View Full Version : Helping my mom....
03-04-2008, 09:51 AM
My mom has been against the idea of a raw diet for as long as I can remember, but has recently been trying the pH miracle diet, from my understanding is similar to a raw foods, but not the same....she is coming to visit me for a week on March 18th, and I want to try to show her as many benefits as possible by eating with me....any suggestions on what to do?
She is fairly young (44), and is suffering from many ailments, so I think she would GREATLY benefit!

sounds like a raw diet to me. although i didn't listen to much... but you two should be able to eat together easily!
ps i'm 44 as well... not old at all!

Hi Kaylene, first I have to say I think you're an amazing person. Your husband is onto raw and now you will influence your mom. I think this is really wonderful and a testament to your shining spirit. Obvious in your beautiful, glowing picture.
I think having samples of food ready for her to try would help. Easy, fast recipes you know. Alissa's mock salmon pate is really good and easy to make! Spread it on some nori sheets and add a slice of avocado or two, sprinkle with some ACV (apple cider vinegar) and instant sushi. So good! Then she can see how flavorful raw food can be and how easy it is to prepare. Then you can explain the health benefits. Just some suggestions.

Why don't you get the "the pH miracle diet" book to learn what foods are the same? Then you can find common ground. It will show your mom that you are interested in her and not just telling her you are right.

Yes. Prepare many wonderful dishes, and print her out some basic articles and pictures! Should be fun...and quality time! Get across the message how happy and healthy you are.....and how successful....without specifically preaching the 'diet'. Refer her to Alissa's books and other materials....and this website.....if she wants to find out more. Be a happy, succesful, wired-tight individual...and people will WANT what you're having! ;)

Thank you all for your ideas! I think it will be an amazing time...I want to be really low key and fun for the two of us--I have started researching the pH diet and it does seem similar to eating raw, so I am guessing that there won't be TOO many differences, but I want to show her all the FABULOUS recipes and all the amazing things that she ca eat--she is very much on the mindset (with the pH thing and raw) that it is just a bunch of fruit and some salad...so I am getting geared up to be "cooking" the whole time she is here!

Just have Alissa's book out somewhere so she can look through it all on her own. Then she'll be asking you questions and it won't be you bringing it up. Good Luck.

So my mom and I were talking last night and she was asking more and more questions about eating raw---so I told her how helpful the forum has been for me...I hope she joins us!
