I have always been quite a healthy eater, since childhood I was the little girl eating salads and carrot sticks instead of the pizza and chips. My parents were always big of eating red meat, chicken, and pork. For a very long time, so was I. In the past year, I have made a pact with myself to limiting my consumption of animal product. Not only for the animals themselves, but as well as the health of my own body. I do not eat proccessed foods, neither red meat, chicken, pork. Living on a plant-based diet has not only helped me lose weight, but has helped open my eyes to the cruelties of this world.
I am an animal lover. All my life I have been surrounded by different kinds of animals from kitties, puppies, horses, chickens and even monkies! Through my younger teenage years I was completely oblivious to all the torture that has been going on behind closed doors of the meat industry. I have read, watched, and educated myself to where I have completely changed my way of eating; and the importance I put on what goes into my body. I couldn't imagine going back to my previous ways of eating, as my body does not crave neither enjoy it anymore. For the better! :)
Besides my eating habits, I am an active athlete! I run, bike, life weights and push my body to be the best it can be. For a long amount of time I was overweight (40lbs heavier than I am now) from a moment of my life of, emotional eating, overconsumption of protein, and sweets. I disliked what I saw in the mirror, and promised to change. Now I exercise 5 days a week, Running and always training! I have never felt, or looked better, in my life. :)
In my more personal life, I am also an artist and musician. I daw Japanese animation characters for magazines, comic books and websites. Besides art as well, Piano has been a passion of mine since I was very very young! One day I will share my works on here~ but alas... That is for another time. ♥
In the future I hope to become a full Vegan, and work towards my dream of becoming a Culinary Chef. I am still learning and experiencing new things everyday, and I hope you will enjoy reading !~
