personally, i eat all plants 🌱 but i am open to exploring why others cannot transition!
as of July 26th, 2021, I want to pursue 95% whole, unprocessed, gluten-free, soy-free, unrefined foods, which means no sugar, refined carbs, while also focusing on omega 3 fats, monounsaturated fats.
I mostly want to eat vegetables, fruits, & other plant-based foods, while also trying to integrate nuts/seeds (they're not my favorite honestly), and I want to try glucomannan. My aim now is to not only to eat plant-based/vegan food, but also a focus on eating foods that optimize gut flora that provides prebiotics (nondigestible food ingredients that promotes the growth of bacterial microorganisms in the intenstine ) to promote healthy bacteria in the guts.
“Each year, humans inflict suffering on billions of animals that are reared and killed for food and other commodities or used in scientific research. Then there is the suffering inflicted on those animals whose habitat is destroyed by encroaching humans, the suffering caused to animals by pollution and other environmental degradation, and the gratuitous suffering inflicted out of pure malice” (“Better Never To Have Been: The Harm of Coming Into Existence” by David Benatar, pg. 224)
