I’m a wife, a mother, an athlete and an eater of food. I care deeply about my family my health and how we live our life and until recently, I did what anyone–everyone does; I ate what I thought was ‘healthy.’ As I began to research and understand food more and more I began to realize that the standard Western diet–moreover–the standard World diet could possibly be flawed: what if the human body could survive, even better, thrive, without animal protein? It may sound crazy, but stay with me.
I’ve started a journey. One that includes a lot of science, years of study by very reputable professionals and academics and a movement that includes some very notable people. I don’t know all of it, nor do I attest to the fact that this is the only way, but the science is unbelievably compelling–and the food is AMAZING! I am a walking testament to the nutrition that a vegan diet can yield awesome physical results. I have more energy, I heal faster, get sick less. I can exercise without fatigue and I can eat as much as I want!
This blog is meant to chronicle that journey and possibly share some insight for those interested. If you don’t agree, that’s okay, I’d love to hear your point of view, if you do, feel free to share your story (or a recipe) with the rest of us!
