Most of us grow up believing we can't make a difference or change in the world but it's not true
And honestly it can be as simple as changing your diet!
Not only do you actively make a difference in the world but you change yourself too
you can even turn back the clock, you may look and feel younger
I'm 31 and people still mistake me for being 24!!!
You will even feel happier and more focused, more in control of your life and your dreams
All this from going Vegan, really?
Yes and it's so simple!
I know some of you are thinking, like I once did, that it's not a small change, in fact it can be quite a daunting prospect at first.
Like what will I eat, how will I live without meat? I'm just a meat eater and I just love meat, it's natural to eat meat. These are just a few of the things I used to say and many other people do too, it becomes a mantra that limits you!
But I can’t emphasize enough once you go vegan it doesn’t feel like a big deal after all
It's not rocket science or algebra..... just stop buying animal products, it's that simple
It requires a change of perspective, which is a healthy exercise for the human mind!
This is what happened to me, one day I woke up:
I remembered back to a time that when my parents went to a restaurant and told me we were eating bambi (venison) I cried!
How did I become the adult that convinced herself eating meat was healthy and normal? Well it was other peoples opinions that brought me to that place.
I felt like I had been brainwashed by school, society and those crazy paleo diet people!
When I started attending kundalini yoga classes, my teacher told me that it's really important to eat an animal free diet when doing this type of yoga she convinced me through her personal story of how she got ovarian cancer and healed herself by going vegan and doing yoga.
It became a no brainer after that!
That day I knew what the right thing to do was, I had to do it
MIND OVER MATTER
It was that simple and changed my life forever
Really I don't miss animal products and there's no way i'm not going back
I had to re-wire my taste buds and mental receptors that meat was off the menu
How did I do this?
Go on a vegan retreat or find vegan friendly destinations to go on holiday, for me going to India and staying in meat free states helped a lot
Doing it in stages, For me first meat went, then cheese, the milk, then fish, then eggs, then honey
Animal products are expensive, remind yourself you can save $$$ by going vegan
