Another mama longing for a 100% raw vegan diet!
My dh and I have decided that we feel a raw vegan diet would be best for our family. We just recently moved back east and said once we came back here we would really focus on a raw diet. Unfortunately things have been so hectic getting back into the swing of things that I haven't been able to focus on learning more about going raw. We're vegetarians and eat all organic but we really wanna kick out the dairy (we drink soy milk tho) and go raw. Right now we eat like 95% of our veggies (and obviously fruits) raw but am looking forward to going all raw. So glad to find other raw mamas out there to communicate with.
Thanks for the links firefaery. I've been to thegardendiet.com but will definitely be checking the other links out.
Question: What was the toughest part about switching to complete raw?
My concern is family outings and such. It's really hard w/ what we're eating now when we visit family. I cringe when my daughter is offered things that aren't organic. Like when we go to MIL's house for the day or something and are served non-organic food but I feel like I can't say much because I'll sound rude because we are at their
house. And if we brought our own food, dd would see her aunts/uncle/cousin (ages are 15 down to 5) eating different things and want that. How do I make her understand that she can't have what they have? I mean, I already have done that with alot of things, since we're vegetarians and she does understand extremely well but..I dunno..I just feel like dealing w/ family outings is gonna be a big struggle. What kind of experiences have you mamas had?
