Believe it or not, staying and eating healthy while around others who don’t eat like you do is easy. Whether you’re attending a party, gathering, an event, or a picnic, these tips can help with any social occasion.
In this post, I’m going to be share with you tips for the following:
  • how to eat healthy while around others who don’t follow your lifestyle
  • how to eat a raw vegan diet socially

How to Eat and Stay Healthy During Parties & Gatherings
Be Disciplined & Don’t Fall Into the Food Cravings
It can be easy to fall into food temptations, so mastering discipline is going to be a virtue and vital for your success to staying healthy and happy. Before you jump and feed into the food cravings, look at the outcome. Think about how you’re going to feel afterwards. If you satisfy that craving with the unhealthy option(s), you’re going to feel satisfied for just a moment, but then, you’re going to feel guilty and horrible afterwards. So, to avoid this undesirable feeling, it’s best to overlook the outcome before you fall into the craving. This usually helps, I know it does for me. Check out my tips on how to beat cravings.
Bring Your Own Food With You
Besides discipline, this is one of the best tips for staying healthy in social situations, because you’re more prone to eat (and stay) healthy and on track with your healthy eats. Plus, you also have something to share with the people.
***Avoid foods that contain gluten, wheat/grains, sugar, processed flour, white salt, processed oils, and other chemicals.***
How To Eat a Raw Living Diet Socially
Tell People About Your Diet & Communicate With Them
Communicate with the people and do let them know about your diet and lifestyle choices. By letting people know about your diet, it helps them to understand why you stand out from everyone else at the event, who are eating opposite from your diet. Whether they get it or not, move on and continue to stand strong in your beliefs.
You don’t have to be pushy when telling people about your lifestyle choices. Just tell them in a way that gets it across politely and encouraging. Although others around you may not be eating healthy, that’s ok. YOU should set the example of how you’d like others to be. Gandhi quoted, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” This is so true. Be the change. You may even encourage, inspire and motivate others around you to eat healthy.

 

What About The Comments and Naysayers?
Worried about what others are going to say and think about you when you show up with a colossal salad or a bowl of fruit? Don’t be. It’s none of your business what others think or say about you. Stand your ground with your beliefs and dont be afraid. Embrace your diet and choices. You never know who you may inspire by doing so. (even if you don’t, do it for YOU).
 
How to Have a Stress-Free Holiday 
During the holidays, people tend to become more stressful and anxious, It can be so easy to get all caught up with time passing quickly, holiday drama, stress, and presents — that we forget to think about and give time to ourselves. Here are some tips for taking and looking out for YOU.
Meditate 
If you don’t already, start incorporating meditation into your daily lifestyle. Mediate first thing in the morning for at least 20 minutes. This will put your mind in a positive, happy and loving state, relieving stress and promotes mental clarity. Meditation is great for the mind, body and soul, and truly refreshes your mind. Meditation will allow time for YOU.

Take It Easy and Breathe
Stop for a moment and take a deep breathe. Slow down, and take it easy. It can be so easy to get caught up with everything that’s around us, but you can control your environment and emotions. Take it easy and release the stress when you exhale. Don’t be in such a rush. Einstein has always said, ‘time is an illusion’, which is true. Whenever you feel that you’re getting out of your zone (which is your happy, loving state), step back, slow down and take a deep breathe. Be present and in the moment.
Remember this golden rule always: stress is the number one cause of disease. And remember, never eat when you’re in a stressed state. Food is energy and eating in a stressful state of mind will bring your stressed energy into the food, and you won’t be able to digest your food. Eat in peace and eat when you’re happy. Your food will digest properly, because when you’re happy, your cells and body are happy and vibrating at high frequencies.
Traveling As a Raw? Foodists?
Some people may find it difficult to travel and eat a raw foods diet while traveling, but believe it or not, staying raw vegan while traveling is quite easy and simple. I’m going to be writing a post on 0medz0 in the future about how to travel and eat a raw living diet. In that post, I’ll go more in depth about which foods are great to bring with you to travel and more.
So, how do you travel and eat a raw living lifestyle? Here are some tips…
Bring your own food. 
It’s very easy to bring/pack your own food with you during your travels. Premake the foods you’d like to eat while traveling. Good travel raw foods are oranges (citrus fruits), berries, grapes, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, yogurts, juices, smoothies, homemade trail mixes/bars, dehydrated fruits and treats, and so much more! Bring a cooler with you to keep the juices, smoothies, yogurts, and berries cold.
Bringing your own food is properly the best tip when traveling raw. You could also stop by farmer’s markets or supermarkets to pick up food.
Remember, the key to staying healthy during the holiday, is to properly maintain your health.
