Why I went vegan

A non preachy story

One of the most asked questions I get is “so what made you go vegan?”. I don’t want to judge or try to convert anyone here, nor do I feel the need to explain myself. But the question has been asked, so let’s answer it. OK, time for the short story.

I’m very cautious when it comes to groceries. I tend to read nutrition labels, product description and ingredients list. I just like to know what I eat. Yet what I’ve noticed is that many people see only front of any given product cover. If it says “organic”, “low fat” or “healthy” - it is good, right? Wrong. Actually - very wrong. So I took some time to show you few examples of what you can find in nutrition tables.

I know that there are many studies saying that the tables are outdated or inaccurate and somehow I can agree with that. Yet if there are two similar products and one has 3 times more added sugar in it - you don’t have to be genius to know it’s bad for you.

This was a great week and even better weekend. I've completed my first even run at Triathlon Show 2013 with not that embarrassing time of 47 minutes and 36 seconds. On top of that I've bought few things with quite nice prices (but when you add few cheap things, your account still cries!). If that’s not enough, I've beaten the 10000 calories from last week. Crazy, fun, fatigue and some more crazy.
