Hi! I’m Allie. I’m a 20 year old North Carolinian that’s attempting to go vegan. These are my veggie chronicles…
I’ve always had a passion for food and health. I’m a huge believer in the power that a healthy, natural lifestyle and I hope become a kind, honest, eco-friendly, and healthy as I can. So why vegan, you ask?
For the animals: I believe that we can co-exist peacefully with animals without causing harm. I do not believe that it is necessary to consume animal products to be healthy, therefore I feel that slaughtering animals is unnecessary and cruel.
For the planet: We all know (I think… I hope!) that reducing meat intake reduces your carbon footprint. I believe it’s important to cherish and respect our planet, and that we should always do what we can to protect it :).
For me: Beside keeping me morally and ethically sane, I have felt better since going vegan! I’m more energetic, have seen a natural decrease in overall body fat, quicker recovery time between hardcore workout, clearing of skin (not quite cleat yet, but getting there!), and just overall feeling better!
I believe that one person can make a difference. Stick to your ideals, hold on to your principles, keep your feet on the ground, and your eyes ahead. Get informed, change your habits, change your life :).
