    The Vegan Lifestyle w/ Brown Vegan

    in Vegetarian

    I am excited to have Monique from Brown Vegan coming on the show. Even though I became a vegetarian in 2013, I am now in a phase where I want to transition to becoming a vegan. Therefore, I wanted Monique to come on the show and share her journey. I found Monique on YouTube I believe last year. Her videos are great especially for those who are struggling with giving up certain foods where they can substitute them with other plant based options. I also enjoy the fact that she has a family which is helpful for those with children and/or a spouse. Yes, children can be vegan too! Of course I would suggest checking with a pediatrician and/or nutritionist as well, especially one who will be encouraging of this lifestyle with children (many of them promote meat and dairy diets). 


    The Bible speaks on how our bodies are the temples. I believe this also includes what we put inside of it. I do not believe that we should just put anything in our bodies, but to be conscious of what we are putting in it. This is not a show to force veganism down anyone's throats, but based on how the world is going, I strongly believe we should try to avoid and/or limit a lot of the foods we are used to eating.


    I hope this show will encourage those who are considering a vegan lifestyle or those who have already begun to embark on this journey. I am looking forward to learning about more options and ideas that Monique has. She has a lot of resources on her website as well, which I will place below.


    3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
