Hi name is Georgie!
I first discovered the Raw Vegan lifestyle when I was searching the web for healthy recipes. I have always had a passion for food and cooking. I stumbled upon FullyRaw Kristina’s YouTube channel. I loved the first recipe video I watched and I was shocked when she said that she was going to eat the whole platter of food herself. I could not believe that someone as slim and glowing could eat so much food and be healthy.
I have always been told by my parents not to eat too much fruit because ‘its bad for you’… Aparently. I beleved them because my Mum and Dad both work in health care. I never really understood them as I find it hard to believe that something that comes from nature could be bad for you. So when I saw more of Kristina and her lifestyle I was attracted to learn more. I have always been conscious of animal rights and last year I went vegetarian for about a year but fell off the wagon because my Grandma would often forget and serve me Spaghetti bolognaise. It wasn’t her fault she forgot and I was too shy to call her out. I would eat it and feel disgusting but at least I didn’t humiliate her. I’m not like that anymore now.
Before my mum would pressure me to eat meat because she didn’t like cooking separate meals for me when I came home from Uni. I always offered to help but she missed the simplicity of my eating when I was younger. I live at Uni in residence with two others who were very accepting to my transition to a Raw Till 4 lifestyle. After discovering Kristina and watching all of her videos I was curious to learn more. I wanted to live in abundance like she does. This is when I discovered Freelee and many other vegan activists on Youtube. I always dismissed the vegan lifestyle because I thought it was too restrictive, but to be honest I don’t feel restricted eating as much as I want. And I get to eat the things that I love, FRUIT! Everything that Freelee said in her videos makes sense. We are meant to thrive on sugar and there is a reason that it tastes so good. I have to pay for my own food at uni so living the Raw Till 4 lifestyle was a way that I could balance my social life, eating and budget. I have to cook for my room mates once a week and serving a bowl of fruit to someone who just doesn’t understand my life choices just want going to work. Raw till 4 has allowed me to live the life that I want and still go out for dinner with friends, cook and be around people who are not vegan. I have been vegan for 2 weeks now, I know its not very long but I feel a lot more in touch with my body then I ever have before. I feel very energised, I sleep better, my skin has cleared up and I get to enjoy my food. I wake up in the morning and bounce out of bed, ready for a run. I have always loved running but have been held back by a reoccurring knee injury. Since starting the lifestyle my knee has started to ache less and I can relax more when running. I want to buy a bike to vary my exercise. I would ultimately love to loose weight but at the moment I feel so good and motivated to be healthy it is almost like a positive side effect of my health and fitness goals. If I loose weight and tone up it would be good but at the moment I just want to get involved with the community and find more people like me in my area.
