WHY I’M NO LONGER VEGAN || EX-VEGAN || PART 1
After 5 years of being vegan I have left this way of eating and have adopted an omnivorous diet that is centered on nutrient dense animal foods–liver, meat, fish, eggs, dairy.
It’s been a while year of adopting these foods into my diet and my health has radically changed for the better. I didn’t realize how important animal foods are to ones health until I took them out and the reintroduced them back in and good really feel how grounding and nourishing these foods are.
Below are some sources that really helped me understand how the vegan diet was NOT the miracle cure and “perfect” diet I once thought it was.
