I’ve been vegetarian since ’93 with a brief run at being vegan in the middle there. The veganism did not stick simply because I was not committed enough and did not have the will power to combat external forces.
I’ve now regrouped and recommitted to leading a vegan life.
But I want more than to just be vegan.
I’m one of those people who love food and enjoy cooking and variety and satiety. I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life ( except during that vegan stint….which was really vegan+ ) and no matter how much I work out….my diet is always going to be the major factor for my weight. So my real goal is not just vegan…..it is super healthy vegan+.
Vegan+ means no white sugar, no white flour, and no added oil on top of the no dairy, no eggs, and no rotting carcasses. I’m not always 100% on the “+” part….but it is my goal. I also try to use natural remidies to cure any maladies instead of resorting to pharmaceuticals.
I’m vegan for both ethical ( both the animal and the human plight ) and health reasons.
I hope you enjoy sharing in my journey and find both useful and uplifting information here.
