|What a Curl Wants||
Today is the day! I have decided to go cold turkey and start my official journey into veganism. For the past few months I have been in a transition stage (this stage has also been going on since I was 16, but whose counting). When I decide on doing something I like try to and get as many facts as I can, I go research crazy, then I decide if this is the right choice for me. I read all the pros and cons to this lifestyle and aside from the nutritional aspects of it I have come to realize veganism is more than just a healthier diet choice (though it is possible to be unhealthy and vegan many processed foods are vegan). The fact of the matter stands not only am I doing this for myself but also I feel that like animals are not here for my benefit. I had to ask myself, how can I call myself an animal lover if I only show care for one set of animals like dogs and cats but not show the same love and respect to other animals. I have spoken to family and friends and although they have health concerns I am confident that this is the best choice for me. I am ready to move on in this journey and ready to post everything in between. I will try and update everyday on what I eat and do related to this and hopefully inspire someone to take the plunge.
When I set out to be a blogger I wanted to make sure that my blog offered more than just one subject. I needed something not only that I was passionate or obsessed with but something that I can talk about all in one space and that my readers (if I have any) would enjoy. I am new to this, so that's probably why posts are not often but I will do my best as to keep up with that. Now for the topic at hand. I am the kind of person that if there is an abundance of steps in a tutorial, recipe, even an application I just cant bring myself to sit still long enough to do it. I love food, I really do love food and as much as I love it I do not like preparing it. I like things to be quick and easy and if it requires me to do more than I am willing to do it is like a uphill battle, on a hot day with a backpack that can carry a small child. Yes I am dramatic but I think we can all agree that cooking is not a thrill for everyone. When I was in middle school Spy Kids came out and they had this microwave that you popped a small packet in, turned the microwave on and there you go your meal hot and ready. They made a 3D printer that can make a pizza, this microwave is quicker. I think in the year 2015 we need to have this patented, like yesterday.
Now with all of that drama I will admit that starting my transition into veganism has made things a bit simpler. There are lots of recipes with 5 ingredients or less even meals 30 minutes or less. Rawtil4 meals is probably one of the quicker ways to prepare your meals everything is eaten how it is no need for cooking. But I don't want to just stick to the same ones I would like to try the more intense recipes, I just want someone to do them for me. I know that I am not the only person who feels this way. I would really like to know about all the people who hate cooking as much as I do and maybe we can motivate each other to actually want to, or we can just sit and talk about how much we love food but we hate making it.
I have not been on for awhile been caught up with family issues, and blogging is hard.
Now the reason behind this post. Firstly my blog is not just about natural hair. I want to use this to inform about anything I am passionate about and this is one of those things. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. What took place in McKinney Texas should never have happened. What is worse is the blatant justification of what an adult male, not a cop because he crossed the line feels the need to use his authority on a 15 year old girl in her bathing suit. This was a clear violation of human rights and another situation where black lives where mistreated. I am tired of those who abuse authority and cause harm to others simply because they think they can. I'm tired of feeling like if I speak out on any injustice especially those done to black people I'm too black power, or I am an angry black women. I watched that video and I nearly fell. That could have been my cousin, my friend and no adult saw anything wrong because well she was being "mouthy". I will no longer stand for this, we need to get it together this mistreatment of black lives has gone on long enough and something needs to be done. I need people to stop and think and really take a good look because in order for us to come together we need to address the problem head on.
