Try Something New

on April 19, 2013

Since my oldest son was born (he is now 2 1/2)  I have really focused on what I feed my family. It has led me to eating healthier and as a side benefit lose weight as well. For me the decision to focus on healthy eating doesn’t come from the losing weight perspective. I want to feel healthy. This researching has led me to a clean eating diet up until now. I have decided to make a change, a rather drastic change to be honest. I am now researching and preparing to become vegan for a month, starting May 3rd. Many of my friends are vegan and recently my sister has made the decision to as well. After watching a food documentary called Forks and Knives, I decided to give it a try. I am testing out a few recipes and substitutes before May and I also plan to watch Food Inc as well. I don’t eat processed foods nor do I eat fast food, but I am also looking to cut refined sugars (I say this as I finish off a chocolate bar…have to enjoy it while I can right?).  Am I crazy?! Ok maybe a little but I would rather be glad I tried it then regret not doing it.  I will keep you updated on my change and how it goes over with my family.  My husband is about 80% on board as long as I make the food “taste good”!

What about you, what new things are you doing to improve your life? I love to try new things and expand my world. I would love to hear from you on what you are doing now or what change you have made in your life that has drastically changed you for the better!
