30 Bananas a Day!

I am 36 yrs old. Happily married mom of three little boys. I am a sensitive, compassionate person, and because of my sensitivity, I have always had a hard time consuming animals. I toyed back and forth with Veganism, and I had liked it, but being human, soemtimes a cheeseburger that didn't have a soy aftertaste would call to me, and I would go against my beliefs for selfish instant gratification. When we moved to our new home in the country, it just so happens that I live down the street from 2 farms. One sells miniature ponies (good Lord are they adorable), and the other is a cattle farm. Many times I have called the cops because a cow got loose. Not that I WANTED to have the cow go back to the farm, as they are raised for beef consumption, but at least they would not be hit by a car, or injure someone. Everytime I drove by those cows I would feel so awful, because I had just gone grocery shopping, and having a family of meat-eating men, I would buy beef. Organic, but beef none the less. I would see the baby cows frolicking with their mothers. I know all about what happens once those animals are herded onto the big silver truck...I have had nightmares about it. So the only thing I can do to help the cows is to be a Vegan. I have gone the Vegetarian route, but come on....the cows and hens still go through immense pain for the Dairy Industry to make $$$$. If you HATE yourself for putting some butter on your toast or cream in your coffee, then maybe Veganism is the best way to go for you. So anyway, I have increased my fruit consumption IMMENSELY. I am still adjusting so I may eat a cup of rice or potatoes with my greens, but other than that it is fruit and fruit smoothie everything, along with some decaf green tea. I feel great, and I could lose a few pounds, too, which I know this will help me do. But it isn't just for weight-loss, not at all. I want to live to see my three boys grow up. Thanks for reading!
