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.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
