Are You Vegan or Vegetarian?

“Are you vegan or vegetarian?”

I get really happy when someone asks me this question because it is obvious, to them, that I eat healthy. Your body is a reflection of your lifestyle and if makes me proud of myself to be acknowledged as visibly healthy.


At first, I wasn’t sure how to answer the question. I don’t eat a lot of meat and when I do it’s typically fish, so maybe I am a pescetarian? However, I do have chicken once in a while so guess I’m not pescetarian. Although, at the same time, I also go through phases where I don’t eat any meat, so maybe I am a vegetarian? Then come to think of it some vegetarians don’t eat cheese (or is that vegan?). Oh, and I avoid a lot of grains so maybe I’m gluten free? Ah! There’s so much! ….I usually end up saying, “No, I just eat healthy.

As you navigate through your healthy lifestyle you’ll have a better understanding of which foods to eat and which foods to avoid {for whatever reason – but more than likely for health & comfort}. For example, while dining at a posh restaurant the other night, a delicious pizza was calling my name but I knew that I would feel sick if I ate the pizza {which wouldn’t be fun for the night we were about to have} because the dough makes me so sick. So, instead, I choose a salad and it was super healthy (even the dressing!) and delicious! Not to forget to mention I didn’t feel icky or sick after dinner.

My point in all of this is that when you start to make healthy food choices then others will notice. It will be clear in your appearance, your food choices and your overall well being that you are on a healthy path. Others will want to know if you are a vegetarian or vegan. …& then you can tell them, “No, I just eat healthy.

Keep it healthy,
