High school is long over and done with for me. It was a time of growth and change. In grade 12, I made an educated decision to become vegan. I read books, watched the movie “Forks Over Knives”, and searched out more information on making the change. First I started out vegetarian, but eventually made my way to a vegan diet.
Since entering post secondary, the diet was much more difficult to maintain. With the many tempting food options in residence, and hardly anything vegan, I caved in. I even ended up eating fish and occasionally meat (chicken).
I look where I am now and am not satisfied. I originally made the change to a vegan diet for multiple reasons – health, treatment of animals, etc.
However, there’s no time for change like the present, right? So, I have decided to go back to a vegan diet. It’s going to be a bit of a change again. I don’t eat much dairy anyways, but the little I did eat, I’ll be cutting out. I’ll also be removing fish and eggs from my diet.
I know it will be a little work, but in the end it’s worth it. I feel better eating vegan. So here’s to starting over!
For my breakfast this morning I made an orange slushy and had some leftover pesto pasta! This time I’m more determined to keep up this choice. I also dowbloaded the Yummly app on my phone and subscribed to the Vegan Society emails to help me on my journey. Looks like I’m starting off on the right track!
