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.
