For a few weeks we eat vegan and we love it. We never liked meat so much and for long time we do not eat it. The main reason is that we do not like how the animals are kept and the concept of raising them for killing.
For long time the thought was in our mind: What is with the animals that are kept for milk? Do they have a better life? Do they suffer less? No! We remembered our days working with the cows high in the Alps of Switzerland. These farms are the ones that produce high quality milk products and have the reputation of taking good care of the animals. But what we saw there was really shocking. The little cows were separated from their mothers to ensure the most milk production and they got the milk with antibiotics, because this would have been a waste to throw away. And the cows were milked up to the limit, even when they had bleeding boobs. Just to see the facts, a cow normally would live 30 years, but milk cows only make 6.
We were thinking, do we really want to support this dirty industry? Do we really want to drink and eat all this suffering?
Wait, we had an opposing thought in our mind: our body needs the milk products! But is it really like this? Why would nature design your body in a way that you have to take the milk that other animals produce for their babies? We started to inform ourselves. Proteins and calcium you can get from plants, this we knew already before. Then Zoé was reading about breastfeeding without milk products, and on the mainstream sites she read you have to take supplements for getting the sufficient amount of vitamin B12. This she really did not want to do. The breakthrough was when we found the beer yeast. Besides that it is super healthy and yummy, it also contains high amount of B12.
Finally, our ticket for a life without cruelty, justification and lying to ourselves. A life full of energy, love and the best body feeling ever. Honestly, we never felt better. All our lives we made sports. Sometimes it was even a main focus of our days. But never we had more energy than now. And not to forget, right now it is winter and we stay with our three dogs and our baby son, Hugó in a VW T3. So not the best conditions.
We never believed in the separation of body and mind. You are what you eat. Since we went vegan we feel really peaceful, have a lot of beautiful thoughts and plenty of new ideas. Food is for us again a source of inspiration and happiness.
Every shopping is so exciting and we always discover something new. Let it be soy cubes, spelt or sunflower seed spread.
Even more fun is the cooking. Every day we try new recipes and every day we discover how much fooled we have been before by western society and the puppets of the meat and milk industry. It is a good question why doctors and other so called experts still tell you that meat and milk are essential parts of a healthy diet. Maybe because they never tried an alternative, maybe because they never heard about the acid-base balance of the body, maybe because they are full of parasites and addicted to meat and maybe it is so much more easy to justify why you eat meat when you can claim that you need it.
And imagine how beautiful this world could be without all these lies, all these cruelty, all these blood for something that makes you fat, numb and unhealthy. Time to free yourself, go vegan!
