Meet Karima Sofia Bettaz :)
Where are you from?
Please introduce yourself in 2-5 sentences.
Hi - Karima here 👋🏼 I’m a 25 years old Multimedia Design student from Copenhagen!
Since when are you vegan / plant-based?
What made you decide you to make the switch?
I watched Cowspiracy and the day after I switched to a completely vegan diet and never looked back!
What aliment/product do you miss the most?
Marabou milk chocolate, haha.
What is your favorite meal?
Pizza and sushi.
What would be your number one tip for someone willing to become vegan / plant-based?
Find documentaries, people, and so on, who inspires you! For me watching documentaries like ‘Cowspiracy’ and ‘What The Health’ made the switch really simple and easy. It wasn’t about me and my taste buds anymore but the planet, the environment, the animals, and even my own health. I love finding vegan recipes and experimenting in the kitchen! Trust me when I say that everything you eat that is non-vegan can be made in a vegan version! It’s easy because I don’t feel like I’m missing out. So make sure you’re not limiting yourself to only plain salads and bread.
And of course... Where do you get your protein?
Oh, this question... This question you’ll get a lot, haha. I’ll quote what James Loomis points out in The Game Changers, “All that protein that you get when you eat a steak or a hamburger, where did it come from? It came from the plants that the cow ate.” In fact, all protein originates from plants, which also contain all nine essential amino acids we have to get from food.
Anything else you wanna share with us? :)
Going vegan is the best decision I’ve ever made. When you think about it... Tt’s crazy how we’ve objectified some animals into our favorite foods, while some are considered our loving pets. All lives matter. Being vegan has made me become a better person and a more humane person. The great thing about a plant-based lifestyle is that there’s a reason for everyone to try it. Whether your main goal is to help the environment, the animals, or your health - there’s a darn good reason to try and succeed at a plant-based lifestyle 💚 Going vegan is not the most we can do, it’s the least we can do.
Thank you for reading!
