I am not 100% raw 100% of the time. In the summer, I am pretty much 100 % raw, but as the cooler weather approaches I find myself eating homemade veggie soups, steamed or baked veggies. When I became vegan I found myself eating tons of grains and beans. I really felt puffy and bloated from them. So to this day I rarely eat them. If I do I know I’ll be puffy for about 3 days after.
