n two thousand and three I made the decision to dramatically change the world around me. I made a choice for health, compassion, and for a better foreseeable future for every one and everything.
t all began after reading Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation : the dark side of the all American meal." A transformation began in me. Then I discovered of my all time favorite book, "Healing with Whole Foods : Asian traditions and Modern Nutrition, third edition" by Paul Pitchford, and I knew. I wanted to be Vegan. The information is out there, and couldn't continue to ignore what my "gut" was telling me all along. I wanted to treat my body as a temple, and not as a garbage disposable. In exchange for meat and dairy I received an abundant source of positive energy, an awareness that compassion is the best possibility, and the proof that health is the greatest asset to wealth.
hysical wellness being my first motivation, stewardship is a close second. The statistics are outrageous. In the U.S. 6.3 million cow are slaughtered each year. I am proud to say that I do not contribute to the 50 lbs. of waste (urine and manure) each steer produces each day at feed lots while waiting to reach "market weight." I do not contribute the wasted 5,000 gallons of water needed to produce one pound of beef. Being vegan is a huge way I can stand up and advocate for our environment.
believe being Vegan keeps me focused and disciplined. I feel beautiful and sexy knowing that I nourish myself with healthy products free of karmic energy, relating to the disrespect the industries are currently showing to the animals, planet and fellow human beings. If the United States consumed 10% less meat we would have 60% more grains. I encourage everyone to make the choice to get educated and become responsible. Your choices have so much power. It is time to honor Earth.
