Another Vegan’s Goals for 2012

2012 has arrived and that means I’m setting goals for this new glorious year.

Confession is good, right?!! Yes, I believe it is good. I began this blog to keep myself accountable for a diet I believed would improve my health, but I loved cheese and every time I would start previously I would fail. BECAUSE I LOVE CHEESE! I love the taste, the smell, the dense loveliness, the variety of flavors and the enhancement of foods…oh, it goes on. The major problem with my love of cheese if that I am allergic to cow’s milk and soy. So, after a lifetime of cutting out milk, eggs, soy…I still ate cheese. I was encroaching on 60 and having gut pain; hence realized that cheese could be a major problem (and it really isn’t a major food group – cheese in itself).

Whew, thanks for letting me get that off my Vegan chest!! So, in a way I am a selfish Vegan because I want to be Vegan for the health benefits. I’ve been a partial vegetarian for over 20 years and a vegetarian for 19 years. So, new chapter of being Vegan.

I feel wonderful, the gut pain is gone, and I believe this is the optimum way of life for me. I’ve spent those past years studying the work and research of Neal Barnard, M.D., John McDougall, M.D., Dean Ornish, M.D., Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, Andrew Weil, M.D. and the Seventh Day Adventist Church (no, I am not a member – just a fan of their way of life). I love the 21 Day Vegan Kickstart plan and am currently enrolled in another of their kickstarts – new learning each time.

 

Now those goals:

1. Get a picture and more stuff on my About Me tab – I don’t want to be anonymous anymore.

2. Develop my Top Ten Fave Recipes.

     (It’s a process – pictures to follow)

3.  Find the balance between blogging and exercising – I need to exercise more.

 

 

 My goals ended on 3 for now – may be more later i.e.: travel more and worry less

  1. Maranatha Romania Adventist Mission is a lay self-supporting adventist ministry. We are a group of young people and Christian Adventist brethren from Romania, from many areas of the country who want to serve God and people through our time, talents, money and everything we have. As an organization desiring to spread the Gospel, our aim is to work in harmony with the Bible, the writings of Ellen G. White, and the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

    1. Welcome to my blog. I’m not Adventist although took a series of their cooking classes back in the 1980’s. My first real introduction to healthy vegetarian food. Bless you on your journey!
