    Curtis Harwell Discusses Do You Really Want To Be a Vegetarian?

    in Fitness

    To eat meat, or not to eat meat...This is the question on many people's mind. The negative impact of animal foods on health, the damage associated with animal foods and the environment, religious beliefs, and the desire to protect and respect animals are some of the reasons for the increase in the number of people consuming vegetarian diets. Many people express an interest in consuming a vegetarian diet but don't do so because they are unsure of how to do it or are not ready to give up meat. Fortunately, there are options and lots of great resources available to help. The key to making this diet work for you is to understand what nutrients you are missing from the foods that you are not consuming and to learn how to balance your meals without these foods.

    Vegan - ish? Perhaps a nutrient dense diet should be the real talk

    in Current Events

    What is a vegan diet?  Why should I try a different diet?  Am I getting all the nutrients I need from my food?  Do you have to 'follow' a diet that others are labeling you with?  Perhaps you just eat healthy foods that support your life and body and do the best you can, is that ok?  What is a plant based diet?


    Mielle Chenier-Cowan Rose is the author of Veganish:  The Omnivore's Guide to Plant Based Cooking which allows us to choose that path of nutrition that might suit us as an individual.  This book shares tips on how to get started with food items that you may not be familiar with.  Many recipes are included to balance a diet with nutrients we may be lacking.  Mielle shares her journey with health challenges that caused her to jump a little off the path of vegetarian and a mother to get dense nutrients in to heal the body.

    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."
