Worked a lot for several months and it was only natural to get myself some treats. Nothing too exquisite – simple retro watch, two sterling silver rings and a new phone ( bought it used ).

Had some trouble finding nice non-leather watch, but this one was just perfect!

Also ordered polyester fedora hat, it was really hard to find vegan options because most of them are made from wool. Expect it to arrive in a week or two.

Went through similar trouble earlier this month while searching for vegan shoes, but found great cheap ones at Deichmann store made from some type of fabric.

p.s.

Disappointed to find out that McDonald’s french fries are not vegan.

Vegan

It was September 3rd, 2016 – day that I officially decided to go Vegan. Several months before that I followed mostly Pescetarian diet ( But ate fish so rarely that for the most part I was Vegetarian ) Having said that, being Vegan is more than just a food choice! It is sharing love and compassion, which makes perfect sense and agrees with teachings of my favorite philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti!

So, what changes did I experience in the last month or so? There is so many things to be said, but will try to narrow it down. My observations are as follow:

  • Mind is more clear, as if there is one less burden in life
  • More energy
  • Lower body-fat levels
  • So many new information, options and choices – but yet so simple and easy to follow

Many people seem to be afraid of going Vegan, probably thinking that by removing animal products we are somehow going against our ‘carnivorous instincts’, not getting enough nutrition etc. – but reality seems to be that we were never carnivores in the first place! And there is no shortage of nutritious foods, on the contrary! More on that in later posts, but basically it seems that our bodies and organs are that of herbivores and always have been! But why and where did we go astray? It may be, after all, that our egos got so much out of control that we wanted to show dominance by eating flash of other species, slowly but surely hurting and poisoning not only ourselves in the process, but life as well..
