no, i’m vegan. i chose veganism for my health. but aside from diet, i use cruelty free products and don’t wear wool/silk/animal products because i chose the vegan lifestyle, i have been since january 1st, 2014 :) going on 10 months, best decision of my life. i am so much healthier and happier. idk how other people define themselves, but this is how i do it. i’m vegan and i follow all the things people do in a vegan lifestyle, what brought me to lifestyle is different than others who came to this for morals/ethics/animal rights but i’m still vegan.
you're plant based not vegan though right? because it's for health? not animal?
Hey, whowuddathunk that the cheapest foods are all plant-based? *big vegan grin*
signal boost the hell out of this article.
I did the math and realized that in 11 days of school and work. I have spent 138.86 on coffee and food. That is unacceptable! Being at school or work for 13 hours a day makes it hard to eat I don’t have a fridge or a place to keep food cold. I really have to focus and pre plan ways to eat from home. Or only have an allowance for certain amounts of money a week. I bet i’m going a crap ton of wait and i’m always exhausted. Any advice tumblr?
nature’s ultimate fast food; fruit. just grab whole fruits and put them in a hard-sided container (to prevent bruising) and it’ll be a perfect go-to cheap food. usually in cafeterias fruit is like a dollar a piece but at the grocery store is much cheaper.
rice and bean dishes doesn’t need to be refrigerated, and is super cheap
Why aren’t most prolife people vegan?

Carrots — Orange Skin Carrots are a delicious and healthy snack. But if you eat too many, you’ll start to look one. Well not quite — although it is possible that your skin will take on a yellow-orange hue. Most commonly it’s seen on your knees, nose, palms, and soles. The discoloration is due to the high beta-carotene content of carrots. It’s known as “carotenemia.” A similar effect can also occur with a diet especially high in tomatoes — due to their lycopene component — and is called “lycopenemia.” The good news? Eating just a couple of extra servings of…

so i worked on finishing reading this book today. i’d started this many months ago but life got in the way of living life and i’d set it down.
pros to this book:
promotes veganism/plant based diets from a science perspective, very raw and truthful. meaning, it doesn’t discuss animals as sentient beings because it focuses on the human physiology and nutritional science,
it really gets me to eat more greens, like it puts the importance of vegetables higher than i’ve seen on high carb diets from my internet explorations
discusses the many diseases people have (diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, etc) and how to CURE them
it written by a medical doctor who has experience and education and backs up every statement with evidence and/or logic
cons to this book:
it was written in 2006 and although that’s relatively recent, much science has progressed since then so i feel like it’s missing out on some things, but it is still highly relevant as it talks about Atkins and Bloody Type Diet etc.
it recommends 1,200 calories for women….that enough makes my blood boil
it allows animal consumption in small quantities because Dr. Fuhrman realizes food involves tradition and taste and personal preference…but like it also praises the health benefits of fish for omega 3’s…ew.
aside from my few complaints above, i can’t begin to say how awesome the positives of this book are! many more positives than i have listed above, it’s definitely a must read!!!
