Tiffany at the Bistro gave me one of these raw vegan energy bars, called a “Larabar”, so I tried it out and it was quite tasty! (thanks Tiffany). I’ll have to buy more of these at Trader Joe’s.
I’m still sticking to raw vegetable salads and raw veggie sandwiches. I’m allowing myself to eat bread that is 100% sprouted, although I think my current diet is still about 90% raw foods.
The diet has been going very well, and I’ve found it an easy transition, although the change itself is thought to be a major one… giving up all animal products, plus eating only raw foods, mostly. People today are used to eating cooked meals.
I’d say the only problems are actually in social settings, when people have to ask why I’m not eating, and I have to tell them there isn’t anything there for me to eat! Then I have to explain that I’m a strict vegetarian for ethical as well as health reasons.
