Fawnia, what is your diet like?
Previously, since 1997 I lived the bodybuilding lifestyle, eating as natural as possible with a mix of Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fats. However my lifestyle has drastically changed. Since January 2017, I switched to being Vegan, which was a slow transition, starting in the fall of 2016. I have removed all animal proteins from my diet, and have replaced with these friendlier proteins: tempeh (soy product), nuts, tahini, almond milk, beans, broccoli, hemp, spirulina, and spinach. For my carbohydrates, I eat oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice, spouted grain bread. And I have always been a fan of good fats, essential fatty acids from almonds, avocados, flax oil, Udo's Choice Oil, grape seed oil, extra virgin olive oil.
My personal reasons for going Vegan are:
I love our planet. Nearly 20 percent of man-made pollution comes from the meat industry, putting factory farming ahead of transportation in contributing to the greenhouse effect.
I love all animals. According to VeganOutreach.org, one person can spare at least 50 animals every year by eliminating animals from their diet. In 2011, USA Today reported that nearly 50 percent of Americans are trying to cut down on meat, while approximately one-fifth of students are vegetarian, vegan, or trying to eat less meat.
Being Vegan saves you 40% of food. It can save you money while you still eat amazing vegan comfort food and more.
