I eat very clean but I do eat a lot of fish and eggs and for breakfast also have bacon. Raw foods are great. I eat a lot of vegetables. I eat much more fruit than I ought. I could eat fruit for England and it is definitely for me a sugar issue (better of course than candy but it is still my body over eating fructose so I have to be careful with fruit).
My husband and I were vegetarian for 25+ years...we actually met at a Vegetarian Society function!! It has only been in recent years that I've gone back to eating some fish and meat...only ever line-caught fish and organic/grass fed meats. And I LOVE cheeses...it's one of the few foods I can't give up!!! So being Vegan is not anything I'm ever likely to do. But we do have many, mostly vegetarian, vegan and/or raw food days.
One of my favorite raw foods is Essene bread. I make different varieties. They're all delicious.

I eat as much raw as I can: fruits, many veggies (I shred root veggies sometimes), nuts, raw rolled grains, raw milk and cheese when I can afford it. Vegan I have considered but not found a reason yet to give up meat and dairy as long as it's grass-fed, humanely raised, ideally organic. I've borrowed Raw: The Uncook Book from a Friend and would like to take more time trying stuff from it. I also have two DVD's: Raw food mad easy by Jennifer Cornbleet and Fresh And Alive with Ken Rohla. Haven't gotten to use those either yet so this is a great reminder for me.
