And so here comes the next post 🙂
I turned 21 on the 2nd of August. It is a little bit strange to get older. 🙂 And I finally decided to get a tattoo. So 6th August I got this:
So.. I am still trying to be vegan. I am fully vegetarian but I still have problems with finding the food without dairy. So to put in numbers : 100 % vegetarian and 70 % vegan. But I am feeling great and I am planning to go full vegan until my 22nd birthday which is kind a special age for me. We visited ”Fat pumpkin” and it was soooo delicious.
June was quite interesting. We went to a wedding. It was really nice. We had some romantic moments especially in the car.
Then another day we drove to Madona with the same car (Which belongs to my father) and it had again problems with starting up. We ended up pushing the car while we were in the graveyard ;D Actually it was Kaspars and his grandparents who pushed the car, because I was driving. My first problems with a car. 😉
Last Saturday it was a teambuilding event for my departement. We had fun time and especially while climbing the thing which was called ”Vells” (translates to Devil). When I got up approximately 2 meters.. my heart started to race and I was in doubt and wasn’t sure if I could do climb any further. I just took some deep breaths and ended up climbing to the top. My colleague helped me a lot by shouting ”Daiga, you can do it!”.
And last but not least... Another attempt of mine to go vegan. Since June 16th I haven’t eaten any meat and I don’t know why but it has been very easy. So I have a feeling that I won’t bounce back to eating it again. But we’ll see of course. And there are other animal products. I haven’t bought milk in few months now although it was my favourite drink together with dinner. The three products that I find most difficult to cut out are sour cream, cheese and eggs. For me meat is the one product that I don’t want to go back because it makes me feel sad to eat a dead animal. The rest of animal products I just want to minimize as much as possible because they don’t have so many benefits. As I also don’t like these labels ”vegan” or ”vegetarian” or ”meat eater” I just call myself a person that avoids eating animal products.
Why am I doing this? I have to be honest here: It wasn’t the fact that someone is dying that struck me the most or made me think about what I am eating. Because I know that animals also have a soul and they still live on and we can see other animals eating each other in nature. So for me firstly it was Teal Swan who talked about so called ”spiritual diet”. Because I was and still am very interested in achieving OBE on regular basis and I wanted to make my body more alkaline so that it is more likely to happen. And I just understood how healthy it is to cut out animal products and how it could change my health for good. Later on it was Freelee the Banana girl who can be quite harsh sometimes but I guess that that is what I like about her. She is direct and honest. I felt inspired looking at her body and knowing that she is doing all the right things regarding the diet and seeing her blending some fruits and repeating ” you can eat as much as you can! No calories restriction!” just made sense to me because I did not want to do that. She made me buy a blender, finally. Thank god! Now I can have my smoothies! So now when I think about meat and other animal products I also have this good feeling that no one has to get hurt because of me and this is a big bonus. So I see this as a win – win situation. I get my beauty, strength and health and animals get to live on. And I am not there yet to make other people think about going vegan as Freelee is doing this. I am happy that someone is doing this ;D But when it comes to me I just want to make myself feel good and when another person is ready to listen about this lifestyle I will be more that glad to share ideas. P.s. you can find both Teal Swan and Freelee on youtube. Oh and one more thing – after not eating meat and minimal amount of animal products just for 5 days I felt my skin go soooo soft. I didn’t know that my skin can be so soft! I am amazed! My acne is getting better and my intestines are feeling a lot better.
I have been trying go vegan for a long time and I also had a lot of doubts about protein which we can get from meat and dairy.. and it turn out that there are a lot of plants that can give you full protein. One of my favourite ones are buckwheat and amaranth. 🙂
And now photos and videos!:

So today I would like to share with some good videos.
For nearly a year I have been listening to different spiritual teachers (not so much the religious teachers) and recently I have really started to think about changing the diet which would mean to exclude all animal products. So basically veganism. To make such a decision I really needed more to know about this. Because in our culture there are so many lies that have been told so many times that people do not even question it any more. I also intend to have family in near future so I also have to think about the diet that would benefit the baby. And then there are sentences that come to my mind: ”Milk gives you calcium” OK. But can’t you get it from somewhere else? Sure you can. ”Meat gives you protein.” OK. But can’t you get it from somewhere else? Sure you can. And so this continues.. not to mention the fact that you are also consuming unnecessary contents. I had a lot of questions but very few answers. So here was a great video that explained more about the nutrition:
And you know it also seems fair that you don’t eat your pet as well as other animals. Because… where is the difference? Culture? But that is not enough. I am not getting crazy about this…. eating animal products…it just do not make sense any more not only from a moral perspective but also when it comes to nutrition. And the best way to make sure about something is try it yourself right? So far it seems a healthy path to take.. just have to get familiar with all that and find new recipes. So I will let you know more about this when I will have mapped everything out because I eat A LOT of dairy 😀 So I actually have to change a lot of products that I buy.
Another thing that I would like to talk about is vaccines. I have not been curious about them the same way I have not been questioning the food industry… as I said ” A lie that has been told so many times that it becomes the truth”. The ultimate question is if there is no proof that the vaccines actually prevent from getting a virus.. then WHY THE F*** ARE EXPERIMENTING LIKE THAT? Wouldn’t it make more sense to know what we are doing here? This video is quite long so I guess only really interested people will watch the whole thing.
I am really concerned about the way we do things on earth. Everything is so destructive.. I would like to see a information age that tells the truth! I would live in a world where people can eat what they want and they know why. And when it comes to vaccines.. the fact that you are mandatory to put chemicals in your baby and yourself is just absurd. Freedom? That is an illusion. People should be allowed to make their decision about anything when it comes to their own body and life.
I am just trying to comprehend the world that I am living in and the best way to live for myself. Question everything, please! Question also me and this post. Find your own truth and your own path! 🙂
