How Hard Is It to Be a Vegan?

I have people ask me all the time how hard is it to be vegan. They ask me how hard is it to restrict myself and backtrack from over 44 years of eating meat. It’s actually easier than you think. Whether it’s steak, bacon, eggs, nuggets, cheese, hamburgers, or hotdogs… I simply uncover my eyes and see it for what it is… the flesh of other animals. I simply choose to not eat the flesh of animals anymore and choose to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and whole grains, which provide all the nutrients I need without the side effects (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity). In other words, I choose life over death. Restricting? No… it’s liberating. I am happier now than I have ever been in my life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I am finally enjoying both the journey and the destination. And yes, you are invited to join me, but I will not force you. The choice is yours.
