In this video I tell how raw and vegan I’m (took it after a long day, so I’m slightly tired). You can actually guess this from my last post on raw food staples.
It’s a bit tedious, so below I’m summarizing the important points.
The short answer is no.
Long answer: it depends on the season.
I’d say I’m close to being 100% raw during summer.
In the winter, about 93-100% raw.
Depends on the season, partially. Here are 3 non-plant supplements that I take:
1. Raw egg yolks
During winter I take organic raw egg yolks for vitamin B12. On average, it adds to about 2-4 per month.
2. Fermented cod liver oil & butter oil blend (raw)
In the last 2 years, I’ve been taking fermented cod liver oil & butter oil blend.
I take it primarily for my eyes. The thing is, I have a moderate nearsightedness (had it before going raw vegan). Whereas vitamins A and D help with many eye conditions.
I also take it for my teeth. I did a couple mistakes in my first years on this diet. Which made my teeth more prone to cavities. So, I’m trying to strengthen/regrow dentin and enamel in some places. Yeah, it’s possible. I had two small cavities that got arrested. Thanks to good amounts of vitamins K2, D, and A in these oils.
Ideally, I need to be taking this blend year round.
3. Ground eggshell powder
The last one, a ground eggshell powder. Including the eggshell membrane (the thin lining that lines the inside of the eggshell).
I take it for any essential minerals that I may miss or not get enough from foods. Such as iron and calcium. Very good availability (1)!
I take it all year round.
