www.abbeysvegetarianrecipes.com . Since then, over 13,000 people have
visited and signed up to receive free vegan recipes by email.
Trevor has been a vegetarian for 21 years, and eats about 70% raw
food. When people guess his age, and discover that he's actually ten
years older, he smiles and credits his wholesome diet. However, he
hasn't been 100% free of health problems.
After losing a tooth in 2002, a holistic dentist turned him on to the

friends. He was surprised to discover that, for some, going raw led
to more tooth decay. Luckily, he's uncovered some secrets to
Over the last two years, because of digestive problems, Trevor became
an expert on proper food combining, said goodbye to processed foods,
and now makes virtually all of his recipes from scratch.
In the interest of saving time, he's developed "quick versions" of
many of his favorite recipes. What's more, he's tweaked them so
they'll be easier to digest. Now you can benefit from his experiences.
