Don’t be Judgey – Vegan ways

Uh yeah.  I eat a plant based diet 95% of the time.  On occasion I eat fish.  On a special occasion, once or twice a year, I will eat a steak.  One thing I never really liked is chicken.  I’m lactose intolerant.  I love cheese.  That had too stop.  Eggs.  It wasn’t too hard to give up.  I used to eat eggs every day.

Here is what surrounds me. My mom and her suffering from diabetes, the stroke, the kidney complications. My uncle, diabetic, kidney failure, on dialysis. My brother and his wife, diabetic.  My aunt died from diabetes.  My grandpa died from lung problems and didn’t smoke.  My sisters with severe psoriasis, debilitating rheumatoid arthritis.  And me who was the healthiest, asthmatic, with the most serious flare up just this year.

I’ve eaten meat all my life and not once was I judged.  It’s interesting that once you stop and you decide to become sort of vegan, you may be judged for not being 100% vegan.  The fact of the matter is… in the end, it does not matter what anybody says.  People are angry about healthy eating.  I don’t get upset when people make comments.  I just keep doing what I’m doing,  my way.   

Once you’ve suffered from serious illness, you’d do anything to not experience that again.  If you don’t have motivation to eat healthy, why would you?

I’m going to keep going.  If I can control my health in some way, I will.

Here’s some things to think about:

  1. Not everyone can be vegan
  2. Don’t judge, but inspire
  3. Some people can eat whatever they want and still live past 100
  4. Review your family history
  5. It’s a journey
  6. What’s your motivation
  7. Inform yourself
  8. Use supplementation
  9. Do you have food intolerance?
  10. Find people who support you
  11. Are you a victim of autoimmune disease?
  12. It’s your choice

That’s it.  It’s your life. Your choice.

Thanks,

L.
