First off: I love Durianrider and Freelea for what they are doing for themselves, this planet, and all the innocent animals around the world.
I have always been inclined to eat a vegetarian/vegan diet. I never liked meat very much but was forced to eat it and eventually developed a taste for animal flesh. I now know in my heart that I am a vegan, and that I have always been a vegan. I know this because as a child, I always gravitated towards raw fruits and vegetables even when candy and other sweets were available.
In 2009, I realized that iI had the power to feed myself what I want to eat, not what everyone expected me to eat or what I though i was "supposed" to eat. I had been eating a SAD diet nearly all of my life and was obese and feeling and looking much older than someone in their early twenties. My intuition led me to this lifestyle. I had experimented with eating raw foods and transformed my body by adopting a raw vegan diet, brimming with gourmet raw foods. Needless to say, I did not last long as a raw fooder, but I was able to maintain eating cooked vegan for a year before slowly adding the moo and the cluck back into my diet. I began to lose sight of why I became vegan in the first place and had stopped losing weight because I was eating a lot of fat.
In early 2012, after a check up, I learned that my cholesterol was higher than i would have liked and that my energy levels and digestion were a fraction of what they had been when I was raw and even vegan, so I decided that I would give being a raw vegan another chance.
I was looking for videos on youtube for raw recipes when i first stumbled upon Durianrider's channel. I was instantly hooked, and later amazed at Freelea's transformation. The honesty and compassion for life shown by each of you is inspiring and I am so delighted to be a part of this community.
