Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and 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 high fruit assistance do you need?
Raw is challenging - I'm mostly vegan. I'm curious if raw is sustainable without a huge carbon footprint..
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
Hi if your in the south west of England or you can make it this way, i have created a meetup group for raw vegans & fruitarians with a twist of open mindedness... join us for face to face upcoming meetups:
They're all mine, yes. The name of my blog is from the first verse of the Dhammapada:
Manopubbaṅgammā dhammā / Manoseṭṭhā manomayā / Manasā ce paduṭṭhena
Which doesn't really translate into English, but the idea is that whatever we perceive is a product of the mind. Some like to extend it into meaning that everything that exists is a product of the mind... Personally, I think that there is an objective reality, but we seldom glimpse any of it, being lost in the depths of our subjective perceptions of reality.
I haven't read the Dhammapada as such though, I tend to find sacred texts immensely tedious to read as litterature; I visit them now & then, and grab bits and pieces that spring out to me.
I used to live on the Isle of Wight but left a week ago. I still have an office there though, so I'll be coming and going a bit. I am currently in north Finland where I am from, staying in my childhood home for a short while, while I arrange things so that I can leave for SE Asia, hopefully no later than early December. I may need to come back to the UK for a quick visit before SE Asia though; if you'd like to meet, I'm sure we could arrange something. You're in Brighton, unless your profile isn't updated?
Glad to connect. Not sure if you're into poetry, but I share crystallised bits of my experiences here. It is an interesting path to be upon - always here, and yet exploring; more like unlearning and re-remembering things I knew but forgot a long time ago.
Hiya, good to meet you - I'm eating cooked foods too and mostly veggie but still just have to have a morning cuppa with a dash of milk - I reckon if I can get through the day with just that bit of dairy, loads of fruit and veggies and a cooked veggie dinner I'm still doing better than alot of people! Having 'normal' eating hubby and foster kid doesn't help - they won't even contemplate a meal without meat though I can get my foster daughter to eat macoroni cheese with loads of veggies.
She'll try some of my smoothies too but only before I put the green stuff in - it's a start - she was living on McDonalds and kebabs before she came to me!
Hey thanks for the encouragement! I havent gone full force yet- some stuff came up (doesnt this always happen?) But I hope to start again soon! No I havent done the master cleanse. I did a really good 7 day fast just on green juice about a year ago it was great. I wish I could have done it longer. The important thing to me is having my surroundings being as stess free as possible. It is like you are super sensitive then and the healing is disrupted if there are negative vibes around. Good luck with everything- keep in touch!
