Why I became vegan.

It seems like it was yesterday, my journey toward better health began in 1988. Having a variety of health problems, feeling tired and overweight, I was encouraged by a friend to eat healthier. Slowly eliminating junk food, pork, beef, chicken and some seafood, I processed with confidence that this was the beginning of a better life. And it was.

Knowledge is POWER, and that is what was given me, the power to say no to things that harm my body temple, things that we call food, but really is not nourishment. And the journey continued, becoming vegetarian a year later and then 4 year after, choosing veganism.

Being vegan is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. It is the essence of my being, my breath, my passion.

We live in a world were it is accepted to be sick, were disease is ramped and death comes too early. What if I tell you that sickness can be eliminated? Those afflictions like cancer, diabetes, and some heart diseases can be prevented and cured with a vegan diet. Yes, that is right. If we choose life we will receive life.

    Amen!! A Beautifully inspiring story to all who read it I’m sure. You are so “on point” dis-ease is a choice we DO NOT have to make. All of those illnesses & more can certainly be healed through proper nutrition. Our bodies have & will adapt as best they can, but they are literally screaming & crying out for better nutrition. Kudos to you! Keep up the awesome work girl !!
