I am feeling both happy and very sad today. Following Ayurvedic advice, I am incorporating honey and bee pollen into my diet. I have visited the small apiary only 2 streets away from me. There are 5 hives and the bees forage for a good part in the large, totally organic garden in which they are housed. The honey is raw and only some of it is taken for human consumption - the rest is left for the bees. I am sad because I thought I would be fully vegan for ever, but using honey means I am not. I am happy because I know the source of the honey and the bee keepers are fantastically eco friendly and passionate about their hives.
At this stage of the game, I will do whatever I can to try to improve my health and quality of life. No other animal products will enter my diet, nor animal products be used for clothing or furnishings.
I am still wfpb for the animals and the earth 💚🌍
