So today was a day at work, my first day there since i got my new doo, and it was nice to hear positive comments about it :) I only had one little talk today with someone about being vegan. She was eating a pork burrito during the conversation nonetheless......and she was telling me how her niece is vegan and that she always posts "facebook stuff about arguing with people over how she eats. She says stuff like would u eat ur cat? and all that....Us meat eaters dont usually pick on people for being vegetarian (lol ya right), so why should she always have to say things about people eating meat?" I told her ive had an instance with a friend who used to be vegetarian for years and then went to eating meat. He hunts i believe as well, and was trying to argue with me one night that a fruit (i think it was tomato, or something that is of course a fruit) was a vegetable. I told him that all fruits are the reproductive parts of the plants, hence their seeds, and that vegetables are the root part. Atleast thats the thing i remember the most clearly from nutrition class, because it stood out the most to me. He kept telling me it wasnt true, then asked me well whats a pumpkin? peas? all this stuff, he then ended the "argument" with "well i know im right". So i mean, its very difficult to deal with people even if you are telling them straight up facts. If they are stubborn enough, they wont budge. That friend of mine said he even "makes up for all of the time he missed out on eating meat back then now. meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner." I must ask him what exactly made him decide to eat the meat if he was raised vegetarian...
My mom told me today that she was getting some "funny" comments regarding how i eat. She said people are asking "where does she get her protein??!" "man thats a lot of sugar" "well i guess youll get protein if u eat 20 BANANAS i guess..." of course my reply to these are oh my gosh. Its just mind boggling to me how uninformed people are and how they think the ONLY source of protein....is from an animal.....any time someone asks me that question from now on i'll ask "How does a gorilla get theirs? A horse? Pretty sure theyre a lot stronger than most humans." I really want to do some films asking random people about their views on meat or not eating it and everything. I think it would be fun to shed the light. I cant wait till we have another family function, im excited to hear their remarks and then to come at them with the truth. Just have to study up a little more on 811 so i can be fully prepared. Im not going to let anyone, esPECIALLY family, make me feel bad about eating fruits and veggies.....and then for me not to return the favor of asking howcome the way i eat is so rediculous when you are the ones eating dead animal flesh and secretions and mold and carcinogens. MMM sounds like exactly what i should be doing!! Maybe then i'll get diabetes like a few of them! or need heart surgery like my pepe, oh joy! i should DEFINITELY be eating like them.......oh the sarcasm, it lightens up my mood a tad when i start to get a little over heated on thinking about that subject. What is so odd about eating just fruits and veggies, seriously?.....It's not odd to eat a dead animals leg that u slather with chemical and preservative and then add carcinogens to on a grill?.....obviouslyyyyy we up in HERE no whats going DOWN! lol
**TEETH UPDATE** alright so ever since i started 811, i stopped using toothpaste and mouthwash and switched to just baking soda.....i notice my teeth now always feel different, like plaque buildup even if i brush....i have gotten some cavities.....my filling popped off last night while flossing.....and all together my teeth have been getting more sensitive and hurting even more from sweet dates touching them for instance. WATER even makes my teeth hurt. I was doing well with teeth health by brushing with toms natural toothpaste and using the ACT mouthwash they tell u to use at the dentist....but i didnt want to use that anymore cuz i guess your only supposed to need water ?....well....idk really what to think about this subject now that my teeth are hurting more and more everyday....and more cavities, decay is happening...i clench/grind my teeth terribly when i sleep, i wear a retainer and bite plane to prevent my teeth from getting eroded away....but im not sure this no toothpaste/mouthwash thing is helping my teeth...since it is making it worse.......what are other peoples experiences with this? I went into stopping toothpaste and mouthwash with already extremely sensitive and cavity prone teeth from clenching them causing my gums to recede more.... any advice :( ? now i have to get a filling put back on tomorrow, im in so much pain, water cant touch that tooth, and the max amount of novacane doesnt ever prevent me from feeling pain.
I tried butter lettuce for the first time tonight, and i must say, this is the first and only lettuce ive tried that i liked (almost) on its own. i ate a whole head, and the only other then i put with the lettuce was chopped up red bell pepper (my most favorite salad topper :P ) I also got a big bag of organic red grapes today and had about a cup and a half of those, gotta make those babies last longer than a day, too dang pricey! My sleep schedule is of course still thrown off because i a on the vicious nap cycle that prevents me from getting to sleep at a reasonable hour when i actually NEED to sleep....i tried to force myself to stay awake today when i got home from work.....but i was just so exhausted.
Tomorrow i am not looking forward to the dentists bright an early....really one of my biggest fears. Plus i had a mean one a few times, which adds to my dislike.
Goodnight Grapes :)
