Going Vegan

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I've been thinking about it for awhile now. I'm reading Alicia Silverstone's book 'The Kind Diet' and it's putting a lot of things into perspective for me. Before I commit myself to this completely, I'm going to finish the book, write out my plan, visit my doctor to make sure that's it's something good for me, and give it a go!

I'm kinda excited. I don't eat a lot of meat and dairy anyway, so it shouldn't be too difficult. Right?

    I went vegan a couple of months back, though I have relapsed a lot! My plan now is incorporate it gradually. I don't do red meat at all, so my main goal is cutting out all dairy, then phase out the tuna and the little bit of chicken that I eat.

Although I slipped back into old habits, I was very surprised at how easy it was. There are so many delicious vegan things to eat! (Not all of them healthy)! I highly recommend tempeh to use instead of chicken. And although I didn't lose weight, I did notice I was able to eat a lot more without gaining weight.

    I went vegetarian about 8 years ago and vegan (for good this time) one year ago. It's the best decision I've made; not only for my health but also it feels great living cruelty free.

There are tons of books and websites out there but if you have any questions please contact me.

Good luck!!!

I've been vegan since October (with a few slipups in between) and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I feel soooooooo much healthier when I'm sticking to a completely plant-based diet. I also lost some weight when I began. If you need any advice, ask away!
