Anonymous said: hello! So I've been thinking about going vegan for soo long but im kind of scared and unsure about leaving meat out of my daily menu. Where am i going to get the vitamins and other important stuff (that are only in meat) from? I'm also scared that not eating meat would start affecting my body in like 20 years or so. Aren't you scared? Thanks for hearing me out and hopefully you can help me a little!!
Not scared at all! I’ve educated myself tremendously on veganism and raw vegan eating before starting anything and I suggest you do the same. There’s so many false perceptions of food out there, especially about meat being ‘healthy’ for you and a ‘necessary’ part of a diet. I suggest you read The China Study, 801010 by Douglass Graham, and watch a ton of documentaries (Forks Over Knives, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, Killer at Large, Food Inc., etc. I promise you, you will not be missing any vitamins or other important stuff from meat. You can get all of this (and more) from fresh fruits and vegetables. If anything, your body will only be positively affected by your transition to veganism. Hope this helps you xx
