Changing from a Traditional American diet to a Plant-based diet.

I started my journey to a Plant-based diet on November 8th, 2019, my 50th birthday, in an effort to rid my body of pollutants, that might prohibit my recovery, and to do my part for the Environment by negating my support for the Meat and Dairy industries. The knowledge I have gained from educating myself, both research and life experience, have set a clear path of understanding for me. The evidence is too obvious to ignore and I am tired of lies and victimization of an entire country, or world, for that matter.

I am no hypocrite, I have raised three of my children on your standard American diet: meat, potatos, fast food, candy, milk, junk food and everything else that goes along with the “baseball & BBQ’s” American culture. Honestly, I’m going to miss my dad’s rib’s. Or, like drinking, is it just because it’s what I’ve known for my whole life? The cravings seem to be present, but when put in my face, my conscious kicks in, and I remember why I am doing what I am doing. I have never had the will-power I exhibit today and still struggling to understand why I was unable to make these changes earlier. At the same time, my body seems to be riding a roller-coaster, but is stable.

What I have found in my first 2 weeks, basically, is a lack of options when out on the town and the craving for greenery is lacking. Unlike a steak, or Hodad’s burger, I can’t think of a green I want to DEVOUR! The Plant-based food needs to be altered and incorporated to keep it interesting. That’s fine, when you have the time, most people are pretty busy, but if you make the effort the dividends are huge.

The object for me is to help and inform as many people as I can about the Power of Plants and creating a Plant-based Planet. Isn’t the time for over-indulgence and gluttony passed? Is anyone else, besides myself, tired of being a victim and told what’s good for us (for the industries more likely)? I encourage you to join me and spread the information, that is readily out there, to those who want to make a difference. Subscribe to my YouTube page (Link below) to join me in my journey to educate as many as are willing to listen. If I can gain enough support I will do the legwork and event take event suggestions that I can help organize through my non-profit on Google: Green Living Life.

I thank you for your time and encouragement and welcome your criticisms. There is no bad intent here, only a loyal American who has served and sacrificed, only to watch the one’s we trusted take advantage for their owns interests.

A New Beginning to an Old Story

So here I sit, on the verge of fifty, re-evaluating and re-thinking everything I have known to be normal. Your average, working class, American Joe who is educating himself on the multitude of transitions our Country is currently putting itself through. We are being bombarded on all sides by fears of, well, just about everything. Yes, there is plenty to worry about but the threat comes of our own doing, our own conjuration of what we need! In my youth, American culture and pride is what we knew. Everyone in the schools and government was in agreement, in appearance, with a common enemy, Communism.

We believed it when they told us to drink milk, and cottage cheese and yogurt are healthy or bacon is good and so is beef. Eat eggs for protein and lots of delicious, savory chicken, it’s the healthier meat. Now, I’m not a hypocrite, I was raised on Baseball, football and BBQ’s. I gave my kids vaccinations, candy, snacks, some veggies, fast food, video games and plenty of American pride, same as I received. My three older children have all turned out to be wonderful young adults and my oldest son died in 2016 while still in uniform serving our Country. The reason I added this is so you truly understand my intent and my need to educate, not only my remaining three kids, but you as a person, because it’s your right to lead a great and long life, if you choose.

This change that I am making is as extreme a change as I could make and it has been easy to do since researching some of the information on health, diseases and the people SAYING they are there to help. The built in cycle of sickening ourselves continuously and paying for medication that keeps us sick for a lifetime! And they have us all convinced that anyone who finds proof otherwise is a fraud! The environmentalists and activists are kooks and have no proof! Well, they do have proof, and it’s overwhelming. The first thing I realized when my research started was that Humans are vegan. We were never meant to eat meat in the first place.

Have you ever noticed that the biggest and strongest mammals on the planet are herbivores? This, for me, put’s to rest the meat diet that is suggested in sports to build body mass. More importantly, there is a direct link to heart disease related to meat, and some of the Groups that say they are searching for the cure, are actually sponsored by a host of companies in the slaughtering business. The meat is diseased and filled with injected chemicals before it every arrives on your plate. Some of the things I found while researching made my stomach turn, including, the knowledge and support of the US Government. This system was so incredibly streamlined, that today, the groups “fighting for the cure” are actually just “making a huge profit”. The money goes to treating the patients, not eliminating Cancer all together. The fact that they allow a yogurt company to sponsor them, when the chances for breast cancer increase by 48% when you consume the product, is proof to the boldness of those in charge.

The last thing I ever wanted to say is “I’m vegan” or “vegetarian”! In my time as a youth, those people got beat up. With the current research tools available now though, I like being educated much better. I have worried about my kids futures, cancer, nuclear war, Communism, Aids, Vaccinations, plastics, our planet, the ocean, war and when “the big one” is going to hit! Never in my wildest dreams did I believe a solution could be so simple, easy and uncomplicated, and at the same time, impossible! There is black tape being put over the mouth of the information, hidden in a crowd of lobbyists, Corporations, manufacturers and Government Representatives that we all know stand to lose a huge amount of wealth if the truth is known.

I am tired of being their victim and I want to inform as many as I can, that there is a way to stop, turn-around or change the outcome and life of those that are smart enough to listen, to not just to me, research it yourself, it’s blatantly obvious. The biggest causes of the medical conditions most associated with being “American” can be cured, eliminated or reversed by what this Planet has provided us. Big money and Government has decided that keeping us ignorant and sick is better. So, an epiphany, has happened for me. Through exposure to the facts and living proof through my youngest daughter. Join me at YouTube.com@PaddytheBlogger to make the change and choose to live, not only longer, but with the less fear and the knowledge that everyone can make a difference.

I will begin a log of my dietary changes and prove the power of plants. I will also be speaking more about my starting health condition and see if this change to a Plant-based diet is as great as I have come to believe it to be, or if things remain the same. Join me on my journey and join in if it suits you, no pressure, it’s your life, but what I have come to realize is, we are handing this world to our kids, and as I treat my own, I refuse to send any that I can reach into the future ill-equipped and ignorant of something they need to fully participate in: Plant-based, vegan, anti-animal-cruelty, pollution, Ozone activist, tree-hugger………..whatever or whoever you are, your argument is with farmers: Cattle, pigs, chickens and fish. The pollutants they cause and disease they spread were never for us to ingest in the first place. But ask an American to give up Chicken or steak? It’s sure to be an unreasonable response. Join me and hopefully we can make a difference, for real.

I HATE

I hate that I have to write this

I hate that few care

I hate what we are doing to our Planet

I hate that there is so much hate in the world

I hate that we can’t co-exist with each other

I hate that everyone seems to think they are owed something

I hate that people force their ideas on others

I hate that money is more important than life

I hate that there’s so much wealth in the world yet people are still starving

I hate that governments think they have the right to choose what’s best for us

I hate that my Country has become a bully instead of a blessing

I hate that religion creates so much hate

I hate that I’m not sure what future I might be giving my children

I hate that individuals think they can’t make a difference or help when everyone can

I hate that Lines divide our world

I hate that Love isn’t the most important thing to share with each other

I hate that it is looking really bad if humanity can’t come together

I hate today’s urgency to shoot each other

I hate that so many of our countries young men have lost their lives, for greed

I hate that there seems to be no end to all this until something devastating

I hate that I care enough for these things to affect me emotionally

I hate that the people who truly try to help are destroyed

I hate that the only thing I can do to help is write this

SOP OF BLOGGING

How many times do we hear, “I have a blog….what now?”, Or, “I want to share my ideas / Brand with the world but have no idea how to get it out there”. Or another of my favorites is, “I keep getting redirected into rabbit-holes and may have purchased something without knowing it”. That last one’s my favorite. I myself experienced this when I was just starting out. These troublesome issues I mentioned, and there are so many more, can be easily resolved with the right knowledge. Well, I have that knowledge and am here to spare you the trauma of getting a quality Web-page / Blog up and running and placed in the right Niche for your Brand.

That being said, I am here to help whether you donate or not, so I want to share a few starting points that are often missed or forgotten at the beginning of the Blog building process. These points that I will share with you mostly deal with securing your information and a domain on a good platform for your audience / market / Brand.

  1. Find a Domain – As we all know, the internet is “booming”. Everything Tech is popular and many of us are learning how to work for ourselves instead of “The Man”. It’s a whole new world and although there are plenty of ipv4 & ipv6 addresses available, the name you want to represent your Brand may not be, for long. (.com) is the most saute after domain, but it is relatively hard to secure specific names at this point. (.org) is great for an organization but small businesses tend to get buried in the SEO phase, pushed down below the many organizations, with major backing. So, the first step is to create a great name that is as SHORT AS POSSIBLE and as close to your brand name as you can get it.
  2. Web Host – This needs to be considered in conjunction with your Domain purchase. There will be a little research involved to find the best pricing, but generally, you should find a domain with a Host Platform that already has good traffic. There are quite a few out there with some very reasonable prices, you just have to look a little. One that I suggest is “1&1 IONOS”, this is a great Domain host, I purchased the Domain for $1 and it gave me a free WordPress, which is a great Blog Forum with plenty of traffic. I ended up being offered a year for $3 a month ($36 for the year), a great price. These are only a couple of options in a Web full of options so I would look around a bit first. You might want to look at the Website platform before hand as well, to make sure it is in line with your Brand, whatever form it may come in.
  3. Page Appeal – Use your creativity to create eye catching and magnetic appeal. This is a combination of enticing content and page appeal or structure. Having a fluid page is essential to keeping your audience interacting with your work / Brand. Glitches, animation overload or clutter (too many points of focus in a small area) can kill the audience experience quickly. Make sure your Host is solid, secure and speedy or it may cost you. Check your spelling. There’s nothing more ridiculous than someone advertising as a content writer and do something like “beleive”. This just looks like a failure to pay attention to details. Take the time to go over what you write before publishing. Often times, I have new ideas that relate to what I wrote and I end up with even more quality content, which will fuel your SEO, the most important concept.
  4. Links – Add your various links to your Web-page / Blog so the audience have the option to venture further into your creations, if they like. You can also add embedded code so that things like your Facebook feed will also show up on your Page.
  5. Subscribe / Like / Share / Join – There is no bigger support that you can give a writer / Brand / Blog than adding yourself to their email list, sharing their content or items that you enjoy, liking or joining their page and commenting on posts they share. Just like I am trying to gain exposure for my Content Writing, they are trying to gain exposure for their Brand. (whatever that may be) To not give the same respect to those with the same goal as you could end up very fruitless.
  6. Updates – Your a writer, Write! You have to post frequently if you are trying to grow your Brand and it needs to be quality content of no one’s coming back. If your writing for fun, that’s fine, but even the lonely writer wants a “like” or “share” occasionally. Some sort of recognition that they aren’t the only one feeling that way, maybe. If your having trouble with content, then I guarantee you have issues with your SEO. That’s why there are people like me who specialize in relieving some of the stress of trying to bring attention to your creation. Ask me about my services and I will be happy to assist you however I can.

Well my friends, thank you for joining me. Remember, writing is a passion, do it because you love to. The moment it stops being a pleasure, maybe set it down for a bit, never forever. Too much knowledge has been discovered centuries after being written, that may have made a difference in the progression of man, don’t leave unsaid what might need to be said again later. Just keep writing. Happy Blogging Everyone!

Way of Things

I live on pleasant visions of calms sea and light breeze

Times before traumas and emotions like these

Drifting lightly across the top of the tides

As if taking the absurdness of this in stride

Rising high above the pillows adrift

each breathe drawn in a precious gift

gliding back to somewhat solid ground

My smile slightly tips towards frown

How is it possible to feel so high

as I stand on the ground and stare at the sky

The dream I drift into is refreshing and bright

then the grayness returns and delivers my plight

Stand on the ground but don’t stand in one place

the spot where your standing can never be replaced

Keep moving and living and loving those close

Keep smiling and striving and live how you’ve chose

That dream helps remind those still standing still

the time that wasn’t given is ours to fulfill

One never knows what hurdles life brings

I’m coming to understand that sometimes, it’s just the way of things

DAP 10/8/19 Written with Love for my son “Bud”

The Process

I wish it were easy to be happy in this place,

every corner I turn awaits another slap in the face,

Karma created has been good as of late,

Positive changes made lately are still up for debate,

A little help for a man who has suffered more than most,

an unselfish man who remains a good host,

I wish I were selfish that’s the easy way out,

but my integrity screams and leaves me no doubt,

Internal strength is present but still seems far,

it’s not going to be easy to pull up back to the bar.

Citizen Earth

Is it really that hard to be a citizen of the Earth

Just a Being on the planet at the time of birth

No color or creed to decide who ascends

A place where happiness is the current trend

There would be no lines to separate the states

No man in a house to decide another beings fate

Teach what you have learned to those called yours

integrate everything and open all doors

What right is anyone’s to claim what’s been given

Freedom and prosperity are individual decisions

Let each person choose what happiness is to them

My peace and your peace might be a different Zen

The brief time we are gifted at the beginning of the trip

Might look alot different than our ending spot to sit

All people different yet amazingly them same

One’s choices for happiness should never bring shame

Respect to each and opinion mute

One planet, one people no dispute

Freedom to roam is our right as a citizen of the Earth

It should never depend on what your worth
