I follow a mostly raw diet also. I eat all raw at home and then make exceptions when I eat out. I find that incorporating green juices or green smoothies is necessary for me.
I can share my typical routine which is very simple: I have a green juice made with a cucumber, celery, bunch of kale/chard/collards, pear or apple, lemon, and ginger in the morning. I take chopped up strawberries, banana, dates, and pecans for a mid-morning snack. Usually arugula, tomato, avocado salad with lemon juice for lunch, then some sort of raw cheese made with nuts, pesto, and tomato for dinner. Sometimes I eat a late lunch and skip dinner. I always make sure to have some sort of dessert in the house like raw cashew-coconut-carob cupcakes or raw chocolate truffles. I supplement with cell food and B12.
I transitioned overnight. Fast food one day, raw the next. It was really hard and a shock to my system, but worked for me. Some recommend starting with raw desserts or trying to do raw only until dinner and having a cooked dinner.
Adapting to non-raw foodists isn't as difficult for me as adapting to non-vegans. I will eat vegan food that isn't raw when I go out or to a friend's house. The most difficult is probably family events (my family is cattle ranchers on one side, meat and potato people on the other). Some people will see your results and want to change their own diet, others will feel threatened by it - I just take it in stride and try not to get overly frustrated or upset. Just lead by example!
I hope that helps, Glenna - even though you didn't ask me I thought I might be able to chime in ;)
So, Halo and Amelia, can you please share the basics of eating raw? How did you transition? How do you adapt to others in your life who don't eat raw?
It only continues to get better... I've been raw for about a year and a half now and I feel amazing all the time!
Yay for raw :) I've only been raw for about 3 months but loving it!
