The changes I have noticed in my body since going vegan. Ahh, where do I begin?

As I have mentioned before on my blog, I didn’t just wake up one morning and decide to go vegan, I went vegetarian first. After trying to avoid eating meat for a couple of months, I decided to go officially vegetarian at the end of June in 2016. So, at that time I was still eating ice cream, eggs and cheese. But, within those first couple of months being vegetarian I began to drop these foods out of my diet and would only eat them when there were no other options (that I was aware of at the time) like at restaurants and sorts. When I avoided these foods and then ate them after several weeks of not having them I noticed changes in my bodies digestion. I would get horrible stomach aches. So, I finally put two and two together and realized that the one night stands with dairy products needed to end. And let me tell you my body has thanked me.

Imperfection With My Vegan Diet

IMG_4713Imperfection. My vegan diet is one big imperfection.

Recently, I noticed that I don’t eat the most nutrient rich meals. This realization came about when I went to my boyfriend’s house and his mom asked me how I was doing with my “vegan diet.” As an immediate response, I said that it’s been going well and that I feel really good. She then asked what I like to eat. And I hesitated. Continue reading “Imperfection With My Vegan Diet”

Do you think this calf wanted to be separated from its mother?

When I first told two of my friends this past summer that I was a vegetarian but would soon be transitioning to veganism, I got the response that probably every vegan has got ins some form of another. One of my friends looked at me and said “Don’t go vegan, vegans are so annoying.” After she said this I wasn’t mad because I knew that she only knows one side of vegans, the side that people try to criticize and make jokes about. Trying to brush her comment off I responded by saying, “They’re not annoying they are passionate.” Continue reading “Single Story About Veganism”
