Hi

#1 Postby suz » Fri Nov 24, 2006 7:57 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm not a body builder but i'm seriously into kickboxing and fitness and I've been vegan for just over 7 months now. I try to work out at least 4 times a week and I trail run when I have time. I've been working on transitioning to a raw diet and so far the results have been awesome.

It's nice to see such a cool fitness based vegan forum. You seem like a good group! 8)

I'm still learning what to eat...

But so far tons of fruit, like 6 servings a day. Salad with nuts, hemp seed, and raisins in 'it. Hummus is a staple. Also, I've just started making different tapenades including a broccoli and pine nut blend, an olive and nut blend, and a sun-dried tomato and garlic blend. I use the tapenades as dips for raw veggies. On non raw days the tapenades are awesome as vegan pizza and burrito sauces. I also have vega shakes a few times a week.

I have to start doing research into what other raw foodists eat because right now I'm still at a bit of a loss.

Welcome suz!

Great to have you here. We have tons of people who are into raw foods and fitness in our group.

I've been to North Vancouver many times, including just a couple of months ago. Right now I'm in Seattle with Brendan Brazier who is from North Van.

Thanks for finding our forum and we look forward to reading more from you.

All the best and welcome aboard!

Wow, when I try to do raw, I generally just eat fruit or vegetables straight rather than prepare anything. That's quite a lot of interesting things :o I did used to soak brown rice to eat though, that was quite good.

Welcome suz.

When eating raw (or cooked or whatever), just listen to your body, and trust that more than anything else, though getting ideas from other people is always a good idea too, for variety sake. ;)
