[Music] flexitarian is a little bit of a vague and confusing term but it basically
00:00:06
means mostly vegetarian pretty clear right now with the degree in nutrition you might think that I have evidence or
00:00:13
scientific studies to point to to back this up but in reality I started eating this way mostly because the further I
00:00:21
dove into nutrition the more confused I got vegan ketogenic Paleo they all seem to be grounded in something real but
00:00:31
they all contradict each other at the same time is very confusing it just makes the most sense to me that the
00:00:38
safest way to eat would be to eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables and unprocessed plants as you can got a
00:00:46
little bit of a distrust with the meat industry as well I just don’t feel comfortable with all the hormones and
00:00:53
antibiotics that they pump into the animals if we are what we eat then wouldn’t we be what animals are eating
00:01:00
today I’m not talking about this from the context of like weight loss or weight gain but you never hear anybody
00:01:07
going oh I got high cholesterol doctor says I need to cut back on the carrots so you might be wondering why I don’t
00:01:14
preach veganism then with my channel and that is for two reasons the first one being mental sanity not talking about
00:01:22
food for your brain I’m talking about if I don’t get to eat certain foods I’m not gonna be a very joyful happy person
00:01:29
being an angry bitter person is probably just gonna be counterproductive to your health you know second this one might be
00:01:37
a topic of debate a little bit but when I look at hardcore vegans I tend to see a lot of leaning on processed foods and
00:01:47
you replace cheese with soy based vegan cheese like products you start talking about something that has a lot of
00:01:55
processed angry and sometimes I’m not sure that that’s healthier for you than just eating
00:02:01
cheese so I still cook and eat with animal products but when I do I try to look through the lens of is this going
00:02:09
to enhance the dish and honestly the answer is not always yes I just think that if you can eat mostly plants most
00:02:16
of the time you’re probably gonna set yourself off to be a pretty healthy individual
00:02:21
