FOOD — We all need it to survive, and some of us love to eat it. I for one am a self proclaimed FOODIE. If I wasn’t writing this blog for you today, more than likely I would be in the kitchen!
I am not just any FOODIE though, I am a vegan and have not eaten animal products for the last eight years. Living in Spain, it comes as a surprise to many because veganism is not something akin to the culture here. Most of the dishes are based around meat and fish, as well as ham. Needless to say, wherever I go, if there is a need to eat, there are limited options and a flood of questions regarding my diet, my dietary needs, etc., etc.
Being vegan however has a lot of benefits both socially, environmentally, and personally. Most prominently if you maintain a balanced diet, you will find that you are awarded the health benefits of not being sick as frequently, if at all. I can’t tell you the last time I had a cold, flu, etc.
In 2008, a documentary film was released about the relation of food, nutrition and well being. the film, Food Matters, suggests that a selective diet can play a key role in treating a range of health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and depression without the need of medical treatment. The film promotes veganism and a raw food diet as well as treatments with vitamins and herbs as opposed to pharmaceutical medication.
