Jose’s interview – URUGUAY – #HUMAN

We have invented a mountain of superfluous needs. Shopping for new, discarding the old … That’s a waste of our lives! When I buy something, or when you buy it, you’re not paying money for it. You are paying with the hours of life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is one thing that money can’t buy. Life only gets shorter. And it’s pitiful to waste one’s life and freedom that way.” – José Mujica, President of Uruguay #minimalism #minimalismo

Guide to becoming a Healthy Vegan

Below is what you need to know in order to start your vegan journey. Remember, being vegan does not mean that you are eating healthy. You need to know what to eat to make the most of the benefits of this diet as well as reduce its risk. 

Note: this post will be updated regularly as I learn more about this diet

What you should consume:

Download the Daily Dozen application

What you should not consume:

  • Animal product (meat, chicken, fish, etc.)
  • Dairy (milk, cheese, yoghurt, etc.)
  • Oil
  • Added salt
  • Added sugar
  • Processed food (Refined carbohydrates, sodas, etc.)

Additional Supplements:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D (if you do not spend enough time under the sun)
  • DHA/EPA (Omega 3) 200mg per day – Not sure about this one yet.
  • Zinc
  • Iodine

Other tips:

  • Only eat when you are hungry in order to give your body time to detoxify. (See catabolic phase vs anabolic phase of the digestive system)
  • Eat only up to 2 ounces of animal product (meat, fish, chicken, etc.) a day if you have to. It should be used as a flavouring to your food, not the main meal. Better yet, eat the non-commercial animal products such as wild animals

Funny thing! I came across this song a couple of month ago. I really liked and kept on listening on replay. Then one day I decided to watch the actual video as it was playing and to my great surprise, I knew the singer. She is part of a church I used to attend. Listen to this again today as I read that the church is closing. Mixed feelings…
