Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what HCRV assistance do you need?
I've been very comfortably low fat raw for several years. It's quite simple now, so no need for assistance. However, if I were lucky enough to bump into some similar people and maybe form some friendships, it wouldn't bother me...
30bad is a HCRV (high carb, raw vegan) internet community which promotes a high carb raw lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to HCRV. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings.

Thanks for your advice!
I usually make green smoothies in order to incorporate more greens in my diet, or even some green juices, but in winter I really find it challenging to eat green as I can't find good quality ones. Most of them, with small exceptions, are tasteless or they have a bitter taste because they are not fresh. I really can't wait for spring to come in order to have tons of tasty fresh greens!
I was also thinking about having 1-2 teaspoons of sesame seeds per day for a certain period. I suppose that would be ok if I take care of the amount of fat I'm consuming. I usually eat avocados for my fat intake and I avoid any kind of oils.
Orange juice is one of my favourite :) I think it's the only juice that I drink on a regular basis.
I was browsing an old discussion and came across your comments, I liked what you had to say as well as the way you presented your arguement. You sound very mature and wise! I hope you take it as a compliment :-)
Hi Carl. I've been lurking around 30Bad again since completing that big ole hike in October and I haven't seen a hint of you. I'm jumping in cold cucumber on January 2nd. I'm so excited - have a kitchen full of fruit. Hope all is well in your world.
Thanks for the update :-) Ah yeh that can be tough with your mum, I looked after my grandma when she has incontinence and alzheimer's for a a year or so with my dad, it was heart-breaking. Great to hear she is vego. All you can do is your best for her and I know you are doing that :)
Thinking of you and look forward to your return here X
