I began to live a vegetarian lifestyle because of religious reasons, concern for animals and overall health..

(Philadelphia, Pa)

I became a vegetarian about five years ago; I was motivated by religious/spiritual reasons, overall health benefits and a concern for animals. Through vegetarianism I have found a new outlook on life, and I feel amazing. I also feel that I'm able to take in more information: I have a 3.917 college cumulative GPA, and I enjoy a wide range of intellectually stimulating material. To add to all of this positive information, I also have noticed an overall positive change on the outside as well: my eyes are clear and the color---a deeper blue; my skin is healthy. The health factor plays out in the creativity and endless options of vegetables and fruits, as well as grains, beans and nuts to choose from when crafting a meal. Instead eating just a customary meat-and-potatoes dinner, vegetarians become consciously attuned to all of the amazing and colorful options out there in terms of produce. I have discovered many fruits of nature that I may not have known about or ever would have thought to try had it not been for my current vegetarian lifestyle. Living on this planet as a vegetarian has allowed me to transport my creativity towards the foods that I eat; I have become more aware on many different levels; I have also been fortunate to experience life in a new way---thanks to this lifestyle.
