I Am Worth It Too.

16 Mar

The question of the year: Am I Worth It?

Raw vegan 7 years, cooked vegan 1 year, vegetarian 6 years. I am Buddhist. I didn’t want to kill any animals in order to live but my body was struggling. I aged quickly towards the end of my vegan years.

I introduced meats back into my diet in May 2017 and have felt better. My skin is not dry anymore, my eczema is almost none existent, my wrinkles have subsided, I sleep better, my gut is healthier, the atmosphere at home is lighter (i.e. I’m less uptight and more easy going and relaxed), I have gained a lot of muscles, my son doesn’t need his asthma medication anymore… I could go on. I wonder how I can eat animals and still be Buddhist. All I can come up with is this: I say thank you to the animal for dying in order to feed me and keep me healthy. I keep in mind that the Dalai Lama also eats meat. It is ok. I remind myself that I am worth it too.

Edited on 14th June 2018. I wrote the paragraph above as I embarked on my Carnivore journey. I have largely eaten only from the animal kingdom since the 1st of March 2018. What started as a one month experiment has now continued into a new way of eating for me. I love how it makes me feel. I have also found my niche in creating Animal-Based Skin Care and Soaps. Another amazing discovery: we slashed our Vegan food budget by HALF.
