I am noting my 6-month "anniversary" to the day I became fully vegan. I have been vegetarian for years and I remember sitting there with my last non-vegan meal (a salad with feta cheese on it) and saying, "This is it. No more animals products. Period. I don't believe in it." Time flew since then. It's like second nature to me now, and I'm really going more in the direction of superhero these days. I try to avoid most processed foods and cook my own meals. I have also been changing all my household & beauty products the more natural options. I feels great knowing I'm not putting a bunch of junk on & in my body!! My skin has a nice glow to it. It did break out when I was in the process of trying different skin care products but now I'm using an awesome organic, vegan line and my face looks super healthy. I also have much more mental clarity. I think that's one of the biggest changes for me. My mind is more sharp & I can just think more clearly. I also feel more at peace & empowered by the way I'm living as I ethically see fit and inspiring others to use less animal products and be more eco-friendly as well. This is one of the best things I've done in my life. Also, Alicia's book is amazing and helped me come to a realization that I could love myself and take care of myself while helping the animals and the planet at the same time. Her book and this decision have truly changed my life.
