Aloha from Maui

#1 Postby BuiltRaw » Thu Jan 19, 2012 5:17 pm

Aloha, my name is cory. Im really happy to have found this site. Been a vegetarian vegan on and off now for 2 years(holidays and family pressure kill me) I gotta say that I'm ready to be a full on raw vegan. I know in my heart that is what I want and every one else I know will just have to deal with it. I'm trying to get into body building aswell. I use to play semi pro hockey and since than I have let my body go alittle. Weight shot up to 250lbs in a year and that is when I went vegetarian and lost 70 lbs in a year. I'm motivated now to get in the best shape of my life and stay on the path of raw Veganism. I hope to meet some great people on here and hope I can help some people out a well. If any one lives in Maui give me a shout always looking for like minded people to hang out with and have some green juice. Current stats are 6' tall 195 lbs 25 years old. Starting p90x on Monday and will probably do a journal on here about it. Well thanks everyone and if you want to know more just ask. Mahalo

Stop reading my thoughts, Fallen_Horse, it's creepy. :lol: Hockey? Fantastic! What position? I was a figure skater back in the day, used to hang out with a lot of hockey players. (I must admit, just the thought of ice skating in the tropics is scrambling my brain.)

Welcome, Cory, and please feel free to drive us all crazy with lust by sharing your luscious raw Hawaiian recipes.

Oh and I played defense. I was the enforcer on my teams and then they started giving us penalties for looking at a guy cross eyed so I had enough. Now I distill vodka and rum and am pretty happy.

Rats! My skates are gettin' dusty. I haven't done a snowplow on anybody in years!

We demand the recipe. Okay, I demand the recipe. Never mind, I'll just give you my address and you can drop off ten pounds of each.

Defense? I'll dispense with the missing teeth jokes then, I'm sure you've heard them all. Funny, most of the hockey players I knew played vodka position, too. Is that a rule? :lol:

Not to mention fantastic local beer, intoxicating organic chocolate, and several ice rinks. We also have quite a few Hawaiians, so to speak. You'll blend right in when you visit. I'll meet you behind the Zamboni.

Herc that sounds solid. Oregon has amazing local beer. If you ever come to Maui I'll treat you to a martini and some green juice.

Woo-HOO! I've already had CoCoNut Porter http://www.mauibrewingco.com/mbc/MBCCannedBeer.html and loved it. I'll only accept a martini if it's on the beach. :sunny: Speaking of which, I recommend taking all your progress pics on the beach. Regardless of your progress, we'll all be impressed and jealous as hell.

you guys deffinitly just made me want to move to Oregon even more :). I just have to get my finances in order and figure out what Im going to do about my house here in missouri. Im either going to keep it and rent it out or im going to sell it. I just dont feel right in Missouri, not to mention I get bashed on all the time out here for being vegan and its getting old. I would rather be in a state where I feel more welcome.

We could definitely use your Missouri skills, especially in situations like this one last week.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 6zlkP8thkk I drive a big ass 4x4, so this cracks me up every time. But I don't want to hijack BuiltRaw's thread.

So, Cory, about that Pineapple Papaya Salsa...? :wink:

1 cup diced fresh pineapple 1/2 cup diced papaya 4 tomatoes diced 1/2 onion diced 2 jalopenos diced juice from one lime and a handful of cilantro finely chopped combine all ingridients and eat with beans or rice or with chips. I put it on my buritos or combine with rice and just eat it with a spoon. You can add salt and cumin if you wish aswell.
