Vegan (mostly raw) for spiritual and moral reasons. Firstly, I believe that food is a spiritual nourishment, and that non-human-animals, and their souls are to be respected not only by stopping using them as food, but also by working for a better Planet, comfortable also for to them. Committed pacifist and M. K. Gandhi’s great admirer, I love music, to cook & prepare, to travel, to read, to have conversations and to listen.
Additional motivations are discussed by Mark Rowlands, and detailed in his superb “The Philosopher and the Wolf: Lessons from the Wild on Love, Death, and Happiness” . As to sustainability and health, after watching “A delicate balance” by Aaron Scheibner (Phoenix Films), and reading "The China study" by T. Colin Campbell, & Thomas M. Campbell II, there’s very little to add.
As far as dietetics is concerned, “The 80/10/10 diet” by Douglas N. Graham, and “Becoming Raw: The Essential Guide to Raw Vegan Diets” by Brenda Davis, Vesanto Melina and Rynn Berry, have been great sources of inspiration.
