if you've told your children where meat comes from why don't you tell them where dairy comes from as well?

I have. They don’t eat dairy at home. There is only so much a 3 year old can understand. I also feel like there is more chance of them carrying on a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle throughout their lives if I show them some compromise.

Message me again and tell me how it goes when you take your first child to their best friends birthday and tell them they cannot have anything. Or perhaps you might be one of those parents who decides to avoid those situations because its easier and damage your child’s social skills and friendships instead.
It would be a nice dream if we could have all vegan friends who had vegan children but unfortunately this is the real world and I am the only vegan I know.

Who likes my new Protein Shaker??!! We do very little plastic in our house as I believe its damaging to both our health and the environment and the one thing I had trouble replacing my protein shakers, that was until I found these little babies! Recap Mason lids! I chucked a ball in to help it blend and hey presto!  Protein shaker! It doesn’t leak when you shake either!

Have u heard of anne osborne or ellen fisher? Do u think its healthy to raise a child on a raw 801010 lifestyle? Would u ever consider it?

Yes I have heard of them. No I wouldn’t raise my child on 801010. While I encourage my children to eat as much raw food as they can I would not make them follow any kind of “diet” that limits any macro nutrients. Particularly fat. Growing children need a good balance of carbs, fats and protein. I do know that Ellen does feed Elvis higher than 10% fats because she knows he needs it.

Also, I am also not ever going to take my child to a birthday party or such and tell them that a food is unhealthy and they can’t eat it. Or make them watch as their friends enjoy and they cant. I think its sets a tone for the rest of their lives if they are told things like that. I prefer to say that this is a “sometimes food”. And I believe they eat healthy enough to be able to have something nice occassionally. Its funny because generally they take a few bites of a cake and just leave it!
The children however, will not eat meat though of their own accord. Since I explained what it is and where it comes from they are particularly saddened when they see others eating it.

what do you think of 'Go Raw Original 100%' (it's raw granola) 1/3 cup serving, 5% of fat so it's low fat and the ingredients are (all organic) sprouted buckwheat groats, flax seed, dates, raisins. that's it. would you say it's bad? how about adding to banana smoothies? food combining and all that. do you eat granola? I don't want to gain weight. would it be best to eat alone if peckish? I believe it's gluten free too..

I have never seen it! But if you want to eat it, and you are happy with the nutritional info, go for it! I certainly don’t think its “bad”. I try to stay away from labeling things as bad, I just believe there are things we should eat lots of and things we should eat less of X
