Hey, I've enjoyed your comments on the Raw Foodies group! Nice to meet you! I like tofu too. I follow the Eat Right 4 Your Type- which makes me borderline vegetarian. I do eat fish (sometimes raw, sometimes cooked). I'm striving to eat 80% raw, mostly plant-based diet. The 20% allowance of cooked foods is mainly reserved for beans or sprouted grain breads, etc. This is the plan, at least! I have trouble with consistency. It looks like we have similar weight goals, and started out close to the same weight. 1493 days ago
Cow hide is not from cows slaughtered for food. Most leather comes from animals overseas and they are treated worse than they are here. Don't fool yourselves vegans don't use leather. Their money would never support anything that profits from animals or leather, Read this article if you have any doubts http://eatingconsciously.blogspot.com/20 09/03/faq-why-dont-vegans-wear-leather -silk.html 1515 days ago
Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.
So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
