People love to think that going vegan is difficult and complicated and emotional and full of guilt ridden sacrifice! Lol Full of #calamity and therefore impossible to achieve! …Also, they think you eat epic amounts of plain salad and are protein defficient!
This was my meal at Panera!⏫
I can’t say that is the case for me…
I started out as a vegetarian since I found that animal products not only made my stomach upset, I found I simply love animals too much to eat them! With a little reading, I figured I’d transition to full vegan!
Now I’m far from perfect, sometimes I go places where there is normal cake, or someone who doesn’t know how to feed a vegan has kindly made me a meal that contains milk or cheese…I’ll eat it! And I won’t beat myself up either! I am doing the best I can!
And that is what I tell people when they ask me how to go vegan!…Do your best! It’s better to be bad at veganism than not to try at all!
The above burger is from South Street Burger! Yum! ⏫
And whatever you do, don’t eat basic salads or flavorless boiled to death vegetables! Spice it up! Make sure the food you eat is filling and tastes good! Almost any recipe can be adapted to a vegan version with a similar taste and texture! So don’t be afraid to experiment!
And no, I’m not protein defficient! I used to suffer from low blood pressure and low iron while on a meat-diet! Since going vegetarian/vegan my bloodwork comes back perfect and I feel amazing! I have so much more energy and never get the flu!
Try it! Life is an adventure to find out what works best for you! Veganism is it for me!
