I used to think that animals lived a happy life and somehow ended up on my plate. I even called myself an “animal lover,” yet my actions didn’t match my words. A little over 3 years ago, I took a hard look at my health. I was “healthy” but my relationship with food was not. The second I dug deeper and discovered the horrors of the animal industry and the damage we were doing to our body and planet, it was a no brainer, I had to become plant based. I doubted myself at first. After all, I had been a meat eater my entire life. However, weeks became months, months became years, and I am never looking back. Today I eat an abundance of food. I never count calories, bounced right back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and am raising a healthy baby. I listen to my body and have a healthy respectful relationship with my food.
If you are already plant based, I encourage you to be a voice for the voiceless. Don’t shy away from the fact that you do not buy animal products, or are different from the norm. Of course, always be kind, compassionate, and loving. As cliche as it is, “Be the change you wish to see.” Make sure to follow @wearbarebones #nowimvegan campaign PM me if you have any questions😍
