In the pursuit of health and sustainability, I have adopted a diet that is a vegan one, or close to it. I cut out meat from my diet at around the age of 16-18. Within the past 6 months, I have stopped consuming wheat, followed by dairy, followed by eggs. Cutting wheat and dairy were motivated by health, but dairy was motivated more by the slaughter of calves. Eggs were motivated by the belief that food can be produced more sustainably from plants than from animals.
