Over the course of my lifetime, I've tried many different ways of eating. Sometimes things come full circle and you try them, like them, leave them and then, return. So here I am again, adhering to to a vegan way of eating, most of the time.
Being able to listen to your body and it's needs is more important than following a diet full of restrictions and boundaries which I believe and advocate for with all of my clients, friends and family. So, for the most part I'm following a vegan diet about 90% of the time and that other 10% is there for those days when I feel my body wanting something heartier, and more calorie dense.
If you haven't yet watched the incredible documentary Forks Over Knives, I encourage you to do so. Even if you don't decide to choose veggies over meat after watching the film, it's hard not to be inspired by the power we each have as individuals to reverse disease, get off our meds and live a healthier life just by choosing different foods to consume.
Challenge yourself to seek out plant based options this week. You don't have to quit cold turkey (no pun intended) but if you slowly and more frequently choose high fiber, low cholesterol foods the way you look and feel will change as well.
As always, if you have more questions on taking better care of yourself connect with me through my contact page.
