Healthy Food Choices Change Lives

     While some students can easily find the perfectly cooked 100% beef burger at fast food restaurants, others have to go on a search to find a meatless option. As young adults hope to make healthy eating choices, they have adapted to a diet that is best for them. 

   “[I’ve been vegan] my whole life,” freshman Abigail Stuba said.

   Vegans don’t think meat is worth eating and some believe a positive mentality comes with veganism.

   “I’ve heard you are happier and more positive,” Stuba said. “You’re open for more opinions,”

      Though that lifestyle seems suitable for others, sophomore Carson Denbina notices the positive repercussions of maintaining a balance of meat and carbs in his diet.

   “I eat lots of carbs,” Denbina said. “You’ll feel better. You’ll have more energy typically.”

    Even though many vegans would prefer the benefits of tofu over a beautifully cooked steak, meat-eaters think chicken can be healthy.

    “[Baked chicken] does not have the fats that is in fried chicken,” Denbina said.

     Though Denbina and Stuba have separate views of what the healthiest choices are, it remains clear that, despite some assumptions, both veganism and non-veganism pose potential benefits.

   “You have to cut that out [junk food],” Denbina said.
