    That's great advice. It's so much more positive, peaceful, and productive to just say "I'm just trying to eat healthier". I saw how it kept the lines of communication open and free from strife. Ease, comfort. That's a great story. Thanks for sharing. ?❤️

    I've done this and it works. great advice 🙂 people think you are extreme when you start using words like "raw," "vegan," and "fruitarian." But no one protests when you just say you are trying to eat healthier. People mean well, but they are just so defensive and insecure about their own habits they feel threatened when they see someone else doing what they know they should. It's messed up, but that's just the human psyche.

    I love this video. I have such a hard time telling people that I'm a rawfoodist. Everyone seems to debate me. I feel that a lot of women turn cold towards me when they know I'm a rawfoodist. I think they think I'm a stick in the mud or a snob. I have learned the hard way to never talk about it. That's why I watch youtube videos of other rawfoodist people. I like to comment on videos and maybe one day make my own. Yay for youtube and all the raw vegans????

    Great tip, thank you! I will start using it. I get asked about my shopping EVERY SINGLE TIME and it's flipping exhausting 'cos on one side you want to share and help other people, but on the other side I just want to quickly do my shopping and get on with my day and not get into a debate over what is and isn't healthy every time, right? It's sad that we still live in the world where buying a lot of fresh fruits and veggies is looked at as unusual or weird if not accompanied by loads of junk.
    Anyways, thanks for another great tip.
    Lots of love & fruit on as you say ? xx

    I HATE when cashiers ask about or comment about my food! Gosh! Sometimes it makes me want to buy really embarrassing stuff – like a lot of it – just to see if they'd COMMENT then? They pick up my stuff. They turn it around. They read it. …
    Aren't they just supposed to scan it through and then nicely ask me for $ and then say thank you and I say thank you and we both agree to have a nice day? GAWD… This has always always always annoyed me. And it's both men and women. They all do it. One time I called a manager (years ago) at a store where every time I would buy cat food I would get comments like, how many cats do you have, wow that's a lot of cat food, wow, you feed a lot of cats? Well, that depends. I have some cats and I need to feed them – now shut up and scan the food!! I don't have any more cats so I don't have to go through that crap anymore with the cashiers. Now, for my dogs I go to pet stores who could care less how much food you happen to buy your animals.

    GAWD.

    Anyway, so I complained to the manager, and he said, get this: they are just being friendly.

    Uggh.

    I said, I was a cashier once and I never commented to anyone about their purchases because I thought it was common courtesy not to. To be friendly, I'd say hello, thank you, thanks for coming by, come again, have a wonderful day…..

    PS, great vid as usual.

    This is exactly me right now. I have also used this method, I guess sort of to keep myself safe and from being judged. I tend to explain it to friends and family by saying "I'm trying to eat healthier. I'm experimenting with decreasing animals products in my diet. The research I have done says it has a lot of health benefits, so I want to try it for at least a year." I also exclude phrases like "vegan" and "good for the environment" and "better for the animals" because a lot of people just really don't want to get it. Meat tastes good and ignorance is bliss.
