Hi there, I saw your message, and I want you to know I think it is great that you are changing your diet so much. It is sometimes difficult with so many people around you who don't eat healthy and don't understand.
I started eating more raw food for my health, and it is helping to heal my body. I want to recommend a great cookbook, just in case you want to start experimenting. And some of these recipes are good enough to share with your friends:
