    I'm happy eating vegan. I don't even think about raw. That seems like another restriction which is not required.
    It can be healthy, but so can a non-raw vegan diet.  If it works for people great. I want my grains, potatoes, and cooked vegetables though.

    So it's all fun and games when vegans share so much misinformation about cooked vs raw food? Makes one wonder how well these same folks are able to comprehend some of the studies around meat/dairy or other research. Doesn't say much for the depth of our medical/nutritional understanding in general that they can't come to a consensus on raw vs. cooked foods.

    I went almost full vegan, when I started to have gall bladder problems. I turned around and went from 254lbs at the beginning of my pregnancy down to 215lbs after the baby was born. I will tell you this, I was happier animal product free and now that I have been back on animal products, i have gained weight I have become moody and I have honestly decided I  should switch back over. However Freelee and Durianrider really are extremists. I can't afford to eat like them but since finding ya'll I have had alot more success sticking to my vegan diet. Please post more recipes!

    I was diagnosed w/ Crohn's disease a few months ago & find a regimented vegan diet to be the optimum chose for me (I'm about 50%-75% raw), thus I love your videos & the positive energy y'all radiant via Utube; I must "thank" the both of  you for sharing.

    PS  O'er 45?!… Wow, y'all look younger & healthier than the generic 40yr ol' archetype.

    Ya'll, I was watching a documentary, and the host explained that cooking is like a predigestion. So cooking food certain foods may be healthful, for your stomach. Plus chewing and and sucking the juices out of your veggies or fruit is good to. When I'm thinking about it* 😉 I'll try to chew until my food is like a liquid then swallow.

    I really like this video. I eat mostly raw during the day and in the evening I eat pretty much like you guys. But, I have found, just like your friend, that I have trouble digesting the cooked food. I have not been pure raw for years on end, but I am in my sixties and that may have something to do with my poor digestion. Since I don't seem to be able to be 100% raw (I just like a little cooked vegan food) it was suggested to me to supplement with enzymes. I did this and Bam no more problems digesting food. I thought all the talk about enzymes in raw foods was hooey for a long time. I take two capsules at the beginning of a cooked meal and all is well.
