Did you know one of the best things to eat for breakfast is fruit?
This bowl right here boosted my energy levels in the afternoon, which is breakfast time. Just looking at it again is giving me extra life force lmao.
How was this created?
- 3 bananas (sliced)
- 12 strawberries (sliced)
Simple and filling to keep creating and manifesting throughout the day.
What vegan meal did you have for breakfast?
Does being vegan give you super powers?
If you ever seen the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs The World then you’re aware how special you are with the vegan gifts you’ve acquired. However, you should watch out because it doesn’t mean that you’re better than most people lol. Click here to understand the reference and continue to read on.
Believe me; I understand the vegan pride that comes with the lifestyle because you really are making an impact with your choice. Like most groups, you’ll always have people that take the lifestyle too far and show a side to the humanity that makes the vegan tribe get stereotyped and viewed as crazy. Fuck them. They’re not perfect so they have no right to judge, however there are still times where your ego needs to get checked before you wreck yourself in some form.
The first way to check your vegan ego is to realize not everyone is at the same level as you on your journey. They don’t understand or care to the level as the vegan community so let them figure out the ills of their actions like most of us have. I know what it’s like to be around people that eat flesh like it’s nothing and me acting all righteous like eating vegan is superior. Yes, in the beginning stages I may have been a bit of a vegan egotistic dude but the passion was ignorantly charged at that point. It’s like you really want to assist in eliminating as much animal cruelty as possible but your passion can sometimes get the best of you. Check your ego by thinking how your actions can impact the situation in a negative way, then learn how to ask the right questions to make people think. No one likes people talking at them.
The second way to check your vegan ego is by not judging other vegans. You’d be surprised how some people with the lifestyle ridicule other vegans because of wearing a leather belt, leather shoes, down winter coat, or etc. Not everyone has the financial means to buy new vegan apparel and have to settle with what they had beforehand. No one is perfect and others with the vegan lifestyle. You’d be surprised of the occasions on certain vegan facebook groups how bashing gets started and elevate. For those that is judging out there, remember to treat others how you want to be treated and imagine how you’d feel if someone did the same to you.
The third way to check your vegan ego is breathe in and out calmly when another pokes fun at the vegan way of living. People respond differently in certain situations, however if you’re the type of herbivore that’s set in their plant based ways and would negatively respond to the jerk, then ego has taken over. I get it, you’re strong in your beliefs and saving innocent sentient beings but your negativity won’t solve much except your satisfaction. You ever heard of the saying “kill them with kindness”? That is how you can tastefully get your point across. Easier said than done, however you’re greater than your ego so no need to let it control you.
The fourth way to check ego yourself is reminder that being vegan is one aspect to YOU. Yes, most parts of your life are most likely linked to the vegan lifestyle. It’s also healthy to be strong in your conviction because it is a passion that most of us have within and without. Whether other people know it or not is not their business, unless they are cooking for you and should know ASAP what you can and cannot eat or what to give you as far as gifts. It’s probably a slap in the face if someone buys you a leather jacket while knowing your ethics, which gives an opportunity for the vegan ego to come out. What would you do in this situation? You can check your ego by accepting the situation for what it is and giving or donating it to another because of your beliefs. If the person asks in the future why you haven’t worn it, then you could inform them why you can’t. This is one of many examples of how you can go about this situation; however it’s your free will that decides how to check your ego in the situation. You’re more than a title.
You got the vegan juice homie. What you do with it is up to you. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Eat fruits though
Don’t you love running full speed to the toilet when your body is releasing the unnecessary from the system when eating raw vegan? I do, because it makes great cardio in the end. All jokes aside, was eating fruits and herbs only for a few days recently and was shocked how frequent the peeing was at the time.
You ever noticed that happening to you?
You start a detox or cleansing regimen and next thing you know at some point a lot of fluid seems to come out for a period of time. It makes great for an alarm clock when you’re in deep sleep then keep waking up because nature calls. We should rejoice when things like this occurs because our body is signaling us that a bit of the toxins we had from introducing our body is getting eliminated. How I handle this is knowing in advance to cleanse during the days I know I don’t have to go out far because sometimes it can be a hassle frequenting the toilet to do number one or two.
Ever noticed your skin breaking out while you cleanse?
It’s funny, when a brotha is holistically eating vegan then the skin is clear. Soon as I start going raw, it’s like whatever toxins that’s been creeping in the body gets forced out via the skin. From my understanding, I believe what’s happening is because the body is healing at a fast regenerating state, some parts of the body, ie the skin, will use that part of the body as a process for elimination. No need to freak out if it’s happening to you. There’s a term known as the healing crisis, which in simpler terms means things get worse before they get better. Because I’m a dude, a bit of pimples is not that big of a deal. However, for the females out there that really want to clear up their situation may seek clay to accelerate the healing of the skin. Moroccan red clay may work wonders for your face and also the hair/scalp. Research it :0
Did you start to feel fatigue out of nowhere?
It’s so weird. One minute you’re all energized feeling like a superhero, then you start feeling tired and want to sleep at random times of the day. Rejoice! When you rest, the body seems to repair and heal, right? It’s like a sign from the divine that our cleansing period from eating raw appears to require rest in order to regenerate. I used to wonder why that happened until did a few research on the “oracle” of knowledge from google. We flush out all the toxins at a fast rate with raw natural foods, so it make sense the overworking of our internal energy will make us require rest to recuperate from within. I handle this part of cleansing by taking short naps if possible if I’m working from home. If out, then would have to keep on moving on until getting back home at some point. How do you handle this cleansing symptom?
Ever noticed body aches out while you cleanse?
Lol, this is how you know the part that’s aching insides is acid. Healing sometimes can be a pain in the neck. The last time I was raw vegan, I had a neck ache that took a while to normalize. At first, figured the way I slept was wrong like most people lol. However, it dawned on me how it randomly occurred earlier in the day after waking up perfectly fine. Sometimes we deserve the pain we get when violating our bodies from within. How I handle the ache is praying to the divine is I don’t turn my neck the wrong way for excruciating pain. You know that feeling, don’t you? LOL.
What about experiencing cravings as a symptom?
You never miss a good tasting thing until it leaves you. Then again, when it comes to food it’s the variety we shouldn’t eat like starch, fried foods, and/or cooked food in general. Am I the only one that fantasizes about vegan mac & cheese, chickn, french fries, quinoa, cashew cheese cake, and etc. when fully raw? It’s like the body seriously goes into this mode of seeking food it’s used to having on a regular and sparks an impulse to crave foods we are purposely not consuming for the time being. This is where discipline comes into play and why it’s important. How I handle the cravings are remembering what’s more important for the body as a whole. It’s all free will at the end of the day. Self-control should be your goal when the cravings come up.
As weird as this may sound, we should be grateful and happy for the symptoms we get from cleansing because it may be a sign of healing 😉 Isn’t that part of why we detox or cleanse anyway?
