I've been vegan for ethical reasons for six years, and have been considering going raw for a while now, partly because I have a lot of food allergies (though none to any fruits, nuts, or vegetables.) I'm a very slow distance runner who would like to get faster through better nutrition. I'm a nerd, a librarian, and the mom of one human, three dogs, and one cat. I also love skiing and bike-commuting.

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?
I would like a community to share with while transitioning to the raw lifestyle and maintaining it. I live in a small Texas town with few people who eat like I do. It gets very lonely. I want company for the journey.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products.

Monday-- Yep, it was a Monday

The good news-- 2218 cal.  The bad news-- 25% fat-- mostly from cookies.  I did really great with eating a nice big breakfast smoothie of bananas and dates (with the ribs from kale thrown in).  Ate more dates as snacks.  Enjoyed a super yummy green salad with the same tahini-agave dressing as yesterday.  Walked the dogs and came home wanting to eat everything in sight.  Instead of taking a moment to make another smoothie, I ate cookies.  Sigh.  Now another three or four days to get that…

Another good day.  Calories: 1915, with 14.3% fat.  Weight holding around 160.  My scales disagree about my bodyfat, but it's somewhere in the 34-37% range.  That is actually good, because it means my lean mass is pretty much where I want it to be and I can hopefully lose just fat!  The lack of weight gain is promising, since I'm definitely eating about 500+ calories more than I used to.  Started craving cooked foods this evening after an hour in the garden, but I ate bananas instead and…

Today was a decent day!  The only thing I didn't quite get right was the coffee, but I have a feeling coffee will get less interesting as time goes by.  Calorie intake 2153 with 14% fat (1/2 avocado.)

Spent four hours gardening-- mostly cleaning up from my last gardening session (I let the stuff dry before trying to collect it) and weeding the palm bed.  Lots more to do tomorrow.

Slept again without help.  Not long enough-- stayed up to 2:30 to chat with hubby, then got up at…

Not a perfect day. I got over 2,000 cals, which is good, but a quarter of that was french fries.  Made the mistake of going out and about with a cranky teen, and although I did have a lovely 1000 cal banana-date smoothie, it apparently wasn't enough.  Need to pack emergency dates.

Came home, did an easy run (base heartrate training) with one of my dogs, walked all three of them, then returned to my beautiful house and enjoyed a huge mixing bowl of butterhead lettuce, grape tomatoes,…

Hi, Jennifer, It is nice to meet you. I am a newbie too. I am a month in and I haven't had too many problems. I drink the green smoothies in the am and the salads in the later pm. I am building up on some of the requirements too. I need to eat no salt for awhile, workout more and drink more water. I used to be a Cross Country runner and loved it. Anyway what you do sounds cool. Don't be a stranger, keep in touch. Welcome and Good Luck!
