I was invited to my first Raw Vegan Dinner event by my friend, Cheryl. It was heartwarming to meet so many compassionate people (I’m guessing around 50, including men, women and children). The table was a delectable sight of colours, and looked as delicious as it tasted!
Glory stood out from the crowd, with her beautiful brown eyes and loving smile. A fashionable woman UNDER 40. She is a wonderful example of a healthy, lovely lady and listening to her story; I just had to take some fashion pictures of her, and share her story.
Glory wore basic black which looked classy with her long, dark hair, tied back in a casual, low ponytail. A leopard print belt, fashion jewellery and tall musketeer boots completed the outfit.
“I have been a vegan girl for almost 18 years now, and this lifestyle keeps blessing me over and over again. My health, my outlook on life, my relationships are so vibrant due to this simple, loving choice of Veganism. My health goal is to commit myself to a 100% raw vegan diet and compete in a fitness competition, and to expose to the fitness world the myth that animal protein gives you strength and muscle.
I believe that choosing a vegan lifestyle helps clean not only your body of negativity but also your thoughts. Courage and love enter your mind instead of doubt and fear. I have been blessed with 3 amazing, healthy children; Dario 8, Gabriel 4 and Zaria 3. I was able to a have home births for all of them, each under 3 hours of labour. Gabriel was born still in “the sac” so no need to break any women’s water (yes he came out in a bubble of water) and Zaria was birthed with me standing on my own two feet, when her head came out I slightly turned her around and she opened her eyes and smiled at me with the rest of her body still inside of me.
Every women deserves to feel this kind of ecstasy, it’s empowering and loving and in turn the mother will pass these feelings on to her children, so that we all will have a brighter future. I have and will continue to choose Pro-Life, Pro-Love and Pro-Nature, my blessings are endless and I can truly say it all started with a high Raw Organic Vegan Diet.”
