I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your reply - THANK YOU
SO MUCH for taking the time and effort in your BUSY schedule.
I will go through the information you sent me - I'm sure I'll find what
I need in there - THANKS.
Otherwise, it's great to know that I have reached a place where I know I
am not alone and that there are other people living and thinking the way
I do, that I think is half the problem.
I would like to wish you Merry Christmas/Happy Hannukah and all the best
for the coming new year.
With much love,

Sorry you've not been able to get too much feedback from this
list yet -
I think because of the time of year, people are mayb a little
than other times. Normally you'd find loads of helpful advice
information here - and once it's January the list'll be more
Anyway, I just want to CONGRARTULATE you on your great decision
well, take care of your health, guts to withstand all the flack
everyone around you, and your perseverance so far in trusting
thinking!! That's really really _great_!!
There are loads of people on this list who have eaten various
comninations of raw - cooked - vegan - fruit - raw animal foods
etc etc - lots and lots of experience and ideas. This list is a
of experience and useful information. If you can get into the
I'd recommend a real thorough investigation of what's there -
probably find stories of lots of other people, with lots of the
questions and issues. The archives are at:
This next site, due to open within the next couple of months,
will be by
far the most complete, comprehensive, thorough, and fascinating
the web, covering raw-foodism and every possible issue and
might have. There you'll find scientific articles, personal
humour pieces, book reviews, loads of useful links, essays,
advice, just chock full of really great info.
You mentioned the B12 issue as a concern - here's a great
written originally as a post to this list, but you'll find it at
site above, also ...
Hope those sites provide some starting points for some useful
Now I have to run - to my own big family birthday party
then out to chop down a Christmas tree that we found in the
our house, then to a potato-latke candle-lighting Hannukah party
neighbors, then to make some secret follow-up calls to some of
guests invited to a surprise 50th birthday party we're throwing
after christmas, then to shop at the local 24-hour supermarket
ingredients for healthy raw salad dressings, and crock-pot stew
ingredients, to teach how to cook to a client tomorrow. By that
should be about 2 am ugh.
Anyway - congratulations again, and good luck handling the new
through this holiday season! This is the trickiest time of the
