Is it possible to have a completely healthy life? Can we have work, fitness, fresh food, academics, hobbies, family and friends all at the same time? Or can we only pick a few?
Well, I imagine that in this “healthy” society where you have it all, the friends and family would be involved in either (or all of) work, fresh food, academics, fitness and/or hobbies. Example, instead of hanging out with your friend/family in the living room watching tv or going to a cafe just chatting, you would have that chat as the soundtrack when going to the gym together, going to the groceries together, cooking together, taking a class together, etc. Shared experience is what makes for stronger relationships, not only shared interest or chemistry.
Eating a plant based diet on a budget may not be expensive, but it takes a lot a lot a lot of time! If you make everything from scratch and fresh, be prepared to be a slave in your own kitchen, all day, every day. It’s gotten to the point where I have two dish dry racks! You will most likely go to the grocery store once a day, and sometimes even twice.
Oh and I’m not even mentioning having an edible garden!
