Hi, I am Rawzilla aka Chef Mommie. I have started this new account to go with my new found lifestyle of being a Raw Foodist. The desire came about before the beginning of the year and I basically started on the 1st of January. It was not set out to be a New Years resolution or anything, it just happened in that timing. My main desire for this new way of life came about in doing research to help eliminate pain in my body. Told for the last ten years (and rebuking it) that I have Fybromyalgia, I decided to make lifestyle changes to see if it would help. So far the Raw lifestyle has eliminated 80% of my pain, helped me think clearer and see clearer and has helped me with water retention. I am very excited to see how far I can go with this. 100 % Raw is really hard to achieve, I would say today I have been about 95% Raw. Would have been 100% but I am snacking on dry Ezekial cereal. Plus I love the Ezekial breads, especially the sesame. I will eat free range eggs cooked , so every now and then I will splurge on having a healthier french toast. My goal for the week would be 75% Raw. I won't be giving up my Chef Mommie account because I still have to cook for my family. My dh will eat my raw foods, but he only wants them as side dishes. Since my family isn't converted I will still be cooking for them and rating recipes under my orginal account.
