Glad to have found you!

I am a mother of nine, and we decided to go raw in November of 2005. We follow an 80% raw diet, with added whole grains and some cooked food in the colder months.

My children range in ages from 22 to brand new, so I am very busy. We love the way eating raw makes us feel--and we look forward to sharing recipes here and gaining some knowledge!

Some of the positive aspects of going raw have been:
  • my six year old daughter's autism symptoms lessened dramatically
  • my children homeschool a lot better
  • my rosacea is gone
  • my oldest daughter does not bleed when she menstruates anymore
  • my last pregnancy was better than my first
  • my 1 1/2 year old daughter who has been about 95% raw her entire life has been sick only once with a sniffly nose
  • my four year old son healed an abcessed tooth with green smoothies
  • I lost 63 pounds in 2 months
  • my husband and I have dramatically improved our sex life!

That's just the few I have time for right now! It has been an incredible journey and we love it!!
...The world beckons vainly...why should I roam?
While peace and content bless my little...cottage and warm my own hearth with the treasures of home.

Talking Hi rawmama!

Hi! I am very excited to see a parent on here! I hope you share all your parenting tips on how to raise raw kids. (I really need some!)

I am most likely in the minority here, but 9 kids sounds amazing! I am looking forward to learning more about you and your family.
