Vegan Haul | The Vegan Kind Jul/Aug

"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."

This is not a sponsored post.

You may have seen earlier in the week I posted an update on my transition to a plant based diet. I was going to include that update with this post but went a little more in depth than I had planned to and as such covered some things that some may find triggering, i.e. food and eating disorders. If you missed that post and want to read how things are going you may find it here. In it I talk about the fact I am expanding my diet and trying new things, particularly vegan friendly foods. So I figured what better way to try new things than a subscription box! So I signed up for The Vegan Kind

Everyday Ableism | #ShitAbledPeopleSay

Everyday Ableism #ShitAbledPeopleSay
I had another post in mind for the this edition of my Everyday Ableism series but sometimes something happens in the world of disability and gives you something else that must be addressed. A few weeks back now the hashtag #shitabledpeoplesay started popping up on my Twitter feed. I found myself nodding along in agreement to a lot of what I was seeing and soon began adding my own. I added one off the top of my head and it sort of snowballed from there. I didn't realise I had so much to contribute to the hashtag until they started pouring out of me. So I decided to compile them into a blog post. If you're disabled, I'm sure you can relate to some of these. If you're abled and you've ever found yourself uttering one or more of these in the past, I hope that you might think twice before doing it again in the future. If you're abled and you're already taking offence because you've never said a problematic thing in your life, then okay. I mean, even I've said ableist shit but perhaps you're the un-problematic unicorn. If that's the case, then congrats and this post isn't for you. Now we've gotten that out of the way, on with the show!
