In light of the new awakening, more people are transitioning to healthier diets or at least attempting to; and I must say I am all about that life.
One thing I don’t love about the healthy-eating movement is tags; vegan, pescatarian etc. unless its just to keep you accountable to yourself. Personally, I have dabbled between being a Pescatarian, Vegetarian, Vegan and Raw vegan foodist. In my vegetarian moments, I would miss fish or feel like I’m missing iron from fish and decide to eat fish for a few months. In my vegan moments, I rarely miss dairy but occasionally I would indulge in ‘Kerry Gold butter’ or my favorite Trader Joes Oatmeal raisin dunkers. Some other times, I feel weary of my “mercury-filled ocean thoughts” and I take a long break from eating sea food.
At this time in my life, I make a mental note to stay away from artificial sugars, eat organic pesticide free farm produce as often as possible, and load up on greens and fruits. I still don’t eat meat and the condition of the poisoned ocean will probably make me limit eating seafood to about twice a month. I take B12 supplements once a month, keep meals as balanced as possible, get Vitamin D from the sun at least 10 mins daily, drink a lot of water and I stay studying about food and vitamins they contain.
Things to keep in mind:
- There will always be someone around you saying ” Oh I thought you were vegan, vegetarian etc…. but you are eating this ” Be prepared for that and ready to brush it off.
- If you are considering a converting to any of these ways of life, be sure to pay attention to your body and how your system reacts to the absence of certain foods. Don’t feel so pressured to where you over-do the healthy lifestyle’ thing and get sick. The body system unique to each individual.
- Try not to be too hard on yourself. Gradually adjust into your new diet and remember that discipline & self control are important.
- Research alkaline foods and eat more of it. An Alkaline body system can breed no diseases.
