If you’ve been keeping up with my posts, you know that I called myself an “aspiring” vegan. This is because for years, I’ve been flip-flopping all over the place with vegetarianism, veganism, gluten-free…ism, raw foodism, dairy-freeism, egg-freeism, and meat-eating……ism. ( Told myself they all have to end in “ism” )
All the while I knew that, ultimately, I must be vegan. It is the only sustainable and morally livable lifestyle. Up until now, I had everything but the diet down.
I had reached the point where I just couldn’t take it anymore. The reason I failed so many times before, reverting back to meat, is because I wasn’t eating enough real food. I’m talking legumes, whole grains, and vegetables. Any junk food vegan will not last unless he/she makes changes. I finally discovered that any junk food diet is slowly killing anybody. Because still, I was unhealthy as a meat-eater.
