Sarah Taylor’s book, “Vegetarian to Vegan,” gives you the insights to not only understanding the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan, it gives you the insight to understand where our food really comes from and the destruction it is causing to our bodies.
The information concerning our environment pertaining to where our food comes from and how our food is manufactured is a critical factor to why our society has such a huge increase in diseases and many common medical conditions. One important factor I learned from this book is that you need to make sure you have a clear understanding of the foods you are consuming. Foods such as milk may not be as healthy as you think even though we were brought up to think that milk creates strong bones and helps for grow. Scientists today are confirming that milk is a huge reason for inflammation, asthma, runny noses, rashes hives, constipation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, itchy, swollen eyes and iron-deficient anemia. By making a few changes in your diet, creating a healthy lifestyle and eating vegan can change your entire life.
In chapter 1 and 2, in the beginning of the book, beginning on page 17, Taylor not only discusses about how milk and eggs cause more damage to our bodies than good, she shows you how by providing you with endless information consisting of how our milk and eggs are is really made, what surprisingly unhealthy substances, chemicals, hormones, and antibiotics are in our milk and how our government lets manufacturers sell it to us in this unhealthy manner. Taylor also describes how these poor animals are tortured and keep in unhealthy habitats, which are not only bad for the animals, but vitally harmful it is for the consumers as well.
Sarah Taylor’s approach to encourage others to become vegetarian and then consider becoming vegan was brilliant. All her information in her book was backed by scientific evidence not just by her opinion. She laid out the facts, explained to the readers why we need to rethink the way we eat and provided scientific evidence and testimonials to back up content in the book.
Taylor helped me realize that WE control our bodies and we can change the way we look and feel by providing our bodies with the vitamins and nutrients we need through the foods we eat. Society does not need to rely on meats, eggs, dairy, over-the-counter or prescription pills. We need to rely on ourselves and seriously reconsider the foods eat on a daily basis.
As you continue reading, you will find testimonials throughout the book, from others, who have used Sarah Taylor’s advice and applied it to their daily lives. All of them discuss their success using Taylor’s strategies and techniques. I am excited to try to implement a lot of Taylor’s advice into my life. If others had success, I am sure I will too.
The read was enjoyable because the book provides you with the stepping-stones and techniques to go from a regular eater to vegetarian to possibly a vegan if you choose to go that route. Sarah Taylor the author provides the reader with extraordinary tools and techniques that help you become a healthier eater, vegetarian or vegan.
As the book unfolds, you surprisingly begin to see how you can achieve and maintain optimum health, if you take the time to prepare your foods, excluding the unhealthy foods from your diet and including the foods in your diet suggested by Sarah Taylor.
This book on becoming a vegan and the recipes included were remarkable. The book captured my interest and it has motivated me to make seriously lifestyle changes because when we take a little extra time to prepare our meals at home using the right foods, we can not only help ourselves but help to improve our families’ health as well.
In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you need to care for your body. If you have time to watch, TV or go shopping then you, have the time to put aside to care for your body. Diseases and medical conditions are a reality and if you are not careful, you could be a victim.
