products are easily available? I have the good fortune to live in a town with several health food stores and a vibrant farmers market. Right now there is such a wealth of fresh raw produce there and it is far superior to anything in the stores because it is locally grown and fresh picked. In the winter months we rely on the stores which fortunately offer a fairly good selection of organic produce year 'round.

Don't let your family deter you. My husband is not at all interested in changing his eating habits, so I cook the usual foods for him and "uncook" for myself. He is OK with it because he sees how much better I feel on a raw diet. I'm 63 but feel 20 years younger and have lots of energy. Raw foods have reduced my arthritis symptoms almost completely. I do have the support of friends who are also into raw foods and my daughter who loves to come over and sample my recipes.

I wish you luck on your journey and hope you will get lots of positive feedback and help on this site.
Catherine

Hi Nikki. I'm in England too - West Sussex.
I've been "raw" since june this year. My partner and I were vegans anyway, which made it easier, but he doesn't stick to the living/raw food as much as I do.
Family and friends think it's a bit bonkers, but they can't ignore the fact that I'm much healthier on this plan!
How are you getting on?
Best wishes, Poli

Hi nikki, Warmest welcome to you. I was vegetarian, then vegan and now raw. I've tried to be 100% raw several times before getting it. It takes time sometimes but don't give up and never stop trying. It 's well worth it. It's good that you want to learn more about raw foods, I do too. Hang in there and I'm glad you found us!!!!
