I previously mentioned I had gone dairy free due to a slight intolerance and I wanted to see how it would effect me. I got on so well that I decided I wanted to give up meat too, I also gave up eggs and essentially became vegan.
I have been eating vegan for a couple of weeks now and even though it was a struggle at first, I am really glad I have made this decision.
I’m not going to go into the ins and outs about why I think this is healthy and what my research has told me. I will not preach my views about animals and the dairy industry on to anyone but I will be sharing a lot more food ideas with you.
Growing up I lived on chicken nuggets, chips and pizza. I was so fussy! My whole family have been worried about what will I eat if I am eating a vegan diet, but actually, this has inspired me to try new foods and has forced me in a way to eat more fruit and veg.
I feel healthy and I feel happier than I have in a long time. Everyone’s body reacts differently to certain foods and I knew dairy wasn’t good for mine.
I have invested in a couple of cooking books and have a new found love for hummus.
I will still be sharing non vegan food on here for example in my gift guides as no one else in my family is vegan and I don’t want to restrict my reviews.
I am not declaring myself as completely vegan and cruelty free as for now I am just sticking to the vegan way of eating but as I use up old toiletries and things I will be trying to replace them with more cruelty free brands.
If any of you are vegetarian or vegan please share your favourite meals with me as I need veginspo!
Have any of you made a big diet change?
