Here's a conversation I just had on facebook. I think it's amazing that, Lisa, a mom with no vegetarian back-ground, wants to support her 15 year old daughter to become a vegetarian. Incredible, right? Of course Lisa has questions, everything she has learned tells her that her daughter will not get enough protein or nutrients, but she is open-minded enough to want to support her daughter. I think she's a wonderful Mom!!
michael, i have a question for you
chelsea is 15 and wants to be a vegetarian
do you think she's too young
no of course not.
we are born vegetarians
she showed me and victor a you tube on why to become a one...it was quite interesting
I'll ask you a question: When you see a dead dear on the side of the road, do you think about getting out of the car to open it's belly with your mouth? Or, rather if you saw an apple truck, would you think about eating an apple?
yea, i hear you....definitely the apple.
when she showed us the video, it was heartbreaking seeing the animals
of course! We cook meat to make it palatable. If we didn't, we wouldn't eat it.
I know, you make perfect sense. I just hope if Chelsea decides to do this she sticks with it...
she'll need help from you, because she'll be pressured by everybody who thinks they know better. You'll have to help her by giving her a balanced diet. You can be a junk food vegetarian as much as you can be a junk food carnivore.
she's behind me and said she might request you for a friend...i told her she could learn a lot from you...and of course i would
i would be honored
help her with anything she decided to do, that's what us moms do
you're a great mom!
I have started a meet up group for Raw Vegans. We're going to have our first get together on Mother's day. It would be great if you and our daughter came. Or the whole family for that matter.
I can't on Mother's day, Victor is having a party at the Portuguese club and I'm staying home with Nicole...she's bed bound...but let us know the next time
I will. If you would like, google Berkshires Raw Meet Up and join the group.
ok thanks i will. but she wants to know what a raw vegan is.
A raw vegan is a person who eats only uncooked vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
oh OK. ill let her know. thanks
I know it sounds incredible, but I believe that's the way we're supposed to eat. I work 8-10 hours a day, then I train 1-3 hours after that every day, and I feel fantastic!
wow...and you have great energy..
michael, it's always a pleasure talking to you, but i have to get going...thanks for the information..talk to you soon.
talk to you soon... bye

Hey Everyone, Tim VanOrden my wife Ginger and I have formed a raw vegan meetup group for the Berkshires of Ma., southern Vermont, and Albany NY area. This is going to be a fun group. Sure we'll have pot-lucks, but we also plan to do other fun and exciting things, as well. I would love to meet as many raw vegan friends as I can, so if you're in the area be sure to drop by at one of our meetups.
