Free Day

When pursuing a health and wellness goal, it sometimes makes sense to give yourself a free day, in which you don't pursue or engage in the goal activity.

With exercise, a free day allows your muscles to heal, actually making them stronger quicker.

With diet, a free day allows you some flexibility without completely falling off the wagon. 

Some people think it is hard to change to a whole food plant based diet. So they don't. But just like with exercise, it is possible to go meat free SOMETIMES. Research suggests that if everyone cut meat consumption by 50%, humanity could hit climate change goals set forth in various global climate change summits (like The Paris Climate Accords of 2015). All that would require is for meat eating people to decide to only eat meat three times per week (a little less than half the time), while generally eating the typical amount of meat on the free days.

Of course, 100% whole food plant based veganism is ideal for the health of individuals and the planet. But, we need to be realistic about what is achievable.

I challenge everyone who currently eats meat, dairy, and eggs, to a 30 day challenge. For 30 days, can you only eat animal based foods three days per week. Or, at least fewer days per week than you currently eat animals.

If you accept the challenge, leave a comment below and let us know how it went.

Have a fantastic day, week, month, and year.
