Yesterday I came across a very interesting article that has made me think.
The reality of my life is this:
- I’m busy. (Two 12 hour work days this week is not the norm, but it happens relatively frequently.)
- I hurt. (That’s the “RA” part of the title of the blog! Sorry. Couldn’t resist!)
- I have many responsibilities.
- And I’m still learning how to cook for us all. (Vegan is one thing, but add in all of T’s recently discovered food allergies…)
Very quickly; Much too quickly in fact, I have fallen into relying on quick fix vegan junk food. Just because it doesn’t contain animal products doesn’t immediately make it healthy. (The mini oreos I had for lunch yesterday would be a PRIME example…)
In reading through some comments on vegan junk the thing that struck me was one person saying “I’m vegan and yet I eat very few fruits and vegetables…” I don’t see myself being like some people who’s comments I have read recently who say “If I don’t make it, I won’t eat it.” That’s just not practical for me. But I do need to find ways to eat less junk and more healthy real food. Because I did this for my health; If I’m just replacing with junky vegan stuff, it’s not worth it.
