Welcome

Welcome to The Brown-Skinned Vegan!

I have a strong passion for health and living a simplistic and holistic lifestyle. Health is a big factor in life that many people over look on a day-to-day basis. That "I don't care, as long as it taste good" mindset since leaving school has not sat well with me. I'm calling myself out on that one; I was there not too long ago. I knew thinking like that had to stop if I was going to move into the next chapter of life where health was a focus of mine.

Opening my eyes to the world of health feels like a breath of fresh air! I don't feel tied to the weight of societies standards and we shouldn't be. There is more to life than what is on the surface; the things we were told growing up. We are greater than what we give ourselves credit for. Not only experiencing it within myself, but watching family members and friends fall into what life is "supposed to be" instead of doing what they prefer to do even if that means living outside the box.

The box is our comfort zone, what we perceive to be the norm,  where we know there is not much that can go wrong. Living a simplistic and holistic lifestyle to me is being able to do the little (or big) things you want to do because they make you feel happy, they make you feel free. Don't shy away from what you want because other people will judge you.  Trust! They will judge you anyway. Here is another thought; Doctors are people, not super humans. Some doctors are borderline unhealthy as well, so listen to their advice but do your own research and bring back your findings for a better understanding. Doctors do their best to help suppress symptoms, but plants are the real cure. When in doubt see a (vegan) nutritionist. 

Peace, love, joy, happiness, these things are not always going to be given to us in the world we live in so we have to go out an get'em. 

I'm here because this is the beginning of my journey and I want to bring as many people as I can along with me to explore this simple life and enjoy loads of healthy eating along the way. Please share with your friends and family as we make strides towards Happiness, Health, and Healing.
