Making a Change for the Better World

"Inspirational Vegetarian Story" Making a Change for the Better WorldBy: Julie Anne Ianello

I'd like to tell you about my family's story.

I've been vegetarian on and off for a few years.  Two years ago, during a trip on I-95, I saw a poultry truck where a chicken was half in and half out of one of the openings.  He was obviously packed so tightly in there that he tried to escape.  I've not eaten meat since.

I quoted Ellen DeGeneres to my family at dinner last Thanksgiving:

"I can't imagine that if you're putting something in your body that is filled with fear or anxiety or pain, that that isn't somehow going to be inside of you."

With that, they watched Earthlings.  They've not eaten meat since that day.

We've had 'very vegetarian' holidays ever since.

My husband's cholesterol level has gone from dangerous to safe.  He is no longer on medications.  His blood pressure is down too.  He had an accident at work a few months ago where part of his finger tip was cut off.  Needless to say, within a week it was healing.  He swears it's because of his diet.  Let me add, he's lost 50 pounds too!

I am in the menopausal stage of my life.  I've always heard of and witnessed women have extreme mood swings and weight gain during this part of their life.  I'm consistently happy and I'm losing weight.

This way of life has been a positive in our lives.  We're a family who's making a change for the better and hopefully for the world.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

PS. If every one of us inspired ONE person to go meatless imagine the difference we could make in ten years time. I am going to collect inspirational vegetarian/vegan stories to share with everyone. If you think your story will inspire others, please share with me by sending it to I will post your stories on this blog. I believe everyone has his/her own story, I think it must be great when we can share our stories and inspire others. Let’s make the world a better place. ~ Xiao Kang.
