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?
I haven’t made any major diet changes but I’m trying to cut out meat from my diet a little more xxx
I have made a major sort change but eating clean to loose weight 🤞
I have cut out the amount of meat that I eat and have a lot of vegetarian products in my diet now, I dont notice a huge change but I love the new variety that I have
I would say I am semi-vegetarian. I don’t eat a lot of meat. The only meat products I eat are beef mince and pork sausages. Most of the time I cook vegetarian though – I love making burritos with refried beans and lots of fresh veggies. Hummus is also really yummy with them.
That’s awesome! I have also made some adjustments to my eating habits. I can admit that I’ve been feeling much better – physically and mentally!
Amazing! I had been a vegan for a couple of weeks (a few months ago) and it was one of the hardest things ever! I’ve been a vegetarian since I was little so it’s not something I’ve implemented recently and I don’t find it difficult xx
I’m glad to hear you are feeling goof about the changes you are making. I do mostly vegeterian cooking (giving up eggs is too much for me right now) but I love the fact that my kids are growing up eating way healthier then I did at their age. I experimented a lot with making vegen “cheese” spreads and such and loved it, I also do a LOT of fruit shakes and smoothies that are vegan using cocnut cream insted of milk, i Use tofu for making vegan “fish cakes”, and a lot of asian type food with rice noodles tufo and vegtables. they are so easy and fast to make it’s fantastic.
im really considering trying to do dairy free as i feel like i may have an intolerence so i’d be interested to see
