I’m currently exploring veganism as a way to lose weight and improve my health. My path involves a lot of raw food and excludes a lot of processed food (white flour, white sugar, white rice, etc). So I was wondering, how many of my fellow African-Americans have embraced or are considering embracing a veggie-centered lifestyle when it comes to what you put in your mouth? What are your reasons for changing your diet? How long have you embraced vegetarianism or veganism? What is making you consider making a change if you haven’t already?
Let me know what you think.
