MAKE THE SHIFT- Eat Less Animal Foods and Eat More Plant based food.
The month of October is National Vegetarian Awareness month. This is the month to experiment. More and more reasons to become vegetarian are coming to view. Here are a few:
1. Consciousness-Learn to appreciate what you eat, how you prepare it and special meditative time involved in the preparation. Enjoy your special time and make it work for you.
2. Health -Plant based foods are loaded with fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals. They are cholesterol free and mostly low in saturated fat.
3. Environmental - The food we eat impacts our environment. Raising animals for food in large "factory farming" operations uses large amounts of natural resources like grain, land and water. It produces water pollution, soil erosion and "greenhouse gases." A plant based diet uses fewer resources and takes less of a toll on the environment.
The latest statistics released by Vegetarian Times has quoted that 46% of Americans or 120 million people are reducing their meat consumption.
With so much right how can it be wrong for you. Add more veggies and fruit to your diet this month to support National Vegetarian Awareness month. Start with that. See how you feel. I bet you see a difference both spiritually , physically and morally.
You are what you eat.
Enough preaching now, but I really wanted you to realize how far it all goes. Think about it. Let me know how you all feel about it. Keep on blogging.
Until next week,
