It’s been a few months now since giving up all refined sugars, meat and dairy and what a fantastic journey it has been so far. Having a stocked pantry of your dry goods in air-tight jars is something we recently made a point of doing, as it helps to ensure you are getting all of those beans, lentils, grains, seeds and more with every meal. It helps to keep them fresh and guess what you can buy this in bulk and it actually saves you some money and has the whole grains, proteins and vitamins your body needs without any added chemicals or preservatives. Sort of a no-brainer right? Each week we buy fresh produce and feed our body with pure light energy! I myself have always been a vegetable lover, I’ll eat them raw or cooked.
There is information everywhere on how to improve your diet and make healthier decisions, it has not only changed the way we see food, but our daily mood is better, our digestion, cardiovascular health, my asthma is even better and it has enlightened our soul as well. I am not here to tell anyone what to eat, that is your choice and does not effect what I am doing, I am here to share my journey and how eating a plant based diet has already changed my life for the better and its only been a few months. I cant even wait to see what it does for my body and mind a year from now.
Yes there is a lot more cooking involved, not as much going out to eat unless you find restaurants that cater to a vegan/vegetarian diet which are popping up a lot more these days as people are realizing how good it is for us. I find when I tell people that we have made this lifestyle choice they become puzzled with all sorts of thoughts like “where do you get your protein?” which is already a tired question. Do the research, find out for yourself and you will see that there is a plethora of alternatives to absolutely everything out there just loaded with live enzymes, magnesium, iron, protein, vitamins and more than you could imagine. Benefits from the natural world are incredible and its so rewarding to gain such beautiful knowledge.
I am excited to share my own personal journey here, through different meals, shop updates, other stories and findings along the way. Lets feed our mind, body and souls, after all they are all connected.
We must eat to live not live to eat.
