I enjoyed my previous Christian Vegan chat so much that I’ve decided to make this a series of videos. I think it’s fascinating to hear about other people’s journeys and how they arrive at a particular way of life. We all have to eat. And the decision of what we eat and how we eat is something that is within our own control once we are adults. Over the weekend I had the pleasure of chatting with Hellen whom I connected with on Instagram. She is a fellow Christian who adopted a plant based diet a year ago and hasn’t looked back. In fact, her husband and son decided to join her in this new lifestyle after watching an alarming video and experiencing drastic health improvements on a plant based diet.
During my chat with Hellen I started to feel really encouraged because she shared that she has met other people at church who eat a plant based diet. And although her family back home in Brazil hasn’t fully accepted her new way of eating, her congregation has been very loving and accepting of it. I think this is a common experience for many people who switch to a plant based diet. The majority of people eat meat on this planet, so unless you grow up in a vegan family, you’re bound to get a few side eyes.
“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there!” Step out 😉
