Reason to Go Vegan

There are many reasons to go vegan, from health to environmental effects to animal welfare. I want to lay out these three reasons to go vegan. I think when you make the switch to vegan.
Having valid reasons will help you can stand behind a significant change. Besides, it will propel your decision to do so. That way, the decision will be sustainable.

Go Vegan to Become Healthy.

I am obsessed with health. Eating a whole food plant-based vegan diet is the best thing you can do for your body. WFPB Vegan fills you with food that is growing and nutrient-dense!
Have you ever heard the saying, “you are what you eat?”

It’s true. If you eat dead meat, then you begin to die inside from disease.
Meat is full of cholesterol that clings to arteries. It is full of fat that sticks to your less desirable areas.
Meat has minimal vitamins and minerals and no fiber content. These are just a few of the risks associated with meat. There are too many to count.

Eating plants feeds your body with live nutrients that promote healing and provide a growing amount of energy. Believe it or not, all plants contain protein.

So examples are potatoes, spinach, rice, beans, nuts, and seeds. Plants contain an abundance of vitamins and minerals that will not only help you heal. But also fuel your body to be in optimum health. Plants make you as close to a superhero as you can get. Meat is very calorie-dense, so we gain more. They will help you be more productive and clear-minded, heal fast from wounds, and have unlimited energy. What is better than that?

There are several hundreds of books, scientific journals, and movies out there that go into the science behind it.
A couple of my favorite books are the china study, how not to die, and the kind diet. My favorite movies are Game Changers, What the Health, and Food Choice. But there are so many others. Do not let me stop you from exploring the others.

Go Vegan to Save The Planet.

We only get one earth to thrive on. That is why it is so important to take care of it. We are killing the plant between the meat industry and our throw-away society. Going vegan is a significant step towards saving the planet. For one lb of meat, we use thousands of gallons of water, an anchor of land, and many more precious resources to produce. We cut down anchors of land for more animal farms. The original animals are left to relocate or die off. With the loss of trees, we lose fresh, clean oxygen. Countless ways are going vegan is a discernment to saving the planet.

Go Vegan for Animal Welfare.

Everyone loves animals. I find that is a fact. Going vegan will allow the meat industry to stop force-producing more animals to live in small cages for rapid growth. They will be able to see the sun and breathe fresh air. They will not have to sit in filth day in and day out. Or have to die young and scared. The babies will be able to grow up with families and not alone.

If we made a human or our pets live in these conditions, we would become arrested for endangerment. Why should we all others do this for us to have something to eat.

None of this seems right!

We all have such hearts we need to stop being blind to reality and start standing up for what is right. Start standing up for our health and others. Please stand up for the world our kids are going to inherit. Stand up for the animals. Be Vegan!

The way we shop is how we vote for the world to keep doing things the same or make changes. So choose wisely in your decisions. Buying meat is voting to kill animals, destroy our planet, and destroy the health of humans.

I hope these reasons help you along your way to exploring a whole food plant-based vegan diet. I hope becoming vegan seems more sustainable, reasonable to do, and rewarding.

Have you thought about going vegan? Here are three reasons why propel you to decide to do so today… Your health, environment, and animals.

My Personal Journey To Whole Food Plant-Based Vegan

Many people call the standard American diet the SAD diet. They abbreviate because of their effect on the body, animals, and our precious environment. Unfortunately, the SAD diet creates havoc no matter where it goes for many reasons. That is why many people seek out a whole foods vegan diet instead.

Many books and documentaries explain the SAD diet’s disastrous effect on the body. Therefore, if you want more details, I will look at the list of books and movies I have listed in the following article to become more informed.

Today I will share with you my reason for going vegan.

When I was sixteen, I was a prima ballerina. I had my whole career and life of me. At that time, I was dancing 8 hours a day while going to school. It was my freshman year of high school. I was already struggling mentally because my father had passed that summer.

One day when I woke up, I could not move even an inch. I had pins and needles in every inch of my body. At that point, I was already diagnosed with acid reflux, asthma, and arthritis. My blood pressure was 80/60. I was in and out of the doctor for years. At that point, I was in and out of the doctor for years with no answers.

Since I was little, I have hated eating meat and all dairy products. I only did it because my house had a rule, “Eat what was on your plate or starve.” With dance, I need to keep my energy up. I ate the food that was there.

After I had to stop dancing from being sick, I went stir-crazy from staying at home, so I got my first job. That was when I realized I could finally start eating what I wanted since I could pay for it myself.

So I started the transition to a vegetarian diet. 

I was soon able to walk and stand. Then I found and became informed about being vegan. It made perfect sense to me. If I didn’t kill or hurt the animal for food, then why would I use it for my lifestyle in any form. So I went completely vegan in all aspects of my life.

Going vegetarian was a slow process for me, but it was worth it. Today I am healthier than I have been in a long time. I started dancing again. I love home cooking and exploring new foods. So I find this lifestyle very rewarding.

I have slowed down on highly processed foods and stuck to whole foods that come straight from the earth. I aim to fill my body with growing foods, not dead foods. I believe in the statement that you are what you eat. So it is important to fill yourself with life and not things that have been murdered. My diet is now filled with whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Eating this way enables my body to thrive and heal.

Besides being healthier, I know I am having a more positive impact on the earth, saving animals, and spreading joy through my fellow community.

There are many reasons to go vegan for health, environmental, and animal welfare. I hope my story brings some of you hopefulness since I know I am not the only one struggling out there.
