Hey guys!! Lately I have really been thinking about going full Vegan. When I did the Daniel Fast fast at the beginning of the year, I loved how I felt. It was only for a month, but I was noticing a difference in my body. I can only imagine how amazing I would feel if I ate like that for a year! Sure it is hard and expensive eating healthy... but you know what. I think its worth it in the long run to invest in your health.
The more and more I look at meat and processed foods I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. That food is not good for me. All I see is huge big businesses lying to us and selling us crapy "FAKE" food. You know its not real food when it can literally sit on a shelf for months and months. There is something seriously wrong if your food can still be "safe" to eat after that long of a time.
I've really been wanting to eat more and more organic food lately. I search out fruit and veggies labeled with that wonderful USDA ORGANIC symbol, and the NONGMO symbol. I'm so happy to see those popping up more and more in our local grocery stores!
If I do decide to go full Vegan, I really want to stick with it whole heartedly for an entire year. If I can't make it for a year then I never will. My biggest fear though right now is societal pressure. Being a Vegan or Vegetarian is really looked at strangely by others and I am afraid of people judging me, or thinking I'm weird. I also don't want to be offensive or rude to anyone, or rube them the wrong way. Turning down food people make for dinner or not being able to go eat out at as many restaurants with others might be a problem. But what I just can't understand though is, why is food so important? You know? I mean really why should it matter to someone else what I want to eat? While I am scared of being looked at differently, what it boils down to for me is that, does it really matter? Its just food! And food shouldn't be the only thing that brings people together. If I want to be Vegan I don't feel like its a huge deal. I hope over time people will just get used to it, and maybe be inspired to perhaps even eat a little more veggies or fruits themselves. :)
