healthy eating for teenagers

Okay look, I know everybody keep mentioning carrots, and I’m not even, like, trying to think or question the obvious symbolism we’re supposed to.. see here but I can’t keep quiet anymore

WHY ARE ALL THOSE TEENAGERS EATING CARROTS THAT WAY LIKE IT’S A NORMAL THING???????

Is that cultural? Is it a thing people do that somehow I haven’t been aware of for the past 24 years of my life???? I’m so baffled, someone please explain.

It was another normal sunny day in New York. It happened to be just a typical Saturday for you. Since you didn’t want to be overwhelmed in your laziness back at home, you grabbed your car keys and drove out to the gym.

For the past few years or so, you got so into high intensive training and healthy eating. Back as a teenager, you were never really satisfied with your weight and so now as an adult, you decided to change up your body and your lifestyle.

Approaching the gym, you said hi to one of the workers you knew there and made your way into the actual gym where all the equipment was at. You first got on a treadmill, tying your long hair back into a high ponytail.

Usually at the gym, you never got hit on before. Especially since you didn’t find yourself rather attractive from when you were a sweaty mess until today was when it all changed.

Okay so today is my 4th year veganniversay, so I thought I would share my story of how I became a vegan (a real vegan).

I guess my journey started when I was a child, when I first found out that “lamb” the meat is the same as a lamb. I was about 4 years old and told my mother I didn’t want to eat animals, she ignored me because i was 4, and kept feeding it to me. And I guess I decided not to think about it after that, because my mum told me i “needed” meat, she thought she was doing what’s best, what she has been taught was right. I was also diagnosed as lactose intolerant when i was young, so my mum bought the lactose free cows milk. I think this was a big cause of my allergies (severe cat allergy, hayfever, skin conditions) All of them cleared up when i gave up dairy.. (coincidence, i think not)

At the age of 15 I went vegetarian, I had a few vegetarian friends by that time and so it dawned on me that I could actually live and be healthy without eating animals.
Now my diet was shocking for all my teenage years, I basically subsisted on cheese, and processed white foods (pasta, bread etc) I wasn’t really into veggies but i loved cheese, pasta, noodles. (basically i had to cook for myself because my mum couldn’t be bothered making separate meals for me)
This lead to me being anemic, it also lead to me having gall stones (which would cause me severe gall attacks, so painful i would pass out)
Just before my 18th birthday, i had my gall bladder out, the only operation i have ever had. Gall stones run in my family, but after that i decided i wouldn’t eat cheese or dairy any more. I also had a friend who was vegan, and me and some friends challenged each other to all go vegan, most of them lasted a week or two, but for me it was easy to stick to because I didn’t want to eat dairy. 
I was calling myself a vegan from then, but really, all i was eating was plant based and not even all of the time. If i got drunk or it was inconvenient, i would eat cheese or mayo with egg, i still used animal tested cosmetics and wasn’t at all educated in the cruelty involved in dairy or eggs. I honest believed that cows just produced milk because they ate grass. (holy shit, i know right?)
So that first picture up there, is me at 18, when i was a vegetarian calling myself vegan. (hahaahahahah i am everything i hate, i know, i see the irony)

Because this was only a diet for me, when i was about 20 i went back to eating cheese/eggs. I remember at my 21st i even have meat options for people… i know right? 
A short while after that, me and my partner vegan-because-fuck-you moved into a house together, they were reading blogs on tumblr and followed some vegans and said to me one day “hey, we should both go vegan” and I thought yeah, okay (but i did finish off some vegetarian food i had first, actually most of it i ended up feeding to my mums dog) 
I then tried to watch earthlings, and i can remember i couldn’t even get past the pets part, and Emory comes in and asks me why I am watching that, i was having a panic attack. 
From then on, i researched everything, i learnt so much… I learnt calves are killed for dairy, i learnt male chicks are ground up alive for eggs. I couldn’t help but share this everywhere i could (mostly facebook) and i fought with so many people, i lost so many “friends” because they defended animal abuse…

So that’s my journey to veganism. From a vegetarian, to a fake vegan to a real vegan :P I wish i didn’t waste so much time being selfish, but that’s life. I’m here and I’m never going back and that’s all that matters.

I’ve been running this blog a long time, and i have the best followers, so if you need help going vegan, I’m here.
