I was so nervous posting the last video of what I feed Lake in a day, because as you would've seen here, it revealed why I'm not bringing her up fully vegan.
Although I'm the biggest advocate for plant-based living that I know, I never actually stated in all of my years of blogging that I am 100% vegan or 100% raw for that matter myself.
But, since my blog was called 'Better Raw', the general perception was that there is no way my diet can be anything but...
I knew that when posting the video, a few people might react negatively to the news and I mentally prepared to say goodbye to a lot of subscribers.
Knowing that the most important thing to me is the health of my family and being authentic, I felt comfortable showing the world how I prepare my child her eggs 3-4 times per week, because not only have I done a mad amount of research around this topic, I also didn't want anyone to get the wrong idea and to keep following my posts believing they were following a strictly vegan mother.
As anticipated, some words no one wants to hear came my way.
As anticipated, some people unsubscribed and unfollowed.
To my shock however, the support and words of encouragement flooded in overwhelming volumes.
The amount of emails, comments and love that came our way brought me to tears.
For the millionth time in my life, the gratitude I felt towards this community was too much to bear.
Thank you for sticking around and for letting me speak my truth. I literally feel like it is YOU that I write to every time I blog. So, thank you for that.

I love you.
You are the best.
P.S. Don't worry, I'm not going all carnivorous on you, it's only plants and eggs that we're talking here. Mostly plants though.
