About Me

I have been an Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian for a few years and am considering making the switch to a full Vegan diet. I decided to become a vegetarian because I could no longer disassociate the meat on my plate from the loving, kind and peaceful animal it had once been. I have always been an animal lover, so I guess this was a natural progression. I am not a diet or nutrition expert by any means, I am just a woman on a mission to eat better, feel better and live better.

Day 7

Well, it's my last day of the Vegan Challenge, and I have mixed feelings about it.  While it's been a bit difficult to follow the strict diet every meal of every day, it's been a real eye opener for me.  I think going forward, I will choose 3 days a week to be completely vegan.  Then as I get a better handle on those days, I'll keep increasing it by one day a week until I'm eating a fully vegan diet every day.

I think this will make it easier to learn some go-to vegan meals and snack choices without the daunting task of checking every meal I eat.  I have certainly enjoyed the foods I have been eating this week, but there were too many moments when I would reach for something to eat or to cook with and suddenly realized I didn't have a vegan substitute for it.  This way, when that happens, I can just write it down and get it the next time I'm at the store, and I don't have to re-think my entire meal plan for that day.

For those of you that were following along this week, how are you feeling?  What problems or speed bumps did you encounter?
