One good thing

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Apr 25, 2008

Hey Robyn,

I just want to thank you for not focusing on what OTHER raw foods blogs tend to focus on.   They tend to bring me down with all this  talk about being kind to animals.   Of COURSE we should be kind to animals…however…there’s this dark heavy vibe that a lot of people on a vegan/vegetarian diet tend to exude.   Which I think is totally COUNTER to the LIGHTNESS we are after, on a raw foods diet.   I haven’t been on it long, and yet I can sense this already. Yes, we should be kind to animals, however we should also be kind to  PEOPLE..especially ourselves, which is the aim of a raw foods diet.  Hope I’m not being ‘politically incorrect’ in mentioning this; it’s just something that came to my attention today.  

Bright Blessings, Shelly

    As with all things, positivity, light, and energy convert more than criticism, darkness, and an appeal to fear. Also, I don’t think that people on the same team (we’re all working toward a whole-food, plant-rich diet here) should attack one another just because our primary motivation is different. I wish I could convince my daughter of this: she’s 12 and in the emotional maturity zone she’s in. But you don’t convert people to vegetarianism or a healthy lifestyle with combat. 🙂
