Hello everyone. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was raw and stayed raw for a while. She was raw for the first year. But eventually we went to SAD. I don't know why. My son was mostly raw at that time but I never got him to go completely raw with me.
Now my children are 8 and 4 (well, almost. His birthday is in a few weeks and hers is in a month). They have a mostly healthy diet. They eat a lot of fruits and veggies for snacks. I rarely buy junk food. They do eat meat though my daughter doesn't like it much and prefers pasta or veggies for dinner.
I'm going raw again for health issues (can't seem to digest cooked food anymore without really bad pain). I'm sort of glad these digestive issues came up since I've been wanting to go raw but having trouble sticking with it.
I would love for my kids to go raw and maybe even my husband. I'm making one new raw food a week (so I don't get overwhelmed). Today I made Cinnamon Granola (got the recipe from this site). My son helped me. We made it before he had to go to school and it's dehydrating now. It should be done by the time he gets home (just checked on it and it's almost done now).
Anyway...I would love for my family to all go raw with me. I know my husband won't go completely raw because he has this theory that men are meant to eat meat because of the testosterone. I don't know where he heard that, some musscle mag. I at least want my kids to go raw. I plan to make one new dish a week and see if the kids like it. Sort of sneak it in there. If they don't like it then we'll work on something else.
Think that will work? Any of you who have raw kids...how did you do it?
