DAY TWENTY NINE: Mantra for Monday no. 44
It’s only a matter of time before the tide changes. That said I think change has already begun, a rolling wave slowly but surely gathering momentum as people wake up and realise that the solution we seek has been here all along.
Food….both our enemy and our saviour.
In my day to day life so many people are coming to face the fact that their lifestyle needs to change. So many people I know have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol or wheat intolerance. All these issues can be understood and overcome with a change in diet, it requires simply thinking about what you consume and stripping things back to centre around wholefoods, real foods, plant based foods (I appreciate a wheat intolerance is different to the latter two).
Even those you have not had such a wake-up call and a forced change in direction should appreciate the incredible benefits to health and wellness simply through food. Before becoming plant based I would have been the first to tell you that I was ‘healthy’ and had a ‘healthy diet’, and in the eyes of society and the norm I was indeed pretty ‘healthy’. I simply had no idea how much more my sense of health and wellbeing could be improved, and with nothing to compare it to how was I to know, what reason would I have to change?
My question to others who are contemplating a plant based lifestyle, those who now know of the potential benefits, would be how could you not just give it a try? For the animals, the environment and most of all yourself. The word is getting out there, more and more people are becoming aware of the ‘talk’ and all it takes is action to simply try.
