Would you ever give up a certain type of food? Well, sophomore Kelsey Smoot gave up meat five years ago.

“I have eaten meat before but I just can’t stand it anymore,” Smoot said. Having a mother and sister who is also vegan it’s easier for the change.

Many adults, let alone kids, would never even think twice about what they eat and what goes into their bodies. Smoot has never been fond of the idea of meat.

“I don’t think I will ever eat meat because now I look at it as an animal, or rotten food,” Smoot said. Being vegan comes with great health benefits like acne clearing up and feeling healthier, but also has its downsides like having to take B12 supplements which is found in meat and taken out of plants before they go to the store. The change for this lifestyle was hard at first but after a while was natural to do. The best thing about this type of lifestyle is the food.

“I eat mainly fruits and vegetables, but we also make pasta with spinach and tomatoes and my favorite vegan pizza with olives, spinach, vegan cheese and veggie crust,” Smoot.

The food is just like ours, just a little different and with healthier options.

“I think it’s cool and interesting that she has lived years like this and all the food she has eaten,” sophomore Kaylee Williams said. Whether it be cauliflower rice or pizza, there is always good food in this lifestyle.
