Aloha everyone,

My name is Rachael and I'm happy to be here... looks like a wonderful place to hang out

I'm a raw food enthusiast, vegan and raw food chef, blogger, and Youtube video creator. and vegan/raw food coach (this is what I do for a living!) and I love it all!!!

I got into this lifestyle about 2 years ago when I was obese, sick, tired, and sick of being sick and tired. Since then, I have lost most than 90 pounds (still a few to go...), I have reversed my high blood pressure, won over depression, quit smoking, and have not been sick in more than 1.5 years (not even a cold!).

This might explain why I've made the raw vegan lifestyle my entire life.

Because I do create cooked vegan foods for clients, I am not always completely raw but pretty darn close!

I live with a fellow raw foodie husband, a vegetarian son, and an omnivore so we're a mixed crew here on the Big Island of Hawaii

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all better and learning some new things as well as hopefully contributing some helpful information and recipes to the forum. Thanks for having me!

Welcome! I consider myself a raw foodist and I am currently converting from vegetarian to vegan. I've also gone gluten-free. I am also trying to lose quite a bit of weight and I am very happy to have someone like you join our happy, little family. I hope I can learn a lot and get a lot of inspiration from you, too.

Laura

Welcome, Rachael! It's always great to have another raw foodist - it's definitely the minority here!
