Vegan...YES I DID...

Saturday, January 05, 2013

As a personal choice and body needing a break from all the meat that I have been eating for the past 20+ years. I decided to go vegan for the year. I cut out everything dairy, meat and even fish.
I have found some great options to replace my protein, and made some great recipes. It has been 9 days without meat, lost 5lbs! I replaced some protein by low calorie, non-dairy protein powders and I feel so much better!
I think that I will go back to meat someday, but I feel way better and have so much more energy without meat!
We shall see how things go in the next 6 months to see if I can keep it going.

    I used to be vegan, and then I lapsed back into vegetarianism for 6 years, and I just decided to go vegan again this week. I love cheese, so for me, that's the hardest - milk and eggs are no biggie for me - but I've been doing a lot of reading about the effects of dairy on cancer, and as I get older, I want to have the strongest immune system possible. :)

    Good luck with your vegan year!

    I could never do it but I admire you for making that choice. Good luck! emoticon

    I've always liked the theory of being vegetarian, and happily eat some meals that way ... but, I just love meat. Sigh

    Congrats! That's a great start. I've tried off and on to eat vegetarian and have never lasted longer than three months but the idea of it is so tempting that I keep coming back to it.
