“Vegan, because peace begins with how we treat the most vulnerable among us.” 💕
This is going to make me sound like an asshole, but sparing cruelty to animals was not my number one motivation to go vegan - it was health. My husband has family history of cancer and I have family history of liver disease and heart disease. But, oddly enough, since eliminating animal products one of the most satisfying and surprising benefits I’ve experienced is a sense of peace which comes from knowing I’m no longer intentionally killing them. I’m not saying I’ve got the ethical vegan thing figured out - and don’t know if that’s on my agenda but it feels really peaceful to eat this way.
I know some of you are following along on this #newvegan journey with me but haven’t eliminated animal products so part of my goal is just to share my experience with you kind of as an experiment - like, “what happens in the body and mind quitting animal products for 21 days?” And then, 30 days. And looking forward to more days, and not counting them because it just feels like the right thing to do. I feel stronger and cleaner in my body, sharper in my mind, and more peace in my spirit. And I didn’t come here to preach, you guys, in fact I thought that was one of the most annoying things about vegans so I do apologize if it annoys you, but man, it feels good, and you just want to share and let people know. And I told you I’d tell you how it was going. So, that’s how it’s going. If you want to follow along, food stuff over at @melasvegankitchen ✌🏼✨🌈 🐄 🥑🐖 🌱🐓 🥒🐕 🍍🐈 🌎 ❤️ __
