My 30 days of Being a Vegan

on June 5, 2013

In a previous post I had mentioned that I was going vegan for 30 days. I wanted to try it, see how I would feel and what the difference in my life would be. Well I did it. 30 days are up and here’s what I think:

I love it!   I plan on continuing this way of eating for myself. I feel great and have found so many different ways to prepare food. I feel full but have noticed that I never get that painfully full feeling I had when I ate meat. My husband (who also did it with me) has decided to be a vegetarian vs a vegan. Since I do all the cooking and shopping though, we rarely have other things in the house, but when we go out he likes to get a little bit of the cheese he’s been missing.

I started doing it because of the research I was doing on optimal diets for health. After watching the movie Forks over Knives I realized the science behind why it isn’t necessary to eat meat. I also watched Food Inc and while I am not driven by the humane side of it, it is a small portion of my decision.  

Researching food and what my family puts into their mouth is a big part of how I spend my time. It effects our lives so much I can’t help but gain all the knowledge I can. I am currently reading a book called Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss, that I plan on reviewing for you (my readers) when I am finished and will continue to share my food knowledge with you. I will soon have my facebook page up and running for you to be able to follow for more info and articles on this topic. 

I am curious about what shapes your food decisions in your house, I would love to hear about them and any book or movie recommendations you might have, thanks!
