I just wanted to come here and truly express myself about how much I love this lifestyle!
All my life I new one day I would be a vegetarian. I was always the kid that loved animals and didn't want to eat them, but never knew how to take the leap. Never in my dreams did I think I would be full blown vegan! But I am and I am loving it.
My one year anniversary is coming up on the 19th of this month. It has been a TOUGH year. The first week was hard. My body was not used to eating so much vegetables that I wasn't feel full enough. I ate a lot of bread and pasta. Then I learned more and more every week about new foods. I had no idea what a butternut squash was, or bok choy, quinoa, leeks, ect!
To this day I am not perfect. I still enjoy bread (vegan of course), I enjoy fake meat, and I enjoy fake cheese every now and then. But I think that is WAY better than how I was eating before.
All in all, I wanted to make it known I will never go back to eating meat or dairy again, EVER. I know this 100%. One day I will make the leap to superhero, I promise ;)
You go girl!!! Congrats on your one year anniversary! I hear you and respect you! I love being a vegan too and will NEVER ever eat any animal product ever again. I don't know if I'll ever be a diet superhero (I like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant too much) but in my mind I am a SUPERHERO!
Same here straycat, I LOVE eggplant and peppers way too much, but maybe one day I will atleast try. But I can't imagine life without roasted red pepper hommus...mmmmm =P But I can't agree more, in my eyes I'm a total superhero!
