More and more people ask me about my “diet”. Where do you get protein from? How do you maintain? Aren’t you hungry? Why not eat free range/organic meats? I get these questions and more . . . I also get some skewed and twisted faces when I tell them how I eat — a vegetable based diet. No animal byproducts. No meat. No chicken. No turkey. No cheese. Low sodium products are critical to my lifestyle — I read the packages and inquire, sometimes annoyingly about whether foods have oils, added salt, chemicals that “enhance or preserve” taste, etc. I have not always lived this way but it is a lifestyle choice. Each person has his/her own reasons for doing things. In my family, we each have our own reasons . . . Take a look at this website for a second. http://www.vegmichigan.org/.
Maybe you’ll find your own reasons . . . its worth a look and try.
