Being vegan is liberating...
It feels so good to be eating foods that have no link to animal cruelty & the side effects of our diet have brought us good health, strength & happiness - not to mention the loss of unwanted weight!
I have lost over 2 1/2 stone (38 lbs/17kgs/19 bags of sugar) since January...
Sime's lost 2 stone too!
We eat huge amounts of food, but it's all plant based & mega healthy.
We kicked our chocolate habit & no longer crave crappy foods.
We can eat vegan chocolate now & again & enjoy it - without wanting to eat the whole bar!
We don't eat any oil at home (though difficult when eating out) - we do eat a tablespoon of ground linseeds in our porridge, along with a spoonful of ground hemp seeds.
Our meals are pretty simple, but delicious. We eat a variety of grains every day, at least 10 vegetables & fruits & 3 or 4 different pulses/legumes.
Quitting dairy, eggs & oil has given our bodies a wonderful treat - no more heartburn or indigestion, no food cravings... Just lots of energy, stamina & for me - recovery from an auto-immune system disorder!
We saw this video today & like this guy...
Hesh Goldstein talks a lot of sense!
Unfortunately, most of the UK hasn't woken up yet...
But Ruth & Marcus (who stayed with us last month) are vegan environmentalists & they work hard to educate folks about the benefits of a vegan diet. We believe their tireless work will make a difference & people will begin to make changes to the way they live.
They present a really interesting & informative radio show. We posted a link to their first radio show here: First Official Guests
Please take time to listen to these:
You may even recognise a couple of people on one of the shows... Hahaha!!!
Have a good week!
Kay & Sime
