Leafleting, Happiness, Fruits, and Vegetables

If you’re happy, and you know it…you probably eat lots of vegetables

Note: some vegans tend to see studies like this as being pro-vegan. But in reality, studies about fruit and vegetable consumption say nothing about the vegan diet. The vast majority of people could eat a lot more fruits and vegetables, eat more more animals than they do now (replacing big animals with chickens and fish), and be much healthier than they are now (including more exercise) -- and there would be much more suffering in the world. (And we've met plenty of vegans who eat very few fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.)

As we've long argued, real, lasting happiness can come from having a meaningful purpose in your life -- e.g., being a part of expanding the circle of justice, changing lives every day.

Real happiness for Kim, Rachel, Sarah, and Kim at Salem State.
