Consider “Going Vegan” One Day Per Week

Posted on Sep 14, 2017


If your diet consists of pepperoni pizza slices and Pepsi daily, you may be willfully contributing to inflammation in your body that ultimately causes problems.

While most people are animal meat eaters, it’s not that unusual anymore for people to “go vegan.” What does that mean? Well, a vegan is someone who primarily eats plant-based foods, cutting out animal meat from their diet. So, instead of steak, chicken, turkey and pork, a vegan’s going to eat things like kale, spinach, carrots and almonds.

Going vegan usually takes some time for the mind and body to “get used to” where it becomes “the new norm” for a person. You don’t just stop eating meat one day never to eat it again. Instead, you start to cut down on your meat intake while increasing your intake of nuts, fruits, veggies, etc. Why do this? The short answer is that it’s healthier!

Did you know there are vegan versions of pretty much every type of food people like? Just because someone is vegan doesn’t mean they’re the most healthy person on the planet, though, because there are vegan versions of “junk food” which aren’t the best for a person. That said, an overall vegan approach to what you put into your body is going to help take away inflammation and, most likely, going to make you look and feel healthier.

Veganism has been around since the 1940s. It must have benefits to people since there are still plenty of people who pursue the vegan lifestyle today. Generally, you get into the vegan world when someone you know recommends it and you’re willing to take their advice. Of course there are plenty of books, videos and more detailing “how to be a vegan,” so you’re welcome to seek those out if you’re interested in making a lifestyle change for the better.

Meat eaters and vegans can co-exist peacefully– it is possible. Depending on what you feel is right and best for your body and your health, veganism is a viable and healthy way to approach life. Vegans have often reported feeling happier, healthier and more energetic thanks to their plant-based eating habits compared to their sluggish and yucky feelings associated with eating potentially carcinogenic meat products.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
