What does vegan mean? How is it different from vegetarian? What is raw food? These are questions many people have.
Last weekend Nana Kwaku and I took a day hike in north Georgia at Tallulah Gorge State Park located in Tallulah Falls, Georgia. This is a beautiful site, well worth the 600 some stairs you have to walk down, and then back up. My thighs and calves are finally getting back to normal after 4 days! That'll get me to ramp up my game at the gym.
While we were there we recorded this quick video to talk about what is the difference between vegan, vegetarian, and raw food diets.
Eating a vegan vegetarian diet is important for the health of Afrikans (African Americans and other people of African descent). We as black people are suffering and dying from preventable and reversible diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, cancer, lupus, etc. Black vegetarians and vegans greatly reduce their incidence of disease and those that adopt a vegan diet can reverse and heal from disease that they already have.
Vegetarian is a term that means different things to different people. Some people even call themselves vegetarian even though they eat chicken or fish.
In this video I talk about the Diet Continuum and what the different vegetarian terms mean.
I would love to hear from you. What definitions have you heard?
