Anja Perse was one winner of The Vegetarian Resource Group video contest for her video Biti zdrav / Being Healthy. She said:
I think my documentary describes my decision of becoming a vegan quite well, but I’ll put it in words anyway. I’m interested in vegetarianism, or more in veganism, because of the health issues I had in the past. I realized that food is really an important element when it comes to health and I noticed that this kind of food habit make me feel better. I feel healthier and lighter, my body shape is much better than before and also I feel sort of clean and light. And I don’t call veganism a diet, I call it a lifestyle, because diets are usually short-term food habits, but this is my decision for the long-term and probably for my whole life. I believe in it, I stand for it, I support it. So my main reason is health and saving animal lives sort of came with it, and I like it this way. So I’m not trying only with food, but with clothing and other things too. I like to live environmentally friendly.
