WHY VEGAN?

FIRST OF ALL, I AM VEGAN BECAUSE I DON'T FEEL SUPERIOR TO OTHER BEINGS, INCLUDING HUMANS. NOT ALL VEGANS ARE THE SAME, STOP ACCUSING AND LISTEN TO WHAT WE ARE SAYING. DON'T GET OFFENDED YOU'RE NOT A KID ANYMORE, IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH THEN PERHAPS IT'S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR ACTIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE. THANK YOU

If you feel fully content with a current state of our planet, the way people interact with each other, how we kill 2.5 million animals a year and how majority of deaths are caused by preventable diseases, then I guess a change doesn't seem necessary. But is it really enough? Is it all we can do? I just believe that there is always room for improvement and changing for better. We are constantly evolving, learning new things, exploring new places and growing. It's inevitable part of our nature and it's incredible that we are capable of doing so. That's why we should stay open-minded to new ideas, trying to look at our problems from different perspectives and ASK AS MANY WHYS AS POSSIBLE, question everything and never stop learning.

As I've said in the first sentence, under no circumstance do I consider myself better just because I am vegan, I still have a lot to learn. I feel like many people associate veganism with some kind of privilege, but the truth is this lifestyle can be as expensive or as cheap as you make it. It's all about having priorities, which are animals and finally ending their suffering. I just want you to forget for a few minutes everything you have ever been told about eating animals, whether it was about superiority of animal proteins, the fact that humans have 'always' eaten animals or that bacon tastes good.

Is it really natural for people to eat meat? I think about it this way: Do we have any natural instincts to do so? I am not talking about how much you love your burger. When you see a dog, you see how adorable it is, you don't think about killing it with your teeth and consuming the flesh. You could even get arrested for that. We don't eat raw meat, we cook and season it to make it tastes somehow good. No other carnivore or omnivore do that, except for us. We add a lot of salt, oil, spices and herbs, because it is unnatural for us to consume it in the first place. And no, we haven't always eaten meat, humans' diet mostly consisted of starches throughout majority of our existence.

What about milk? Milk gives you strong bones, right? And cows need to be milked, so we are actually helping them. This is what dairy industry wants you to believe, so they can make profit of you. Again, forget everything you have ever been told. Why cows produce milk? To feed humans or to feed their babies? Why women produce milk? To feed cows or to feed their babies? Why do we still believe we need to drink milk as a fully developed human beings? Again - it's all about business and making money. We don't live in a perfect world, nobody gives a fuck about our health, as long as their pockets are full. Animals produce milk to feed their newborn babies, who are still unable to eat normal food. And what humans do? We take away calves from their mums, so we can pour their milk over our cereal. What happens to calves? They are killed. Can you imagine stealing a baby from its mum right after giving a birth? IT'S HORRIBLE.

I encourage you watch this video:

I'm proud of being vegan.
I'm proud of thinking out of the box, even though I've been brainwashed myself I was able to find a way out and start seeing everything from slightly different perspective.
It's not only about me, it's about the whole planet earth, about other beings, about environment, about climate. But it's also about me, about my health, about feeding my body with food that my body is designed to run on. It's about happiness, not feeling guilty after a meal. It's also about excitement that finally you live for something bigger than yourself, that you're doing good, therefore the good will be returned to you as well. Your body, soul and mind are all connected, whether you are aware of it or not. You can't be really happy if you feed your body with products that in order to be produced caused pain and death to other beings. Think it through.


  


PS: Vegan food is FREAKING DELICIOUS! I've never spent less time preparing my meals, that were actually HEALTHY AND TASTY! And no, vegan food is not expensive. You can eat rice, pasta, veggies, fruits, bread, nuts, seeds - those are the cheapest foods in the world.
