Hey there Teacups, I hope you’ve all had a great week and you’re looking forward to the weekend ahead. For today’s post I’m going to be stepping away from my normal Green Living Guide posts to talk to you guys about a exciting journey I began a few months ago.
So you’re probably wonder what this journey is all about and why I’m so excited about it!….. Since march this year I finally made the decision to transition myself into a fully vegan diet/lifestyle. This is something I’ve always wanted to do,and honestly I’m fed up of holding myself back for incredibly stupid reasons.
So for the last few months I’ve been taking baby steps towards becoming vegan, I’ve had to take the journey very slowly as my body doesn’t agree with quite a few things. I’m incredibly allergic to mushrooms which is has been my biggest holdback as a vegetarian let alone being vegan. So while it’s going to be very helpful for me I’m so determined to move forward.
One thing that has helped me a lot is the fact that I cut out cows milk from my diet a long time ago. It always left me feeling horrible and left a bad taste in my mouth and the uk’s dairy industry is incredibly cruel. So I just took the jump and cut it out of my diet completely, and it one of the best decisions I’ve made.
So what have I been doing to take myself forward on this journey :
– I’ve Cut out Cows Milk.
– I’ve been working on cutting out dairy chocolate ( I actually prefer dairy free).
– I’ve been working on eating more vegetables.
– When eating out at restaurants ive been ordering the vegan option (if there is one).
– I’ve been trying to make sure I only eat free from baked goods.
– Ive been following more vegan based companies so I can learn about new products.
– I took the 30 day vegan challenge not to long ago.
I’m more than sure that I could be doing a lot more so if any of you are vegan / are on the way to becoming vegan please leave me some tips in the comments. They will help so much more than you think.
If you have any questions at all, remember to stick them in the comments and I’ll answer them as soon as I can.
So wish me luck on my journey hopefully it will be a quick one!
Anyway I’ll stop rambling now – Speak to you all again soon, have an amazing weekend – Kimberley 💖🍵
