I’ve decided to start a transition to becoming vegan. It’s for health reasons. I’ve noticed the last couple of years that my body has changed drastically. My energy is low, I’m out of shape & when I eat certain things it just doesn’t agree with me. I started to notice older family members around me start to have to go to the doctors multiple times a week and take multiple medications a day. I don’t want that to be me. I’m almost 30! I’m already lactose intolerant, me and dairy just do not get along.
I am not forcing Veganism on anyone not even my children until they’re ready. But they have expressed interest with some hesitation. I agreed to them trying two vegan meals a week if they wanted to.
I plan on giving myself 30 days to transition completely and documenting everything on one of the many social media platforms. Maybe Snapchat or possibly YouTube, who knows. I am starting with cutting out red meat, chicken and any small amounts of dairy I consume. So I would only consume fish until I transition completely off of that as well.
I’m 100% sure the only way I’m going to survive this is to plan out my meals and stick to them. A lot more cooking will have to be done but I think that is what I’m most excited about. trying new things and being creative. Thank god for YouTube and Pinterest!
Anything worth doing is not going to be easy. I am comparing this to a detox. And weening the body off of anything is going to be trying at times but I am excited! This will be a healing experience, taking everything toxic out of my body and starting fresh.
If you are vegan or interested in taking the journey lets connect so that we can do it together! As I take this journey be sure to follow #tajaeatsvegan on Instagram and Twitter which should be poppin’ in the next couple weeks.
*FYI- Me going vegan does not mean I will bash people that eat meat. I will not judge and I will not push those that do to join my journey. But If you are interested in doing a 30 day challenge or anything regarding a journey to veganism let me know I would love to follow you!
