Jordan Younger, ‘The Blonde Vegan’, has said adios to the vegan menu and has broaden her entree selections to include yummy flesh. Glad to see you come to your senses Jordan. Maybe we can coax her into hunting so she can be certain that her personal food is low fat, high protein, free range yumminess. I think I’ll send her a copy of my new book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation. See below via World Lifestyle:
You may know her from social media where she became famous for her sunny Instagram photos, her unique blend of being a California girl while living in New York, but mostly people know her from her recipes and lifestyle posts on her vegan blog. And yet today she did the unthinkable and posted a blog called “Why I’m Transitioning Away from Veganism…” And in it she pretty much became my hero.
“In the last few weeks it’s become clear to me how silly it is that I am so afraid to share this on the blog and in my life,”she begins. She then describes how when she started the blog over a year ago, she identified as a plant-based vegan — plain and simple. She loved how it solved her stomach aches, how she felt fueled and nourished, and how her diet was organic and completely cruelty-free.
But as time went on things changed — her body changed.
“I longed to try new things that looked and sounded good to me, but ethically I couldn’t do it. I had done so much research, read so many books, watched so many documentaries and personally connected with so many vegans and those against eating animal protein, and I believed wholeheartedly in the lifestyle. I felt that I knew better than to eat animal protein. I was educated, I had will power, and I loved being vegan.
That’s what I kept telling myself. And most days, I believed it. Other days, I knew that I was going to have to eat a bowl of veggies the size of a monster truck to fill me up.”
“So, long story short, I am reevaluating my diet. I’m saying goodbye to the labels. I’ve tried organic farm fresh eggs and wild fish from the local farmer’s market. I had some sashimi from an organic restaurant that I very much trust. All in the last couple of weeks. This is terrifying for me and extremely out of my comfort zone after living under the vegan umbrella for so long, but I’m doing it for my physical and mental health.”
