I believe it’s better to eat more fruits than veggies :) my favourite way to eat veggies is in a soup, just throw whatever veggies you have into a pot with some water (I love adding a can of tomato paste too) and it’s soo delicious. And I always eat rice with it! My next favourite way to eat vegetables is just to steam them and eat them with pasta or rice or potatoes :) veggies you could steam or put in your soup are: carrots, cabbage, squash, kale, potatoes, celery, bok choy, Swiss chard, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli and more!
Not really no, basically all he says is “carb the fuck up” so if you can’t understand him that’s perfectly fine and you are probably better off not watching his videos anyways
Probably! Try to eat more whole foods and more raw foods, I have heard that will really help :) Honestly I’ve never had itchy skin or anything so I can’t really help you from experience, maybe some of my followers will be able to help more
I really suggest you go on youtube and watch some footage of chicken farms to help you stay away from that. If you had cravings you might not have been eating enough calories! Eating meat only makes anemia worse, you can easily get your nutrients from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Eat things like spinach, kale, potatoes, bananas, figs, berries, quinoa, and more and you will get all of the nutrients that you need
I haven’t watched this yet myself, but I have heard that cowspiracy is a really amazing documentary! and I recently read Eating Animals, by Jonathan Foer and that gave tons of facts and statistics about the meat industry and the affect it has on the environment. Good luck <3
Nope I don’t feel the need to
Watch my youtube video where I gave some tips and explained what I do, I hope it will help <3
'oh but you would say that you're veeeegan' as if that closes the argument! Or when I said I didn't want honey my dad told my sister 'don't ask her why' meaning 'don't open up that discussion because I think it's stupid + I don't want to hear it'. They don't even engage with the point just shut it down. It's like they are rolling their eyes at me verbally. This is really difficult to deal with :( any advice?
Awe :( My family is annoying like that too, the best thing you can do is just ignore to the best of your ability and don’t act like it bothers you, because if they know it does they will keep bothering you. And talk to people who understand and accept you more, so many people here on tumblr deal with the same thing so sending people messages like you just did to me is a great way to start. I hope your family stops acting like that in the near future <3
If I’m at someone else’s house I just have oatmeal for breakfast and I’m fine :) But when I’m alone or at home I usually have them later on in the day after my fruit. I don’t follow raw till 4 anymore but I still don’t have fruit meals after cooked food meals
It doesn’t sound like many calories at all :( maybe if you had multiple pears and peaches it would be enough for a meal, but that’s probably only 200-300 calories max depending on how many grapes you have
