Many people give up certain life behaviors in observing Lent as a sign of sacrifice and to develop self-discipline.

This can mean refraining from specific foods or drinks (often animal products, alcohol, caffeinated drinks, or other favorites). If you are one of these people and have been successful with your withdrawal during this time, congratulations! You can feel very proud of yourself.

Hopefully, all the healthy changes you’ve made become routine. Change is difficult for those who have lived their entire lives eating animal products, but every little change we make has an impact on our bodies and, when you consider the fact that animal farming accelerates global warming, potentially the whole world.

Dr. Michael Greger, who specializes in clinical nutrition, has written a book called “How Not to Die”. It contains information on how the food we eat affects our health, both for better and for worse.
