Welcome to Everyday Healthy
Can you imagine a life without using processed foods? Or even a life without using meat or fish? Do you dislike the meat industry but think that it is too complicated to move away from meat?
I believe anyone can enjoy the pleasure of wholefoods and healthy food without any animal products and without the added hassle of spending hours in the kitchen.
EAT REAL FOOD
If you’ve read the book from Michael Pollan “In defense of food” you might remember his opening line. “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” I believe it really is that simple. I have chosen very recently to move away from any animal products so the recipes you will find here are all plant-based. Sometimes vegetarian, mostly vegan.
Who am I?
My name is Simone and I have eaten meat, fish and other animal products my entire life. Didn’t really think twice about it, even though I have always been an animal lover. But for the last couple of years I started seeing more and more images and documentaries on the atrocities people are doing to animals in the name of ‘food’. And after watching Cowspiracy, Fork over Knives and Food inc. in a rather short period of time, I had enough. I decided to become vegetarian overnight. But at the same time the idea of going vegan intrigued me and scared me at the same time. I decided to first see if vegetarian would ‘hold’ but within a couple of weeks I felt I was moving more and more towards vegan. And then figured I might as well go for it. It’s still work in progress as it is not always easy. Especially socially it is somewhat of a handicap. Non of my friends at the moment are vegan and I know only one vegetarian so you can probably guess how that can pose a bit of a problem.. 🙂
If you’re like me and wanting to move away from animal products towards plant based only and want to know more on the nutritional facts behind it, recipes and other info on vegan travel and more, then do follow along! And we can get used to eating vegan together!
O and I am studying holistic nutrition at the moment too. So any nutritional questions? Feel free to ask!
