Today my mom and i went to the doctors and talked to her about me being a raw vegan and it went totally fine. Other than the doctor saying that i need to get a source for protine she said that i am perfectly healthy. She is reccomending that i drink like a protine shake like spiruten. have any of you guys tried this? how do you guys get your protine?
Anyway this is what made me really angry. We wents to a local well known health food store to get some vitaman supplements for me and the woman in charge knew nothing about a raw vegan diet yet she told my mom that i will most likely get sick and die from being raw! She said that there was no way for anyone to live on a diet of completly raw foods and my poor my was freaking out. We had just had a really good talk and she was understanding and willing to compromise and work with me and then this woman told her that i am going to die because im not eating meat. >:( I am thinking to myself i am a member of a online community of people who are raw and they all seem to be in perfect health to me.
So i am wondering mainly how do you guys get your protine?
Spiruten - have you heard of it, do you drink it?
Do you take any vitaman supplements?
