View Full Version : Poll on Raw/SAD Diet in Households
Just a quick question. I was wondering how many people who live with others in a family (or partner) are the only one eating Raw in the household. I was just curious about this since I am the only one eating raw in my household. All the other members in my family eat some raw food but the majority is SAD.

I am the only one because I am the sole household.
Myself and my wife eat raw. My kids do not. They eat a lot of fruits and veggies, but I let them be kids and have their snacks as well. They enjoy them. :) I think the mental enjoyment for them is as positive as health benefits for them. If I east SAD I feel bad so it is not the same. :(

I have a partner who eats raw with me about 40% of the time...or eats it with me, but also grabs some BBQ wings. lol!
Sometimes it's tempting but whenever I cave I find myself wishing I'd chosen the raw food for taste alone!
Russ- Your approach sounds really caring and balanced. I'll bet your kids are healthy on an inner and outer level!
It's just me. The rest of my family is not raw.

I am the only one 100% at this time. Dh is incorporating more into his SAD diet, and the two adult children still living at home are vegetarians (btw, they purchase and prepare their own meals). Other daughter and her family are also vegetarians. ~ Cathy

eats this way. However, my dh does eat SAD food when away from home. He HAS to. But when he retires, we'll all be 100%. The kids have been 100% since April 1st.:D

I am the only one in my family who's 100%. My Husband and 3 girls are about 80%. They still eat ww bread, brown rice and soy milk. I bake all the breads so at least I know what's going in it! Both my husband and oldest daughter have said they would go 100%, but with the stuff in the house it's so easy to make a sandwitch! My little girls are kind of picky eaters, so I worry that they might not get enough if I cut out all the sad stuff. Although I'm learning that you can hide a whole lotta greens, something my 3 year old won't touch, in a smoothie. ;) I'm planning a slower transition for them. I agree, they love their bread, rice and soy milk, so I'm not going to worry about it too much!

All of us are raw (myself, my hunny, and our 3 boys). Our zoo of pets are the only ones that haven't converted, lol.

Its just me and my SO but he doesn't eat a SAD and haven't since he was a kid probably. He's been vegan most of his life, but recently incorporated fish and grass fed eggs into his diet because cooked vegan had him feeling crappy from a lack of quality protein.
He is now eating A LOT of my raw food and hope to eat closer to my diet eventually.

Whole house is raw when i'm raw! My family LOVES raw and feels much better eating raw. It's only when I start letting things slip back in that everyone goes off raw again too.

It's just me and my child, I am the only one raw, I am working on him though;) .

Just me :) My parents don't eat SAD though!

It is just me eating raw (I am not 100% raw yet), but since I started eating raw most of my family eats a whole lot better.

My family is high raw -they eat whatever I make as I am the only one who (un)cooks-lol, however they will "make" a sandwhich or something not raw. We are moving in the right direction -more and more raw-and for that I am thankful. We tend to stick together as a family... my husband was thrilled that I found something that made me feel good and wants to do whatever it took to "take good care " of me. I think it is all about the reason why for us, if that makes sence..I just told him how excited I was and he saw a differance in my actions(calm, cool(well almost) and collected)...oh wow I am way OT oops any how ...have a great day/night

I'm the only one in my house eating raw. My mom thinks it's crazy to just live off raw food and she tries to make me eat SAD! My dad, brother, sister, and her boyfriend all eat SAD too.
