If you’re thinking of transitioning to a raw food lifestyle, you may well be asking yourself: “What will people say?”
One of the most common issues people have with eating raw is worrying about the social ramifications. Will you suddenly become a social outcast, or will people think you’re a “weirdo”?
Isn’t it ironic that when we try to look after ourselves better, especially through food, that the people around us so often try to talk us out of it, stand in our way, tempt us, tease us, make life a little bit difficult or just make negative comments that, sooner or later, often end up derailing us? It’s so easy to succumb, if only for an easier life.
If aliens visited our planet and observed what we ate, what we considered food and how we treated our most valuable possession, I suspect that they would run off laughing or shaking their heads in disbelief! And yet our immediate families typically think that the more processed and junk food they feed us, the more “loving” and “caring” they are being! We do know that they mean well, but really...?
Time for a little reframing maybe?
