Going raw has been a profound experience for me. I felt many benefits from "going raw" in the first few days, and incredible results after 15 weeks on rawfood. I have an entry written at that time here: Six Benefits of Going Raw -- Some Entirely Unexpected.
I have additional recipes, including juice recipes, on my food pyramid page which contains a full day sample of what a day on the raw vegan diet might look like if you followed my food pyramid.
Some people think that a raw diet might be too restrictive.
- Less than 1% of plants are toxic to consume for humans.
- Less than 1% of all the edible foods in the world are available in your grocery store.
That means that even if you ate every single type of produce at your grocery store, you're still missing 99% of the variety available in the world. By growing your own herbs, shopping at farmer's markets, ordering a few things online, and trying everything available in the produce section at your grocery store, you can eat a wider variety of food than you ever did previously.
In addition to the recipes posted below, I also offer nutritionally complete meal plans which contain everything you need to follow a raw vegan diet successfully.

For sweetening I use figs, dates, dried apricots, raisins, dried pineapple, fresh banana, frozen banana, dried banana, etc. I do not use stevia, agave, xylitol, yaccon, honey, molasses, etc.
Refined sugar is harmful. I personally have severe reactions (muscle cramps, migraines, etc) to stevia and agave just as though they were white sugar, or high fructose corn syrup. You can still make delicious treats without sugar additives, why bother using them?
