Breakfast: delicious smoothie of bananas and cinnamon
post-breakfast-snack (just because I was craving one): 1 grapefruit
lunch: 1/2 banana smoothie + zucchinetti/raw marinara
dinner: banana smoothie I think probably...
I'm eating mostly bananas for my calorie intake and today I was feeling a little lethargic I think partially because I've been feeling a little emotional. I watched the documentary Earthlings today and if any of you 30BaD'ers have not seen it I highly recommend it... It's terrible and true and something everyone should have to watch. I balled my eyes out for the entirety of it.
Nothing like reaffirming your values when beginning a cleaner and happier lifestyle. You can hide from the truth but its akin to covering your eyes and pretending the world really disappears. Suffering is happening and change begins with us.
I'm a little curious about :
How can we bring this raw veganism into our lives every day? I know that the change needs to begin with me- that I obviously need to stick to a vegan diet... But what can I do (short of tying someone to a chair and making them watch this documentary) to convince them to try and partake in this diet with me? Even to CONSIDER this diet or attempting it in general?
I work in a vegetarian restaurant and I'm one of the only two vegetarians on staff there. They promote the lifestyle and we try to incorporate it into people's lives but it seems that they aren't practicing what they are preaching and if I try to ask them why they say : well I just crave meat. What am I suppose to counter that with? How to I approach a subject that means so much to me without ruining my relationships with my meat-eating friends and colleagues?
