‘Veganism’. What a powerful word. To be perfectly honest, the idea of a plant based diet frazzled me for the longest time. I could never differentiate what facts about veganism were true, false, passion driven, extremist, etc. And I think I always wanted to know if a vegan diet was truly healthier than an animal based diet. It has taken me almost 8 years to finally come to a conclusion or opinion of my own on this matter. I thought I would share my vegan/not vegan journey with you.
Before you comment, I ask you read this whole post before judging. I know this is a controversial topic and the following is how I truly feel after years of trying to come to a conclusion on this matter.
As someone who cares deeply about their health–both mentally and physically–I always take information on ‘diets’ with a grain of salt. I do this because I refuse to be a brainwashed victim of capitalistic driven propaganda. After witnessing any documentary, podcast, article or other source of media, I always follow up with research to provide an educated opinion.
