First of all, please do not hate on any lifestyle one is living, as long as it’s their right ideology and they aren’t starving themselves to death, it’s their own life.
Personally for me that also counts for animals as beings on this earth, I do not support the killing and eating of animals. I have my reasons, I live totally heathy (in a medical way) and here are the my story and reasons for living a vegan lifestyle.
All my recipes on this blog are vegetarian, feel free to click on the ‘food’ section on the menue and get inspired for that one. now, that I am living a vegan lifestyle, I feel better when eating than ever, so there will be only vegan recipes in the future on this blog!
I have been a vegetarian for nearly 2 years now (2 years in September) and I am feeling grand. For me it was a all or nothing situation, my father and stepmother have been vegetarian before, but I was too young to know exactly why and to stress enough about it, truth is I loved eating meat etc. , then my friend became vegetarian, too, and finally I opened my eyes, to the crucial meat industry. And so I became vegetarian, at first my friend recommended me to take it slow, eat meat once or twice a week and leave more and more, but after one week no meat whatsoever, I ate a baked chicken and felt so bad afterwards. It wasn’t guilt, it was illness, my stomach turned, and at that moment I did not touch meat any more. I have to say I maybe once or twice ate a meat thing you put on your pretzels, it is named “Teewurst”, but it wasn’t as great as I had it in my mind and so that was probably one and a half years ago.
I am (now) a vegan because I cannot let it happen, that animals get killed; in extremely harmful ways without any love and under full consciousness. They get treated like shit, from birth to death. The conditions are horrible, you aren’t doing anything right, when you buy meat or any product made by or of animals, you are only supporting slaughterhouses and those who are selling it. Killers, who like to kill and who use you. I won’t let that happen any more with me, I am a full vegan. If you do not believe me, please watch the movie “Earthlings”, I forced myself to watch every minute, and if after you’ve watched it, you still think it’s okay to buy this meat, buy your pets at breeders, buy leather jackets and use medicaments tested on millions of animals (if you don’t really need it or can avoid it), then, God, there’s is no hope for you.
I am thinking that it doesn’t make any difference if you buy ‘organic’ meat from happy pigs or whatever, the animals don’t want to be killed, they don’t want to live a fourth of a lifetime they could be living (milk cows), they want to be free, as free as you are, as free as anyone wants to be. We are all Earthlings. Since I am now vegan and get questions and comments like ‘I don’t want to limit myself.’ or ‘You won’t get enough Protein!’ , ‘What about the iron, calcium,…?’, my diet has changed, but I wouldn’t call it a diet, it is a lifestyle. My aim isn’t to find thousands of substitutes for the (already) gross Snickers etc. I am living a healthy lifestyle. Biased in fruits, beans, lupines, rice, spelt corn (pasta, bread,…) and much more, you can get all that from plant based food. Not to mention all the medicines the animals get to be ‘fit’ against diseases, gain weight and who do you actually think, they have so much minerals etc. ? Through those medicines, be realistic! I have always been very interested in several so called ‘healthy lifestyles’ in order to gain health, fitness, a lean body, confidence, awakens (sleepy…) and happiness. The Lifestyles I am currently reading and learning about are the ‘Rawtill4’/’HighCarbLowFat’, ‘StarchSolution’ and many more. I find it amazing, that there are people, happy, healthy people, only eating fruits and ‘raw’ food until 4 pm, but eat as much they want and have amazing bodies out of that. Or so they say.
The third ‘section’ for me is the environmental reasons, growing the animals on those big bid feed lots takes up so much land, where there could be planted several different (!) veggies, corn, fruits and much more. Not to mention the space where the food the animals have to eat (massive amounts!), that is wasted, not to start with the water they consume in comparison to normal any growing!
I am still educating in all these three sections, so be kind of it is ‘t enough evidence.
I hope you are interested in more political themes, as for me this is my blog and I’m going to blog whatever the shit I want. (Bare with me, these are hard times I am living in!)
Are you vegan? Or vegetarian? If not, why are you eating meat?
