30 Bananas a Day!

Hi I'm Bella. I'm a RT4 vegan. I'm happy ,healthy and carbed up for the win. Rewind 5 years and I was rocking a pituatary tumour,and chronic kidney conditions from a high protein fitness bunny diet .My kidneys and headaches were sending me on an international tour of hospitals. Nobody was coming to save me. But fate intervened and I stumbled apron the missing piece of the puzzle one night sleeping at Brisbane airport waiting to board a flight ,after an epic backpacking fail . One click of the arrow on YouTube sent me on a marathon journey towards the biggest epiphany of my life. An Entree of Food Inc followed by a main of Gary Yourofskys best speech and a side of Freelee and Durianrider. I had been surviving on snickers bars in a misguided attempt to save money, but by the time I boarded the flight, boom I was Vegan. It is the best decision I've ever made and the one I'm most proud of. My headaches have improved, I wear frozen vegetables under my beanie when I sleep much less frequently and my general wellbeing and coping mechanisms from my plant powered lifestyle enables me to head headaches off at the pass. The Brain tumour is benign and not growing. My Kidneys are no longer inflamed or struggling to process animal protein. I have significantly less UTIs caused by ecoli present in deli chicken and dairy products. My quality of life, focus inspiration and desire to veganise the world have taken friends and family by storm..When we are on to a good thing we naturally want to shout it from the rooftops. So I quit my job creating high protein Dukan style diets for diabetics and started working in a whole foods store while I complete my nutrition degree. I have attracted positive awake people into my life and started a Vegan collective at my local organic store. I love to hear inspirational stories from others and hope that sharing my story would show how simple and easy going vegan is. From hungry caterpillar to Vegan butterfly
