Changes

By : | 12 Comments | On : April 18, 2012 | Category : Blog

Over the past few months I’ve watched my loved ones suffer from heart attacks, bypass surgeries, diabetes and the pain of gout – all diet related issues. Fortunately they are all doing fine for now, but I think it’s time to start making some serious life changes. Diabetes Β and bypass surgeries have already taken lives from my family and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Specifically, this blog is inspired by my Dad, Uncle Frank, Uncle George and Aunt Suzie – your health is very important to me and it would be my pleasure to introduce you to a healthier way of life.

Also, far too often eating healthy is put on the back burner for those who are struggling financially. I’m hoping that this blog will eliminate any excuses about not being able to afford a plant-based diet. There was a time in my life where my dad and I ate chili from a can and hot dogs everyday. I cherish those memories and I think that a little struggle builds character, but I don’t think you need to compromise your health to save money.

I’m completely thrilled about writing for this blog, being inspired by the other talented contributors, and most of all, hearing from any readers who’d like to chat with me about tasty plant-based food.

    Great to see a new blog to help people be healthy. Here’s a post with weekly groceries and comparisons to census food-cost reports to see if it’s really expensive to eat vegan – http://innocentprimate.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/a-week-of-vegan-yum-will-it-break-the-bank/
    I’d love to see this new blog do reports like this to talk about the best way to eat vegan and keep costs down, and whether that’s even a difficult thing in the first place (relative to a non-vegan diet).

    I am so excited to have found your blog! I am relatively new to this plant based life, and trying to take it all in. I’m a married college student so budgeting is huge! So thank you in advance! I look forward to your recipes! πŸ™‚

    I think it’s WONDERFUL that you’re taking the reins and making it easier for your family to be healthy! My family is doing SO much better on a vegan diet – our medical issues have all but disappeared! Feel free to stop in to my blog for some recipe ideas. πŸ™‚

    Hi Tony!
    I really like your blog. Hopefully you will check out my blog and the changes I have made for my health by adopting a low-fat plant based diet.
    One thing that I am interested in is more great tasting recipes without oil or added fat.
