Autumn has slowly crept in, but it seems that summer is not ready to give up. Air is fresh and crisp with sun beaming through the bright sky. I cannot help myself but slip down the memory lane and remember last month, when we set out for an amazing journey to Poland. Me and my girls, Julia and Livi. The weather was splendid as well as the surroundings and company of our friends and family. Every day was packed with action. We stayed in Poznan for about a week and then traveled to Kamionek. Small village with magnificent trails to run or ride, situated on the side of Kamieniec Lake. However, it was utterly different experience that I’m very grateful for. Part of our family living there is running their own, sustainable, organic farm. Being able to help around and experience the nitty-gritty from first hand was eye opening and real.
Before leaving for our family journey I had made a decision, that I’m going to start Plant power diet at the very instant of our return back to UK. Now, me and my wife have stopped eating meat few months ago. Even though we experienced setbacks, like going to a party and eating odd slice of chicken or pork, we still kept eating fish and dairy. It wasn’t until I started to do my research and came across a book by Rich Roll, titled ‘Finding Ultra’, that made me consider and really deeply think to go all the way. Give up meat, fish, dairy and anything that was produced or came as a by-product from animals.
I’m three weeks in and feel amazing! I feel having more energy, recover faster after physical activities and being more productive. Plus, being completely honest, I find it very satisfying to know that my money do not support this chaos and atrocious actions by producers farming on the LARGE scale. Exploiting not only us, but more importantly our environment. On the contrary, I rather support small, sustainable farms and businesses, which control all the produce from the seed to the plant. What goes into to soil to feed the plants and therefore the quality of the final product.
What do you think about replacing meat produce and diary with plants? Do you agree that we can shift the consequences of industrial actions as well as ours by simply becoming conscious consumers and choose, where we spend our money and what we get in return?
Cheers & Love
