Plant-based is absolutely the best way to go and I go that way naturally and that diet is also compatible with my blood-type as our blood-types have a lot to do with our distinct personalities (https://misslatoya.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/blood-typepersonality-type/).
In the early nineties a little over twenty years ago there was a health food store that I use to go to and purchase vitamins and vegan food from because back then I had stopped eating poultry and seafood altogether along with red meat. I hadn’t eaten red meat since I was about twelve. It was until I turned about eighteen that I would eat poultry and fish here and there and I still do from time to time but I never went back to eating red meat and I never will.
Then I use to head a little further down to Grand Union supermarket to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables-oh, those were the good ole days!
This particular health food store sold quality products and they had a veggie protein soy grounds item that came in a package inside of a box that didn’t need to be refrigerated. And I use to cook it in a sauce and stuff it inside a pita-like pocket bread and it was so healthy and delicious I don’t see anything like this nowadays.
My mother and one of her friends had ate a meatless veggie burger from there once back then and told me how good that it was I had never ever had a veggie burger until recently.
I had a black bean veggie burger that tasted good and that filled me up as I heated and covered it with Chao brand original creamy vegan cheese slices (the only non dairy cheese that I ever tasted that could actually pass for cheese).
“Daiya” vegan cheese slices were the nastiest thing I had ever tasted in my life and the shit had made me sick for a few days. “Tofutti” cheese slices were more on the style of Kraft singles American cheese yet the product still didn’t taste all that hot.
Just because something is labeled vegan or vegetarian doesn’t necessarily mean that it is healthy or nutritious for us it all depends on how the food was processed and manufactured. I don’t trust too many items which is why I do stick to simple fresh foods and grains like broccoli, pineapples, rice and the rest of that yummy stuff that is so very nutritious and healthy but I do like my soy milk by “Silk”, soy ice cream by “So Delicious” and oil and fruit-based buttery spread and white cheddar vegan puffs that is not made from any dairy by “Earth Balance”.
This past Friday, Sunday and Monday which was yesterday I enjoyed a nice and wonderful day at work doing my occupational activities and so far everything was professional as it should be and that is the way that I like it; to go to work enjoying what I do with no bullshit just doing good business, providing sufficient performance and helping out the customers as they need and inquire none of us that are genuinely productive and constructive and that mean well have any time for nonsense just peace and contentment.
When I got off the job I went straight to the neighborhood grocery to pick out some items and was so delighted to come across a great quality non dairy plant-based buttery spread that I had heard of and a non dairy vegan/vegetarian cheddar style cheese that I hadn’t paid attention to even notice was stocked there in that supermarket for as long as I have been going there. Now I don’t have to go out of my way or spend a fortune to buy my certain other non dairy items to indulge in as they are at a reasonable price and nearby location.
My day was made after I left that supermarket as I love to eat and live healthily it is just exciting to me to know there are so many foods becoming more available for the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle to choose from. I love my soy meat (textured soy protein that I deliciously discovered years ago back in the early nineties) I love my very vanilla non dairy soy milk, vanilla non dairy ice cream and non dairy alternative cheese and butter all made from plants, fruits, vegetables and vegetable oils.
Our own personal environment and lifestyle play a significant role within keeping our aura/energy field as well as mind, body, and spirit maintained, unaffected and protected against negativity and darkness and that livelihood comes natural when we are in tune to the universe within our own specific innate tendency.
Even while I am at rest my overactive brain is always ticking with the full force of natural productive energy.
I have a mind that I refuse to put to waste and a voice that I do not hesitate to put forward as it is not wise to hinder our talents and gifts whatever it is that they may be to us and within our capability so I go along with the celestial flow of automatic message and design.
