Today, February 18th, 2019, marks my one year anniversary of being fully
Whole Food Plant Based. I have not had animal products including meat, dairy, fish, eggs, etc since a rib I ate on this date a year ago.
As you may know from following this BLOG, my initial transition took several months. In fact as I look back I realize I didn’t even know about WFPB when I started eliminating sugar from my diet in the fall of 2017. I was simply trying to be healthier and lose weight.
Along the way, I replaced sugar filled foods with natural foods like fruit and vegetables. I started eating hummus. I switched to cereals, salad dressing and sauces that didn’t have added sugars.
So when I learned about WFPB the switch made sense. The science backed it up. So on February 18, 2018 I split a plate of ribs with my brother while we were visiting Memphis. Since then I have not eaten any meat or dairy.
I feel great. Have lost weight. My blood numbers are the best they have been since high school. While I didn’t choose this lifestyle for animals or the environment it is nice to know that these benefits exist as well.
