I'm Going Vegan!? | 30 Day Vegan Challenge

by - March 01, 2017

You heard it here first. Because, really I'm not sure where else you would hear it.

A few years ago I made a new friend who happened to be vegan. She was great, she introduced me to the world of veganism, and what it would be like if I too, lived a vegan lifestyle. So after not a lot of thought I threw caution to the wind and quit animal products cold turkey ( hah!). It was wonderful, I learned a lot of fantastic new vegan recipes, and we cooked together a lot, went out to fun vegan restaurants in our city, and I found it incredibly easy to transition when I had a support system that was also vegan. And my body was thanking me for it! I had lost some weight, my skin had never looked better, and I felt good inside and out. However then she moved away for school, and I was left on my own and unfortunately became a really bad vegan. For 6 months I had been eating so many greens, and beans and lentils and all of these delicious nutritious meals! And then it became a chore, and I hated cooking so I ate potatoes and pasta for every meal and all that energy and all the benefits I was getting before, completely disappeared. So after another 6 months of that, I ultimately decided to go back to eating meat, and dairy. And have been doing so for the last few years. However, over the past couple of months, the vegan lifestyle has been on my mind a lot. I see so many blog posts and videos from people that I follow talking about how they've made the switch to veganism and how much they are liking it and I really wanted to try it out again.
So I decided to try it out, short term. I decided to do a 30 day vegan challenge, which may or may not be an actual thing, or it could just be something I made up in my head as an actual challenge. Either way, I'm gonna do it.  Mostly because I want to reap the benefits that I was getting the first time I went vegan, again. I want the high energy, I don't want to feel sluggish everyday, I want to clear my skin up and maybe even lose a little weight. I am not committing to being vegan forever, you guys know me I'm terrible with commitment, but I am promising that I am going to give the next 30 days everything I've got! I'm going to be adventurous in the kitchen, and try things I've never made before, and hopefully never feel deprived of food. I don't know that I'm necessarily going to go vegan full time after this, but I'm going to take it one day (or one month) at a time.
And obviously since I share everything I do with you guys, I'm going to take you along for the journey so look out for some recipe, what I eat in a day, and update posts coming your way this month!

Much love,
Spense xx
