Vegan Schmeegan

Early on in my “no holds barred” diet, I never really looked at a vegan as some sort of fanatic, even though I felt “it wasn’t for me”, I respected their choice, even though I may have thought “vegan schmeegan”.

While contemplating the vegan diet later on, I tossed around a few variables of the diet, a “mostly vegan” approach really.

I slowly trimmed away animal products, basically eating very small portions, or seldomly eating any. I eventually narrowed it down to just allowing some fish, and eggs. Not bad, and a huge difference from consuming tons of cheese, milk products, and white meats like chicken and turkey.

But to be truthful, I first switched because of health benefits, because I was 50 lbs overweight, and had higher than normal blood pressure and cholesterol.

Later on, I took on the ethical aspect after doing some more research, and then, the environmental part.

I’ll talk more about my own personal change in a later post.

What’s your story? If the comments are still enabled, let me know.

Thanks!

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme
    you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours–
    but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!

    Hi Justin,
    We are using “Gema lite” it’s the free version, and so far, it’s been working pretty good.
    Sorry for the late reply. Hope all is well with you!
