New Word: Crudivore

by Kristen Suzanne in raw

For those of us eating a Raw diet, did you know there is a term used to describe our eating behavior that goes beyond the typical “Raw” which is so commonly used? There is! We’re called crudivores (pronounced like crude, as in unrefined, unprocessed). Throw that term around at the next party you attend. Check out more here (it’s really cool!). More specifically, for my purposes and most others living the Raw lifestyle (who omit animal products and by-products), we should call ourselves vegan crudivores.

If you google crudivore, you’ll see that there are about 6,000 results which is very low. Even lower are the results you get when googling vegan crudivore (about 800). To put that into perspective, herbivore yields about 1.4 million results.
