In 2010 I changed my diet from vegetarian to vegan out of ethical reasons. Since then I have joined vegan forums where I learnt about eating hcrv. I feel best, eating this way. However, I still eat cooked vegan.
(Update April 2013: I am now gluten-free. Hooray! :D )
I still have to write something in here about how important religion/spirituality is to me. ...
- Ok, I decided to copy here, what I wrote as a comment beneath a video, because it sums up quite well, how I feel about eating healthy, about life and religion:
"It's all about love. But where do you get the energy to love (yourself and others)? If your food deprives you of energy, then: how should you be able to love? It's just easier with more healthy food. Food is a tool to fulfill your purpose, food is not the purpose itself.
(Fruit gives you mental energy. Mental energy equals happiness. Happiness makes it easy for you to love. To love is the meaning of life.)"

30bad is a HCRV (high carb, raw vegan) internet community which promotes a high carb raw lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to HCRV. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings.

I will not comply because my freedom of screech is just so important
