Yes, you don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to eat nutritious vegan or mostly vegan and/or meatless meals. This is my high protein vegan leftovers mixture with vegan Parmesan cheese! My fuel for bridge inspections, rock climbing and dancing.
The high protein vegan leftovers mixture was curry lentils with spinach and other vegetables, a separate Mexican pinto beans dish, tofu ranchero, and right rice, all mixed together and heated in the microwave!
Above photo shows it with the Whole Foods vegan Parmesan sprinkled on top. Not shown, I also added Manitoba hemp seeds. Yay!
Concluding with some photos from my bridge inspection. I work a very difficult job, and I’ve been following a mostly vegan diet for about 20 years. Clearly my diet is not holding me back.
Keep in mind, I’m not saying that everybody can be consuming as little animal product as I can, because I don’t know other people’s situations.
However, I do like to show that it certainly is possible to be healthy and successful without relying on animal products. Maybe a mostly vegan diet isn’t advisable for you, specifically (due to financial constraints, disabilities, food, allergies, medical issues, convenience and time constraints, other factors, etc.) but it’s possible for a human being in general. I say this because there exist plenty of people like me who are thriving without relying on animal products.
On the other hand, of course, a person can be super healthy, eating a diet that includes meat and/or or dairy products and eggs at every meal. A person doesn’t need to be meatless, vegetarian, vegan, Veganish, or any of that to be perfectly healthy and successful in life.
Nonetheless, for human beings without too many road blocks and obstacles, a mostly vegan diet is possible, and people can be thriving and healthy … as long as they cover all the bases, nutritionally.
