Vegan or Veggie

After a week of hearing lectures and seeing photos plus looking at menus describing what my dinner choices were.  I decided to eat the same way I have been and counting my blessings that my way is working well for me.    Not one speaker could give me a handwritten signed guarantee that their way was the only way to live life healthier and longer.

Some of the speakers were young enough to be my children and really don’t have the full scoop on ‘what makes up being healthy.”   Just a college degree and some cooking classes with natural organic food doesn’t make it gospel truth in my opinion.

A handful of so-called healthy vegans (giving me the evil eye) when they spotted my spinach salad along side a slice of delicious Italian pizza looked more like they were wishing they were me.  How silly to deprive one’s self and besides they didn’t look healthy without their protein.

I don’t think  I could survive without my Greek yogurt and for the past 60 years I have eaten a cup of yogurt a day. In my opinion I would say pretty good for a senior with awesome cholesterol numbers and perfect weight and waistline.   So I applaud the Holistic Holiday for their wonderful presentation, little gifts and speakers and for giving me a week of fun sun and valuable information.  But, Ms Millie will stick to her fish-veggies-yogurt meal plan.  Here’s to my next 24 years!!!!
