It does not take much to think of turning a vegan but the challenge comes after the decision is taken. How and where do you get all the right vegetables and fruits? Getting sausages out from the freezer is much easier than picking up fresh veggies, peeling or dicing them while they are still fresh. Yes, being a vegan requires lot of work and one needs real motivation to carry that out.
With that said, I would also like to include that all veggies may not be providing you the nutrition that you read about in books. The soil used for farming today is not the same as before. And I am not referring to the chemicals alone. Due to the market pressure, farmers are forced to give large quantity produce in short period of time. And they are doing all they can to make this possible.
Healthy farming practices include leaving the soil to heal itself without growing any crops for a year or more. This makes the soil gain its balance back and be capable of growing nutritional fruits and vegetables. Just like we hardly bother about what the animal we consume ate at the farm, we often ignore the details of farming practices followed at the farms where our crops grow.
If your health is one of the reasons why you turned vegan, give this a thought. See where you can buy organic food or maybe you can grow some in your own kitchen garden. Yes, it is difficult, it is complicated and it is expensive. But it is absolutely worth it.
