Not all vegetarians are healthy

I, myself, eat more vegetables than meat nowadays. But I don’t believe I can eliminate from eating meat entirely even if I wanted to. Most vegetarians and people who suffer from eczema, needs vitamin B12 which can only be found from natural animal sources. I have occasional flare ups from eczema, thus, can never do without vitamin B12 and besides, I don’t believe in taking supplement pills. My point here is, being vegetarian is a healthy choice. However, just like everything else, you have to take in a good variety of foods to be healthy and this rule applies to vegetarians as well.

I’ve known a couple of vegetarians before I was food conscious and they (not every vegetarians) were always weak, tired and stressed. They weren’t exactly healthy at all, or so it seemed like it. It’s only now as I start being more aware of what I eat, that I realized those friends of mine, who are vegetarians, consume as much (maybe even more!) junk and processed foods as those who weren’t vegetarians. Yes, I understand some vegetarians choose not to eat meat because of the morals and ethics of slaughter houses. But really, I think it’s a very bad thing to do to yourself when you limit yourself to all foods that do not contain animal products, but eat everything else.

I do promote people to eat more vegetables and fruits than meat, but the message I’m sending is to be healthy, love your body, and learn to treat your body better. So whatever your diet may be, as long as you are getting the nutrients you need, that’s all there is to it. EAT YOUR VEGGIES AND FRUITS!! 😀

How getting enough greens can save your life

After watching this video, both me and my partner were so inspired. This video is yet another confirmation of us being on the right path of eating right.

In this video, Dr. Terry Wahls talks about her unfortunate event of developing Multiple Sclerosis. Despite all the medical treatments and latest medications, her condition worsened. Being sick of having her condition spiraling downwards, she took charge of her situation by reading and researching.

Upon all that reading, she thoroughly understood what caused MS and what she can do about it. Just 5 months after going on a 80% vegetable diet, she has cured herself of her condition without the help of medication.

Watch this video as she shares with you her very inspiring story of how modern day illnesses can be very much avoided based on our diet and explains how we can do the same.
