The Purpose of Sister Vegetarian

Sister Vegetarian is a blog of encouragement for sisters to take back our health. What encouraged me to start Sister Vegetarian is from my own experience of taking back my health which can be read under "Don't Believe the Hype;" and, listening to our African American sisters say that they do not eat healthy because eating healthy means buying expensive organic foods. I say to you. Don't believe the hype, and the myth. Eating healthy is inexpensive on our purses, and in the long run inexpensive on medical bills. You can eat healthy without buying loads of organic foods by just starting in your local grocery store produce department and visiting your local farmer's market. I became a vegetarian for life after flip flopping for years between vegetarianism and eating meat. It was when I had a health scare that my body decided to fight back; and, I decided to take control and take back my health.

Sister Vegetarian is not for the seasoned vegetarian who has years of experience in living the vegetarian lifestyle, although you will find this blog informative and the recipes rocking! Sister Vegetarian is reaching out to my sisters who want to and need to "take back your health." Sister Veg is reaching out to my sisters who need encouragement when you are the only one in the home, or work that eats vegetarian. Sister Veg is reaching out to my sisters who need a starting place in dropping some pounds and maintaining a healthy weight and healthy eating lifestyle, but do not want to do the fad diets. Sister Veg is reaching out to my sisters with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and so many other ailments. A vegetarian lifestyle is not a cure all, but it can be a help all. A vegetarian lifestyle may not get rid of your high blood pressure, but it can lower your high blood pressure. A vegetarian lifestyle cannot dispose of cancer, but there are studies that a vegetarian lifestyle can give you energy for those with cancer. A vegetarian lifestyle cannot cure your diabetes, but it can help regulate your diabetes and insulin shots. Studies have shown that a vegetarian lifestyle can add years to your life; make your body more active; make you look young (watch out botox users!); and, in the words of Stephanie Mills, you will be singing “I feel good all over!”

Please click on the side right bar to access Sister Vegetarian's categories: Recipes and Pantry Essentials; Mind, Body, & Spirit; Sister Green; and, this Home page that will feature words of thoughts and stories of encouragement. And, for those asking, yes the meal pictures featured with the Sister Vegetrian Avatar are meals I have cooked, and will share with you :)

May Sister Vegetarian find you in good health, peace, and joy as you enjoy the fruits of this labor of love.

Peace my sisters~ Sister Vegetarian
