For those of you who watch your loved ones eating SAD, I just want to say keep eating raw and be their inspiration. I've been back and forth between high raw and 100% raw for 2.5 years. I'm not perfect and sometimes that fact gets me down, but today I realized that I'm doing so much better than in the past and I'm having a positive affect on those around me. To date, my dad (a meat and potatos guy that likes to tease me that "chemicals" are good for you) is now drinking green smoothies daily after I asked him to read "Green for Life"; my mother-in-law is now 50% raw; my brother is drinking green juice with me daily and eats vegan most days of the week; and my husband (also a meat and potatos guy) joins me for a salad almost every day. So keep at it. As my dad likes to say "monkey see, monkey do."
