:)Hello to everyone.
I'm new to raw only a few months and finding it tough going.
My wife is a nurse and totally doesn't believe in it.
I of course think she pushes toxic poison passing as medication, then a friend says join a raw forum to help keep you on the path.
Any advice would be truely welcome.

Get Alissa's book and DVD.....maybe your wife will watch the DVD or flip through the book, if you have it sitting out. They really are great, if anything you'll love them. Good Luck.

Thanks for the advice.
It's not so much the cooking I do that for myself, it's everything else i.e. lifestyle etc. I also have two Boys (12 &10 ) and feel really sorry for them because they are been torn.
I can't tell them that I think your mom is not looking after you correct (cakes, ice cream & burgers/hot dogs etc) she is their mom, but I try my best to give them the correct food/water but they have her telling them I'm going over the top & there is nothing wrong with coke etc (she loves it).
I'll keep trying & hopefully as they get older they will understand I was only doing it for them.
I have stress every night trying to give them Vitamin C & mulitvitamins

I hope you can find enough delicious stuff here to eat that your kids and your wife are craving your foods!
I think I have to remember "Attraction Not Promotion" -- if someone feels I am pushing then they will push back; and if they feel I am judging or criticizing, they will defend their position. I've figured out that much, but haven't always figured out how not to push myself, etc..
And I felt it coming the other way towards me -- when I really am doing my best but someone is perfectionistic about it, their attitude only keeps me from progressing. I'm thinking of someone who I know has some pieces of the puzzle I need, but we don't feel we can ask because he is so judgemental about some choices we are making that are not the same as his. (Is that convoluted, lol?) He literally purses his lips and gives a slight jerk to his head -- he won't come out and say, "I believe that is bad," but he can't save his body image from doing it. <G> So we feel we can't ask for his help on other stuff. Hope that makes sense...
Attraction not promotion, and approval of the best someone can do.

Thanks, that does make sense and I probably do push to much. But when I see my boys with yet another choc bar or burger I find it hard not to say something. I just want them healthy but I hear you.

English, I apologize -- I got on a roll! <G> It was just something I'd been thinking about lately in my own life. Again, I hope you can find some very good recipes here that your family will be attracted to share with you. :)

Youíve nothing to apologize for you are probably correct.
With something as important as health itís hard not to become overbearing but itís something I must try not to become.
We have had arguments and unfortunately a couple have been in front of the boys, but we have opposing views on everything health related.
Especially with my youngest, he is healthy but is always catching colds etc and is always the first in his class to catch a bug, and then I see her give him crap thatís going to knock his health even more.
Believe me Iíve talked & talked, weíve watched Dr Lorraine Day and ordered her DVDíS (I would advise anyone to listen to her www.drday.com ), weíve got the Raw for 30 days DVD I could go on, but itís in one ear & out the other with her.
We are at a impasse she wonít change and I wonít let my boys eat rubbish.
I'm tired and feel terrible.
