My name is Ryan, and I was kinda the first member on 30BAD! (Besides Free & DR of course.) Crazy, right?
This site has given me so much. Most notably, it granted me a sense of community that I needed big time, and has shaped my ideals for a support network that are now being realized even more tangibly in my life.
Honestly, it's been awhile since I've visited here. I gotta say, I'm impressed, by a few things:
1) Aimee's 'Spring Into Action' thread is still going strong! Amazing. Like 6 years now!
2) The vibe is still high! This question & answer, discussion, free-flow of interaction works so well with a group with a positive attitude.
3) How the scope of the site has been opened up, without compromise! I remember when Give It To Me Raw forum opened up past raw vegan foods, and the proverbial floodgates let loose a flurry of chaotic dialogue. Though, it spawned 30BAD! And here, things are still very much in forward momentum.
What brought me here today is the chance to offer to you all is my new cookbook! I have focused a lot of energy to collect a guide of information and cherished recipes in the Homestyle Vegan Cookbook.
All recipes and recommendations in this book are tailored within the guidelines of Raw Till 4. It features 26 complete-meal recipes that are high-carbohydrate, oil-free, low-sodium, minimally-cooked, gluten-free, and truly delicious.
They have stood the test of time & trials, as these are mostly recipes that have been in my family for multiple generations; classics of various cultures that have been taken to the highest standards of nutritional presentation.
The guide also features recommendations for the essential tools to have in your kitchen and items in your pantry, with specific trusted brand recommendations and where to find them!
Additionally, there is a complete cooking guide for preparing a range of vegetables, grains, and beans, including specific cook times and methods for various types, and instructions for the healthiest types of cooking methods.
If this sounds like something that may be of service to you, I invite you to check out more of the story and purchase Homestyle Vegan here.
On this page I go into more detail about what you can find within the pages, and also give links to YouTube videos that I've been featured in where I show off the recipes and book.
Thanks for taking the time with me on this post. For doing so, I'd like to offer you this exclusive 30BAD discount!
The book includes a full satisfaction guarantee, without expiration.
Regardless, I'm happy to have the opportunity to revisit the site, and be so pleasantly familiarized with this place and its members in the current phase.
Keep up the great work!
