Did you know avocados are must have if you are leading a vegan lifestyle?

Avocados stand as fiber rich and vitamin rich fruits that you can notice in cooler regions in the world. However, avocados are packaged today and sold by supermarkets. They are not just used to eat but serve as a wonderful source to create several beauty products.

Many of us wanted to lead an eco-friendly lifestyle but do not know how.

If you have recently turned vegan, here are 3 tips to use avocados.

Before we begin to create our beauty products, purchase your avocados first.

Let’s start.

1. Avocado Face Mask

Does your face have wrinkles? Do you need a flawless skin? Do you wish to prove your skin is the testimony of your vegan lifestyle? Want to look younger? Avocado face mask is at your help.

Cut avocado into two. Take out the mush with a fork and start applying to your face. Leave it for 10 minutes. It begins to dry. Wash your face after 30 minutes.

Adopting a vegan lifestyle is an effective, yet a cautious transition as it impacts many lives.

Dianne Padayachee has recently turned 40 years and has had a history of multiple medical complications. She has been on medicines for so long that she had side effects and became hopeless. Going vegan has changed her life.

Vegan Tomorrow conversed with Dianne to understand her story on reason behind going vegan.

Tell us about your health complications

I have had a long history of endometriosis which further led to numerous complications like irregular heartbeat, epilepsy, high blood pressure and chronic pain.

It did not stop there. I underwent over 11 surgeries and was informed that I could not conceive anymore. It put me to a state of depression that I gained weight and my lifestyle worsened.

Oops, what made you to go vegan?

Well, I had stomach infection earlier this year and doctors then informed me that my intestines and bowels were bleeding due to ulcer. Over medication, thanks to surgeries, has made me face this side effect. Finally, I was discharged after quite sometime and I had to happily return home and relax.

Here is the turning point in my life:

My husband and I were having meat and watching a documentary titled ‘What the health‘.

The documentary has truly ignited our minds and that was when we thought plant based diet is superior to other forms of diet.

So, did you turn vegan immediately?

I did transition slowly but heartily. I conducted lots of research to get the facts right before I follow and advocate vegan lifestyle. Since I was on medication, I need to take care of my health as well.

I was urging my physician to keep me rid of tablets and she advised a b12 and multivitamin. In just 6 months, I could see a progress in my health status. I was a vegan on and off in the first 6 months but now I am entirely a vegan.

What was your typical diet pattern?

I was too conscious in consuming the right plant based food to heal my body as well as mind. My diet does not contain soy products and processed foods due to epilepsy. Here is what I followed:

Breakfast: Fruit and vegetable smoothies blended with ginger, turmeric, hemp seeds and flax seeds / oatmeal with fruit and sunflower and pumpkin seeds

Lunch and dinner: Salads typically comprising of avocado, pineapple and some yummy dressing.

To enrich my vegan protein intake, I consumed quinoa salad, roasted veggies, stir fried vegetables, beans and lentils.

On top of all these, adequate water and exercise helped me boost my health further.

I had another benefit due to this vegan diet. I lost 16kgs total in 6 months and have become healthier.

Tell us how vegan lifestyle has impacted you

I assumed it to be a tough transition but I was enjoying throughout.

I started to lead a vegan lifestyle for my health benefit but I came to know that this life can eliminate the agony faced by other animals.

To be even precise, I have never felt better in terms of mind, body and soul until I turned vegan.

Do you have anything inspiring to add further?

I am not special, just one among many facing a simular situation. We need to rightly use this life of excess. I always get inspired by this quote – eat to live and not live to eat. I would advise everyone to eat the right one to live and let other lives live too.

Going vegan is as easy as 1-2-3.

Manjula Ganesan is a Chennai based animal and vegan activist who is keen about animal liberation and vegan lifestyle. As Vegan Tomorrow started to converse with her, she began with a quote by Thiruvalluvar:

“கொல்லான் புலாலை மறுத்தானைக் கைகூப்பி

எல்லா உயிருந் தொழும்”

The quote ideally insists to refrain from killing a life to feed the other and treat every life equally.

When and how did you become a vegan?

It is just a year or two since I became a vegan. But then, becoming vegan was never in my bucket list until I educated myself with a lot of videos about animal cruelty and the need to spread compassion to other living beings.

How easy was going vegan?

Certainly, it was not an easy task to go vegan. Something that you had practiced for decades are undergoing a major transformation but I was happy about the transition.

The first thing that I did as a part of going vegan is to switch to vegan diet plan.

Nevertheless, vegans can eat anything plant based but the knowledge to gain access to such foods took time.

The second thing that I did was to spread the “BEHIND THE SCENES ANIMAL CRUELTY” videos to as many people as possible.

While some already knew and were in their transition stages, majority of them were appalled about the media. They never knew that they have been contributing to animal cruelty and environmental degradation so long.

The third thing that I followed was to be a part of vegan activism groups to exchange ideas, views and educate more people.

Tell us why you chose to go vegan

There are just 3 reasons that I like to cite:

Number 1: To end animal cruelty

A cow is harmed and separated from the calf to obtain milk and supply it to humans. Lot of animals are tortured and put to a painful death so humans can make leather accessories out of them. There are still lot more to quote. I have spent sleepless nights thinking how each person is contributing to the cruelty even without the knowledge.

As I am also an animal rescuer, I also realize that animals do have feelings which many of the people do not understand. The gratitude that an animal has on us should never be misused or harmed.

Number 2: To conserve the planet

It is noted that 1 serving of beef consumes about 1200 gallons of water. That’s huge. By going vegan, I am saving thousands of gallons of water. The carbon footprint is effectively managed and I transfer a rich legacy to my upcoming generations.

I do not want the future generations of this world to suffer without water, without land and without air.

Number 3: For a better health

I have had ulcer and other health issues and I was skeptical if the switch over to vegan diet plan might still worsen. However, the results proved wrong. The peanut yoghurt and plant based milk have cured my health problems and kept me fit at all times.

Before and after:

Before After
I have been addicted to chemicals. I live a life with negligent value of chemicals.
I followed a poor lifestyle that worsened my health. After going vegan, I follow a rich lifestyle that I am proud of and I am hale and healthy.
I was one in a million to lead a life. I stay unique as I behave responsibly and cautious about my choices. I am indeed glad that I do not misuse other lives for my personal pleasure.

 

Going vegan is the best decision I have taken in my life. I would also encourage more people to go vegan. This can save you and not just you! It saves every life!

Vegan Vs Vegetarian – Which One To Choose https://vegantomorrow.com/go-vegan/vegan-vs-vegetarian-which-one-to-choose/ https://vegantomorrow.com/go-vegan/vegan-vs-vegetarian-which-one-to-choose/#comments Sat, 11 Aug 2018 10:28:53 +0000 https://vegantomorrow.com/?p=53 Happy life vs guilty life – Which one would you choose?

Happy life vs guilty life – Which one would you choose? Happy life, isn’t it? That is how you can differentiate between vegan vs vegetarian.

The best way to tell you about vegan vs vegetarian is that vegetarian is a diet form whereas veganism is a lifestyle. Since ages, we have been co-existing with fellow living beings and our ancestors have been following healthy and compassionate lifestyles. With the rapid change in human evolution, people have failed to realize the importance of being compassionate.

The concept of co-existence has vanished and people have exploited fellow living beings in as many ways as possible. Every reader, including YOU, would have contributed to this exploitation by some means. The best definition of raw veganism is the idea to put an end to the exploitation of fellow living beings such as animals, birds, and reptiles for the human greed. Raw veganism discusses more on a lifestyle towards social justice.

The future of the world is VEGANISM.

While many claim that vegan is a form of vegetarian diet, it is important to note that there are several aspects to it. Raw veganism insists compassionate treatment of animals, ethical choice of day to day products including food and clothing and a way to protect our environment.

The commonly known difference between vegan and vegetarian is that vegetarians exclude animal flesh in their food consumption pattern while vegans exclude any activity that entertains misuse of animals. In other words, veganism encourages exclusion of dairy, honey, animal flesh, products tested on animals and misuse of animals.

If you are a non-vegetarian or a vegetarian eater, here is something that you should pay attention to:

– Every creature in this world has evolved just like YOU. None has the right to kill one to please the other. Hence, raw veganism presents a guilt-free lifestyle where every person can consume healthy and natural foods when they need to.

– Future generations wanted to witness the same elephants, dogs, sheep and every animal/ bird that you see today. Do not make them extinct for your self-satisfaction. Your contribution today can prevent the other creatures from going extinct.

– As you adopt a vegan lifestyle, you indirectly put an end to ill-treatment of animals in circuses, races, and zoos.

Did you know that the cow’s milk that you drink today is not 100% pure?

The cattle feed formula today is adulterated to the extent that the milk is filled with chemicals.

Did you know that you are drinking oxytocin?

One in 5 farmers injects female cows with oxytocin to produce more cows. 4 out of 5 farmers abandon their cows or provide them to a slaughterhouse when the milk supply is stopped. Isn’t it cruel to the cow as well as to you to consume chemicals?

going vegan

Perhaps, if you had to think of vegan vs vegetarian, a responsible citizen should certainly think of going vegan. This can save you, your surroundings and your planet. What more?

Choose a lifestyle that keeps you and your upcoming generations guilt free! Go vegan today!!
