  1. Sorry, this is irrelevant to your post, but I had told you long, long ago that I was planning to go raw. First I said vegan, then I said raw. Well I just now am gradually working my way to raw — gradual to make it simpler, kind of ingrain it as a lifestyle. But I realized while I was on your blog that as a result of all the stuff I’ve eliminated, I’m actually vegan lol. Step 1 was so simple I didn’t even notice I did it. Anyway, I feel great, and it’s been a goal for a while because I used to be vegan, but chocolate chip cookies made me fall off the wagon. I feel both physically and mentally great. And your blog has been an inspiration, I may have said that to you before, but if not, there it is. Thanks!

    • Thank you so much for this message, it means the world to me – you made my day! And congrats on your vegan/raw success. I totally agree that gradually is the way to go. We did it all gradually too and suddenly you realise, as you say, that it’s second nature and not difficult at all. We’ve been high-raw for a month or so now and feel great! And, guess what – I actually found a raw vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe!! Let me know if you want to try it 😀

      • Yeah, it’s strange how difficult it is to get started, but then once your mind is set for it, it’s really very simple, and gets simpler every day. I think I will be about 95% raw for a while, until I master the art of soaking/preparing beans and nuts. That bit feels a little time consuming, and if it isn’t, again it’s just a matter of making a routine out of it. Until then I’ll get protein from tofu, bean salads, and nuts. I’m finding that hot food doesn’t even appeal to me now, which is interesting. I don’t crave anything I’ve eliminated, in fact, I think of it and it does not appeal to me at all. I am addicted to salads. Huge salads full of fruits and vegetables, nuts and tofu. I plan to make a tahini dressing, which will add more raw protein, instead of balsamic vinaigrette. I don’t know, everyone in my real life thinks I’m nuts so it’s great to be talking about this here. Especially since my family’s Italian and food is everything to them. I do have a question for you though, what nuts/seeds/beans don’t need to be soaked/sprouted? Also, a raw chocolate chip cookie recipe mmmmm. Way back when, you emailed me a vegan recipe, which I’m sorry, I never tried. I’m really bad at getting around to things like that. However, I still have the email with the recipe. I’ve bookmarked a lot of recipes on your blog, for the future. So you can either post it and I’ll book mark it, or email me and I’ll save it, and I know once I am more intensely raw and in more of a habit of food preparation beyond making giant salads, I will crave something like chocolate chip cookies. Thanks so much!

        • I think it’s best to soak ALL nuts and seeds – that’s what I’ve read and discovered the hard way that I get an upset tummy if I eat too many nuts (ie in a recipe) without soaking them (although just one or two straight out the bag is ok), but as long as I soak them overnight I can enjoy them. I will certainly do a post about the cookie recipe when I’ve perfected it, I’m going to play around with it first so watch this space!! The non-raw things I’m still enjoying are tofu, rolled oats and yeast extract (for the B12) and this is really working well for me. All the best, Violet xx
