What are you, a vegetarian? A vegan? WHAT?

I’m a Vegimaximizer.

Vegimaxitarian? Whatever. I like “vegimaximizer.” The more the better. I don’t rule anything out. I like bacon, although I don’t keep it in the house. I eat eggs for sure.
Here’s a question for you – what do “humanitarians” eat?

Pictured: RIce with shiitake, saffron, wasabi, kimchi, and bonito flakes, seasoned with tamari and ume vinegar. Steamed acorn squash and sweet potato with tamari, sesame oil and rice vinegar. Coconut-fried tofu, eggplant and garlic garnished with scallions and tamari.
This was TASTY!

    I like what you said, I am a Sudo-Vegan! I eat meat once a week, I guess that makes me weak but really, it balances me! I have lost 96 pounds eating healthy, eating ‘ clean’ and as close to the ground as possible. I don’t eat eggs, milk, trying to cut out oil, cut back my cheese, it’s all so confuzzled isn’t it?

    Your good eats here look amazing!

    Thanks for this post, I really enjoyed! I am new to this lifestyle, the blogging world and my Husband and I are just trying to figure it all out!

    Take care,

      Hi Traci!
      Whatever you’re doing seems to be working for you! Congratulations on the 96 lbs!
      I like your “confuzzled” word. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there, much of it deliberately disseminated via publicity campaigns funded by people trying to fool us. It’s a dangerous world out there, and we’re left holding the bag trying to sort it out.
      I’ve found some honest bloggers, researchers and physicians with a passion for the truth about these issues, and I follow them and re-post their findings in my own blog, book and elsewhere. I have a Facebook page for my book.
      There has been some fundamental misinformation out there that’s been widely accepted by the medical community, government agencies, and the general public. The whole story about this particular misinformation is here.
      To summarize in response to your post:
      1. Fat is good. Especially fat that’s high in Omega-3 oils. Examples: nuts, egg yolks, butter from grass-fed cows, goose & duck fats, fish oils, avocados. Grass-fed beef (although I avoid this for other reasons), coconut oil, olive oil.
      2. Cutting out fat is dangerous for a number of reasons.
      3. Fat and “cholesterol” have an entirely different relationship than we’ve been told. Cholesterol is an immune response to inflammation of the arterial walls. What causes inflammation? One of the widest causes is gluten, although not for everybody… more people than has been previously believed have some degree of gluten sensitivity (see the posts by Dr Mark Hyman on my FB page above)
      4. The enemy is manufactured, “fast,” and packaged food (as you seem to imply). Sugar, high fructose corn syrup, dyes, artificial flavorings, preservatives, trans-fats, etc.
      5. Beware any package that says “Healthy,” “Natural,” “High Fiber,” or “Heart-Healthy” on the outside. The product is most likely manufactured garbage and the manufacturer needs to either lie or stretch the truth with bogus claims to sell it.
