I have been vegan/vegetarian/raw on and off since 1981. Currently I am mostly vegan, which is a bit like being mostly pregnant I suppose. I find I need a support system for my life and an eating style to help me stay with it. I am passionate about authenticity and I help people find their life purpose (www.andibrand.com if you want to know more.) I believe that a proper raw diet brings a stability and an ability to make grounded decisions in my life. But as I stated before, I don't feel I have the support needed to keep it together. I have read most of the books, including 80-10-10. At first, that many bananas seemed a wild idea. But here in SA they are plentiful, as are mangoes and papayas and I can honestly say that fruit is my favourite food. I would love to have the commitment to stand up and say I am a healthy raw vegan and this is why. In my coaching practice people often need advice in getting healthier and having more energy and even though I am not a health coach, I teach them to make a green smoothie for example, and it helps them.

I hike in the mountains near my home. I love walking and cycling but walking is my favourite way to move.
I used to do lots of yoga, but got bored with it.
I paint - portraits mainly.
I have always taken the road less travelled, and I believe I need to be out on the edge otherwise I take up too much space.

I want to commit to a lifestyle that brings me excellent health. To be honest, committing to any eating regime has been difficult for me, mostly because there is very little support around me. What is motivating me now to get more serious about it is that I have had some chronic health issues and I am feeling somewhat desperate to heal myself. Fruit makes sense to me, it is my favourite food and I don't enjoy cooking. I read 80-10-10 a few years ago. It seemed radical so I didn't try it, even though I was mainly raw at the time. I like the exercise component in this way of life. So many raw foodists don't seem to understand the importance of being fit. When I was mostly raw I could climb and walk for longer and faster. Aside from all of this, killing animals for any reason just doesn't make sense.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
