Living between people who are on the standard American diet, you can be considered as an outcast because of what you eat. But be confident always to share to everyone that you are a raw vegan.
Tarah Shannon of 40belowfruity.com is a fruity raw vegan living in the cold climate of the interior of British Columbia, Canada.
It’s amazing, because even with all the low temperatures that she has to face, Tarah is able to warm and inspire us with raw vegan social life tips that can help you keep your raw vegan diet in any social gatherings.
Improve Your Raw Vegan Social Life with these Tips
The video was taken while Tarah was in her workplace. While everybody else ate burger and drunk beer, Tarah arrived with her fruits, vegetables and a 10 pounds vitamix blender. Wow! She might really look weird with her 10 pounds blender. But then this is already her way of life. She is determined to stand out with her diet even if she looks different to others.
Here are some of the great tips we can learn from Tarah.
- Always keep in mind that preparation is the key
- Put the success of your diet in your own hands
- If you rely on others on how much you need to eat and to provide food for you then you are setting yourself up for failure. You’ve always got to be prepared because not everybody knows how much food you need to eat and what food you enjoy to eat.
- If anyone has a problem with what you are eating, just be open and be honest about your lifestyle.
Tarah is always prepared. She goes out and have fun with her friends while keeping her raw vegan diet.
Tarah brought two and a half smoothies, salad meal, dressing ingredients, and fresh orange juice to work. She had about 2400 calories for that day which is good enough to keep her energized.
Finally, Tarah told us not to be afraid to stand out and it’s okay to be weird and a little bit crazy as long as you keep your healthy vibrant lifestyle.
With your raw vegan social life, who knows, you might even influence your co-workers and friends to follow the same diet with you.
