I am going to commit with you. =)
Why November 1st? This lifestyle is the sort of thing that you just have to commit to and integrate into every component of your life...I'd say scrap the definite dates and just GO and have fun. You'll learn things along the way, and you of course have a strong network of supporting fruities and other aspiring fruities to help guide you along the way. And if you need to, just go HCRV for about 80-90% (and of course all vegan for the rest) of the day till you can just finally hammer on down and be 100%.
So, get your behind out to a Trader Joes, Whole Budget or your friendly little wholesaler and get yourself a few boxes of bananas, oranges, grapes, figs and persimmons, and call it a day. You might just even be able to find lots of ripe bananas at your local store, so I bet you things can be very accommodating if you open your eyes a bit and allow those things to enter your life. It's all about being creative and having a healthy perception, baby.
Let's keep on fighting the good fight, and keep on fruit'n! WHOOO!
ah, raw gourmet
nice to have you back : )
