Raw Vegan

I have been thinking about becoming a Raw Vegan.. I'm already a vegetarian and have been for about 5 going on 6 years, it was def. a big change but i'm glad i did it..  everyone always ask me "how did you do it?", i'm like it's really not that hard.. my twin and my mom who i live with eats meat still and it urks my nerves every time she cooks meat especially when she thaws it out in the microwave, the smell makes me sick to my stomach so she has to use incense (yeah it's that bad). my friends think i'm weird though, i already don't drink pop (some call it soda but i'm from buffalo & we call it pop) lol. simply because it isn't healthy & i'm not a fan of sugar, my teeth are very sensitive so me & sugar don't really get along that much, not saying i don't eat candy i do here and there but not often. i haven't had pop in about 6 years as well.  i drink mostly water, in one of my facts i had previously on my award post i explained that i think i'm addicted to water. I'm constantly always drinking something, either water or V8 Juice. maybe i am a weirdo ;-) hahaha but anywho.....

Raw veganism is a diet which combines veganism and raw foodism. It excludes all food of animal origin, and all food cooked above 48 degrees Celsius (118 degrees Fahrenheit). A raw vegan diet includes raw vegetables and fruits, nuts and nut pastes, grain and legume sprouts, seeds, plant oils, sea vegetables, herbs, and fresh juices. There are many different versions of the diet, including fruitarianism, juicearianism, and sproutarianism. Sometimes the definition of a raw vegan diet is loosened to include vegan diets with at least 75% raw foods.
