View Full Version : hopefully soon to be 100% raw
Hey, everyone! Just came across this site yesterday and I think it's great. I've been really interested in eating this way for some time now, just haven't gone all the way yet. I'm now about 85% raw. Just ordered Alissa's book today and can't wait to read it. I'm now 25 years old, have a 9 month old boy. And it seems since I gave birth I've been getting some sinus problems. Hoping that all goes away after I commit to eating totally raw. The only thing holding me back is my husband, who's big on eating everything non-raw. lol. Anyone else out there who's husband will never give up the meat and potatoes. How do you do it when it comes to sharing meals and stuff??

dont let your husband hold you back if raw is the way you want to go.
i dont have a husband but i have a boyfriend, we own a house together, who is a meat/potatoes/junk kind of guy. we eat our own meals and always have. he'll try some of my food on occasion but he doesnt enjoy it as much as what he's used to..not too open to change i guess.

Welcome to the boards. I'm new too. This is Day 5 for me. And I'm feeling pretty good. I suggest posting a food journal in this site as it's helped me tremendously to be accountable for what I eat.
Also, there are a lot a people on these boards that have husband and families that don't eat raw. And they still cook for them on top of making raw meals for themselves. You'll find a lot of support here.
Good Luck in your Journey.

I would have asked the same thing but my hisband has now given up the meat and makes his own green smoothie every day. He cooks a large pot of veg and potatoe for his dinner most days and has traded the melted cheese on toast breakfast for beans on toast. It is far from raw but Rome wasn't built in a day.
In time your husband will change when he sees the positive effects it has on you and use every oppertunity to drop a little info into the conversation as regards cancer rates on raw and things like that. You may not think that it is sinking in but it probably is.

I plan on cooking on the weekends for him, and then doing mything durning the week. I can make two or three meals, then freeze them or put them in the fridge to just be reheated for him. I think that will help me avoid temptation by having to cook every night. I do the cooking as I enjoy it and if left to his own my husband would eat out or only eat chilli or bean soup. *lol* It's better if I cook for him, at least I can make it as healthy as I can that way.
Thanks for your help guys!!
