@Vee--I get my chia seeds mailed in, as I have never been able to find them in Doha. @Malaz--I am sure that it is more difficult to be raw vegan here than other places, but you work with it. The local green stuff--parsley, palak (spinach), bok choy, coriander, and other random green things are plentiful and cheap. It's nice that the local cucumbers do not have wax on them. I don't know of any workshops to introduce you to raw veganism, but if you call Nicole @ www.artofabundantliving.com she might have some ideas.
This lady has a supplier listing for the Middle East region as well as different restaurants and where to buy certain stuff online. www.girlonraw.com -based in KSA
Thanks ladies for the info, is it very difficult to be raw vegan in Doha? I can have my mother send me all organic products needed from back home, does people do that ususally?also does any one klnow if there is a workshop i can register to to introduce me to raw veganism here in Qatar ?.
RedHat Did you find chia seeds in Doha?
Malaz,You should join the "More Raw & Detox" Facebook group that Carolina mentioned. I am a member as well. Also, there are the http://artofabundantliving.com workshops to help you search out others for support.I am starting my sixth month of being raw vegan and I love it and I don't think I'll ever go back. I just feel too good. I have a friend here in Doha that will be going to the Hippocrates Health Institute for three weeks this summer http://www.hippocratesinst.org/ and another that just grew wheatgrass for the first time and is making her own crackers in her dehydrator. My last weeks raw successes: chocolate ice cream (Ben & Jerry quality but healthy), Alfredo sauce over zucchini noodles, lots of green smoothies (one was really gross though), raw lemon poppy seed cupcakes with rich lemony icing, my strawberry ice cream was meh, ummm..., fresh coconut milk (my one daughter has declared this her dairy replacement), coconut milk chia pudding with goji berries (didn't like the goji berries), miso soup with lots of sea weed and spirilized carrots
Yes, there are. https://www.facebook.com/groups/209995425679857/445347832144614/?notif_t=group_activityThis is their fb site.
