30 Bananas a Day!

My name is Kai. 

I think I found out about 80/10/10 about 5 or 6 years ago? I did a couple 30 day challenges, but ended up doing what is essentially what rawtill4 is now, because that's generally a little cheaper. 

Then, life happened. I left my ex, who was a jerk (and would also lie to people and tell them he was vegan for "cool points" but then eat fish and chicken and cheese) and then, of course, I had to move. Then I didn't have much money for food, or any space to store fruits, so I had to start eating basically a vegan version of SAD. (Did you know Dollar Tree sells vegan veggie burgers in a box of 4 for $1? Very cringe-worthy, but at least I could stay vegan. I definitely would not recommend eating that stuff, though.)

Anyway, this part gets complicated, but to simplify it, I did meet someone better. He was basically everything I wanted in a relationship. Except... he was not healthy, at all. He smoked, drunk alcohol, started drinking coffee when he was 6, and ate SAD. Actually, probably ate something even worse than SAD, if you can imagine that. Imagine the box of 4 veggie burgers for $1.... except not vegan. I don't want to know what was in most of what he ate. Needless to say, he had some health problems, and some severe mental illnesses. (Severe depression and anxiety.)

Then I moved in with him!

Fast forward to today, we're married. I helped him get educated on his health. He no longer smokes or drinks, he gave up coffee, and is vegan! Most of his health problems are gone, too. (Including the mental ones) But... some of mine are back as a result of eating a lot of vegan junk food.

We are, however, a little bit better off now. Which is why I'm back here! I'm ready to get back on the raw wagon. (or at least rawtill4 to start out) And he is excited to join me!

I also noticed that it seems to have gotten really quiet here! What's up with that? Is there another forum somewhere, or does no one use forums anymore?

It is a lot quieter here but still a great place to find like minded people and get questions answered and the wealth of excellent topics covered in discussions is quite unique here, just google 30bananasaday + whatever topic you are interested in.  I think facebook groups and youtube has gotten much of people's attention for vegan and raw topics. 

Kai and ednshell, very interesting about it being quiet on here. I don't have Facebook or a YouTube account, which is why I joined 30BaD, so it's interesting to know that traffic on this forum has slowed down a bit.
