Hey there! If you have been reading my blogs at all you’ll catch on that I love living and living healthy:) This means, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Recently I had the opportunity to serve as camp nurse at Lake Aurora Christian Camp (as I have for the past 6 years) and was talking to the other nurse who had been faithfully following a vegan diet for a short while after viewing a documentary called, ‘What the Health.’ This video can be found on YouTube and Netflix by the way. It was quite eye opening in the fact that (at the risk of spilling the beans before you watch it) meat is not only bad for your cholesterol, and causes a multitude of diseases we have at an epidemic proportion in the Unites States, but all the companies used as a resource to improve these diseases are actually being endorsed by ‘big meat and dairy’ companies themselves. And the government is of course all up in the mess! Long story short I’m now a practicing vegan and am loving it. Now I just have to get used to cooking and prepping my foods to help ease the transition. Since completely switching over my gastric reflux symptoms have almost completely disappeared and my abdominal bloating has greatly diminished as well! Of course one major symptom of meat and dairy processing is inflammation (which is why we have so much colon cancer and other cancers in this country, do research it’s there). Any Vegans that have helpful hints please comment I need all the help I can get! I’ll post great recipe pics in the weeks coming up:) God bless and stay healthy!
PS Other great resources are; ‘Forks over Knives,’ documentary and the book called, ‘The China Study.’ By all means comment after watching any of these videos I would love to hear your thoughts!
