Sure, there are other reasons why I prefer that my kids don’t eat meat, reasons that have to do with the 27 billion animals that are slaughtered each year in the United States, the torturous conditions at factory farms and the environment depleting methane gas, hydrogen sulfide and ammonia that are produced by farmed animals.
I am currently living in residental hall as a supervisor (it’s saving me about 20,000), and the food is sub-par. The meat is DISGUSTING! I mean chicken pieces that aren’t really chicken, that has been over-salted and over preserved.
I got thinking to myself, after Dinneen@EatWithoutGuilt mentioned the breakfast experiment. Basically switching up your breakfasts each day for a week and see how your feel intitally and then two hours later.
As I wrote yesterday, I felt like I was in a haze with my food choices yesterday. I thought back to when I felt great after I ate. It revolved around either a juice or a fresh meal. Juices which are solely vegetable based.
I got thinking, why couldn’t I heal my body with fruits, vegetables, nuts? That’s what our bodies have evolved from eating. Some will aruge that meat was also part of this. However, what was only when it would have been caught. I am going to a new naturopath tomorrow who specialises in vegan diets. I am so excited!
Started my vegetable and fruit filled day with a fresh juice: 2 celery, 2 tomatoes, 1/3 cucumber, 1 carrot
I ate oranges, apples (hurt my tummy), pears today. With meals and between snacks. I also had about 3 TB of nuts as well.
For dinner I had a salad w/ 1/2 c. of quiona, 1 tsp of tahinni and evoo, w/ some sauteed veggies, chickpea and bean salad. I finished off with an orange and apple.
I then came home and had an INTENSE sugar craving and massive withdrawal headache. Part of my detoxing means that I do get headaches sometimes. However…I juiced again. 1/2 cucumber, 3 stalks of celery, 1 tomato, 1 small bunch of spinach.
What I LOVE about their products is that the ingredients are organic, it’s affordable and it smells good. Oh did I mention, they don’t test on animals and they also give back to planting veggies gardens in under-resourced communities.
What beauty products to do you have, that you LOVE?
