Episode 11: Pat McAuley & Livin' Life

 

"For me, it's about living life.  It's about being in control of your own destiny, of your own health, and being able to enjoy life and the ones you love, and being there for them."

-Pat McAuley

On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with me, myself, and I. This being episode 11, which was my number in sports and somewhat of a lucky number to me, I thought it would be cool to tell my own story and how I ended up adopting a plant based lifestyle and everything I have learned since doing so. I talk about a plant based lifestyle from a health standpoint, an environmental standpoint, and a compassion standpoint. I discuss why eating meat and dairy is the single greatest threat to your health and how genetics are not to blame for your health issues. I talk about how we are all in full control over our health, and how feeling your best, dodging disease, living long, and being around for the ones you love is as simple as eating a whole foods plant based diet, moving a little each day, breathing, and loving. It's really that simple. My goal of this episode is to show you that vegans are not crazy animal loving hipsters, they're actually just regular people who became aware of the facts and made a logical decision to take their health into their own hands and stop living a life of harming others.
