I have one other raw vegan in my house, and the others eat a lot of fruit and veggies, because that's what I buy.  but they're not totally thrilled with it.

I ate a lot of dried fruit and nuts in the beginning, before I read the 80/10/10 book.  It didn't work out very well for me.  I almost never do now.  

I know a few raw vegans, but they are all of the 'gourmet' variety.  I've never met another friuty in person. I'd like to meet you guys sometime.

Let your own experience be your guide, but I don't think you need to worry about getting so much protein. mother's milk is 5% of calories from protein, and a baby grows more the first year than it ever will again. I try to get a lb. of leafy greens in a day, and I find that it's enough.

I tried transition with cooked veggies, potatoes, yams, etc. it didn't work for me. the thing is, without salt, spices, sauce, they are bland and boring. I'd much rather eat a mango, than a plain baked potato. for me, the hard part is giving up salt and fat.  I found that if I eat a 1000 cal fruit smoothie for breakfast, and another lunch, I don't want anything else, and can eat a good dinner too.  If I don't get enough calories in early, I want everything!

Living on the sound end, Mt Vernon is a long haul for me.  I buy my produce where I work, at The Star Store in Langley.  For the first year, I bought all my produce from Payless in Freeland. I worked out a deal with the produce manager.  He charged me 20% over his cost, if I bought by the box. Then three months ago, I offered the same to The Star Store, and started buying from them.  Then two months ago, I got a job in the produce department there, and now it's even better.  Come see me if you're ever on the south end, i'll get you the same deal! For example, a 40 lb box of organic bananas would be $30 right now.

I tried Safeway once, but they're corporate, and they wouldn't do shit for me.  I bought a box of bananas, and they charged me the same price per pound as one piece of fruit off the shelf.

Good luck!

Hi new Fruity Friend! :))

Hi Esther, since last April.  No, I'm not 100% yet.  sometimes I eat rice and pasta. about twice a week. I don't know if it's exactly 80/10/10.  I haven't been counting it, but I'm sure it's close. I have an around 1000 cal fruit smoothie for breakfast, another for lunch, some more fruit after work, and then a big salad for dinner.

Hi!! thank you so much <3 I simply eat whenever I'm hungry, usually 3 or 4 times a day. I love running and aerobics like the Beach Body Insanity and Assylum workouts, biking, hiking, swimming, tennis, canoeing... anything active! :) I workout for 1-2 hours a day. In the beginning I didn't and was still successful.
