I had an epiphany about the label of being a vegan. But it is quite the opposite
Humans are herbivores by nature, and omnivores by behaviour. In restaurants menus, Instead of adding labels such as ‘vegan’ by the dishes, it should be the other way around: a ‘contains meat’ label.
I want to write the definitive “guide for vegans” to myself with the premise that a plant-based diet is an ultimate way to stay healthy and save the world in the meantime. But I need a guide that shows me the path to become and stay vegan after thirty years of life being avid meat 🥩 eater and dairy 🥛 🧀 consumer.
This is the definitely ultimate guide to make a transition to plant-based food. I needed to build it for myself as a reference and to be conscious of the process. How to teach my body this new Lifestyle and philosophy, to know the science and the historical reasons behind the health meat industry, the health implications, the body energy and performance
During the year 2020, I will be documenting, enhancing and improving this guide to make it the “ultimate guide for vegans and plant-based food” lifestyle.
These are the questions that I want to approach in this guide and are always around every conversation and mind.

The new ingredients, variety, and body intakes
Are humans carnivorous? The same reason why there are no polar bears in the Sahara, we can eat raw meat. If you do eat raw meat without processing it, you will get immediately sick, because the acids in our stomachs aren’t strong enough to kill all the bacteria, and the long digestive system leaves the process of putrefaction of the meat inside our system, leading to provoke all kind of digestive cancers. We eat meat because we can transform it, not because we should.
The animal perspective
They put Mozart to the cows, so they produce more milk (a relaxing way to forget being continued pregnant and killing their male newborns because they are too expensive to grow them as beef) imagine doing that to your pet?
