How to become a vegan.....hmmmm, how did I become a vegan.  Let me tell you.  The first step was I got pregnant at age 38 and now have a 3 year old and 18 month old, at age 41.  You can skip this step if you'd like. Second step, realize that if you want to live a long time, you have to get healthy.  That doesnt mean just lose weight and be skinny.  I said HEALTHY, not skinny.  Change your diet, no scratch that, change your LIFESTYLE.  Easy? HELL NO. Worth it? HELL YES!

.Third step, watch FOOD INC.  Please pay special attention to this movie, it could save your life.

 Fourth step., watch Forks Over Knives,   I think you might even be able yo watch this free online.  Also, dont forget your local library, they have it FREE!

Last step for the first part of STEP ONE. read Slaughterhouse   by Gail Eisnitz.

Then take some time and think about what you have learned, what the mainstream media is keeping from you.  What the government is keeping from you.  If you get the chance, read The China Study by Dr. Campbell. I will give you extra credit for this!  

 

Stay tuned for STEP TWO!
