A religious post followed by a vegan post? The 2 most sacred and forceful belief types ever!
Most vegans become idiots, sorry become vegan because of animal rights concerns which is great! We should be doing so much more to allow cows to be completely grass fed, free roaming, to allow pigs and chicken to be the free roaming and healthy.
The better the animals are treated the better their meat quality, the better they taste and the healthy they are.
The problem with is is people are popping people out left right and centre and people are wasting soooo much food!
It’s estimated up to 1/3 of all food produced is wasted. 1/3!! That means out of your monthly food shop you will bin over a weeks worth of food. That’s an insane amount of food!
This has to be controlled if we can control this then we look at improving the quality of the less food we need to produce at such a rapid pace.
The other thing I love about veganism is the amount of fruit and veg (although you can’t actually eat some fruit and veg because it’s lined with bees wax to make it look shiny) irony 101 right there!
Everyone should have a plant based diet - EVERYONE! Plant based doesn’t mean plant only it means the base of your diet is plants(fruit and veg) and you build up from there, you add nuts, meat, dairy etc.
Buy frozen as it might actually be better quality than fresh, it’s cheaper it’s easier, it’s less wasteful. You have no excuse!
Even when I go to a steak house I’ll get a side of mixed veg, if it’s a buffet I’ll get the first plate loaded with veg and then go back for my meat and extras.
And now regarding the health aspect of veganism, I don’t agree with it at all, why most people feel so much more healthier being vegan is because they have gone from eating 1 small portion of veg a week to eating 40-50,
It’s the same feeling as when you have a blocked nose and can’t breathe, you have a sore throat so every breathe you do take hurts, it’s going from that level of extreme discomfort breathing to then clearing it all in a day or 2 and how much more alive and alert do you feel? It’s the same principle, restrict something and you feel terrible.
From my point of view a diet were you HAVE to supplement something is a less or even unhealthy diet (vitamin D is excluded from this as that more where you live, in England it’s essential!)
Vegans have to supplement B vitamins, iron maybe even more depending on your variety of food and amount of it you eat.
Why go to the extreme when you can have a mixture of everything and be happy and healthy and not miss out on restaurant trips with friends, trust me you’ll lose friends being vegan!
