Surrounded by a sea of golden-yellow rape and basked in rays of sunlight soaring across an azure blue sky. The setting on this particular May weekend (12-13th) was simply picturesque as we made our way across the fields of our hometown.
“Making the Connection – Chapter 7″ – a truly remarkable and persuasive insight into veganism brought to us by the Vegan Society and notable poet & author, Benjamin Zephaniah.
Despite hearing about ‘Making the Connection’ last year, I have only just seen this video today.
This was something I wrote a few months ago in response to somebody’s blog that suggested all vegetarians and vegans were “pasty, pale, anaemic and protein-deficient eccentrics, who chose to deliberately deprive themselves of good health”. Obviously, I responded and I like to think I presented an honest and dignified rebuttal, based on fact. I just wanted to share this post with my readers before I delete the document, whilst carrying out my dreaded ‘computer spring clean’.
Having studied nutrition in quite some depth, I can tell you that the idea of vegetarianism or veganism devitalising and prohibiting an individual from living a healthy lifestyle, is utterly ridiculous.
