Last week I started experimenting with a vegan diet. My inspiration is Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, his research on stopping and reversing heart disease, and related research. For at least 28 days, I am giving up meat, dairy, extracted oils and most sugar. I’m eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes almost exclusively. A lot of what I am eating is raw, in the form of huge salads, sliced fruit on my morning oatmeal and snack fruits throughout the day. I’m even giving up fruit juices and eating the whole fruits instead.
I’m doing this primarily for health reasons but I’m also concerned about the ethics of eating fellow earthlings and the sustainability of how most meat and dairy is produced. I’m not trying to push veganism on you. I’m experimenting. I’ve gotten some great results already and I hope you will get something out of this as well! Please check out the video above and let me know what you think.
