I decided to start a new challenge for myself. I have already begun the read 30 books this year challenge and I am about to finish my 10th book in two months so if I keep this up, I will double my goal for the year. Therefore, I thought it only fitting that I see if I can do another challenge; one that I never thought I would be doing in my entire life. I want to go vegan for one month or maybe even more if I like it.
I am not doing this because I just watched Food Inc. I am not doing this because I don't believe in eating animals. I am not doing this because it is trendy. I am doing this because I simply just want to see if I can. I want to actually feel the difference in my body. I want to know what it will feel like to eat incredibly healthy and fresh food for a month and see if it gives me more energy or makes me feel better about my body. I want to see if my cholestrol can go down.
I love the idea of actually looking at the ingredients in food and seeing what is actually going in my mouth. I love the idea of buying fresh vegetables and going outside my comfort zone to make new foods.
Will I miss dairy? Yes. Will I miss chicken? yes. Will I miss meat? Not as much. Will I finally learn to eat kale, tomatos and portabello mushrooms? Well, I guess we have to see what happens this month.
So far, so good. I've been a vegan for 3 hours.
