I’m a 100% raw foodist, and I’m really horrid! Are you?
This morning I dared to complain to a raw food company that some of the food in the ‘raw food section’ of their website wasn’t raw, at all, (eg the muesli contained roasted hemp, the almond drink contained rice, and (sure, obviously not raw) …dried pasta) – in other words, we’re not talking about the fine points of agave nectar processing here! The strongest word I used was ‘disappointed’, I put the pasta in capitals, and used one or two explanation marks.
The company, who I have always supported in the past, sent by return e-mail a blistering attack on me, reducing me to tears (yes, I know – I’m over-sensitive!), accused me of being ‘aggressive’, used the term ‘raw food police’ (oh that one again!) and referred to me as ‘people like you’.
Although it was horrible to receive this from those I had thought of as friends, it did drive me to write an article that has been a long time building up…
Have any raw foodists (that’s the kind that don’t eat any cooked food – you know, as people used to understand the term?) felt more criticised for their food choices within the raw food community than outside it?
If so, you’re not alone. Here’s my blog article on this today (with thanks to XXXX – the company who shall remain nameless).
Do comment via the blog – would love to hear from you…
Love, Debbie Took
