I was once told that I don’t care about others’ health because I recommend animal products. I have No problem helping a vegan client and have done research on healthy vegan diets to help those who choose to eat vegan. In this post, I want to explain why I eat animal products and how to make good choices.
️I do love animals, but humans have hunted for centuries. I realize we are no longer hunting and gathering, but animals eat other animals too. My ancestors have eaten fish and meat for thousands of years without issue, so I see no problem with it.
️I do have a problem with the unethical, mass production of meat, but there are increasingly more companies steering away from using antibiotics, hormones, and poor conditions. ️But the fat and cholesterol! Always choose leans cuts, and I personally avoid pork, dairy, and processed meats. Also, animal fat is not terrible in moderation, like everything else.
️Many vegan substitute products are full of soy and other mysterious ingredients. It’s best to avoid heavily processed foods in any attempt to eat healthy. Meat, fish, and eggs are low processed, whole foods.
️Animal products are complete proteins and contain all essential amino acids. It takes a little more versatility to make vegan complete proteins.
️It is possible, but more difficult to get in a high amount of protein on a vegan diet. Eggs, chicken, lean beef, turkey, and bison are my favorite sources of animal protein.
️Protein is super important in a healthy diet because it makes up all of our bodily structures. Since animal meat is similar to our body composition, our bodies accept it well.
