So I have some exciting news. We’re going vegan. Here’s why.
I feel like this blog is all over the place. Currently it’s mainly for sharing my experiences and Information I learn as a parent. Because of the reasons I have for going vegan my son will also be a vegan too.
I realize that some people think that’s child abuse not allowing your child to have meat or cows milk because of all the nutrients they provide, but hear me out.
I hope that you’ll read this whole article and watch the video below. Many people choose to remain ignorant to much of the information that is available to them today for their own reasons but who is that helping? No one likes being called ignorant, but so many choose the ignore what’s right in their face.
I’m not asking you to change. Just take in this information.
Why we’re going vegan
There are three main reason why someone would go vegan. They are environment, animals, and health. My number reason is the environment while my moms is health. In the video below I discuss these reasons.
Where do you get protein from if not from meat?
Fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans. Mainly nuts and beans. And if you feel like your not getting enough you’re lucky to live in a time where we have things like protein powder.
What if your child is picky like most kids and doesn’t want to eat the foods that will give him these nutrients?
I don’t expect my son to be any different from other kids. Realize that they’ll be foods he needs that he’s not gonna like. I’ll just do like many other moms do either I’ll sneak it in with other foods or I’ll make sure he gets it in the form of supplements.
Choosing to do this is more than just about me and what I want. It’s about my son, the planet, and our health.
When my son gets old enough I will allow him to choose what he wants to do. Though I make sure he understands why we do what we do. I’m not going to force him to keep a lifestyle he does not want.
I feel like I must say this, but I will make sure that my son is getting the proper nutrition (which is possible without animal products). That is why us going vegan is going to be a slow process. I have to make sure he is going to be healthy.
If you have the time please watch cowspirosy. It’s what made me want to go vegan. Even if you would never condsider going vegan just watch it for the information. It’s not one of those gory films that show animals being tortured, but it’s very informative.
Also check out my YouTube channel Journey to eating green to follow us on our journey to becoming vegan. I will be posting new videos on that channel every Friday.
What’s your opinion of people that don’t eat animal products? I’d like to know.
