So I have been on the path of Veganism for a little over a month now and I must tell you I have never felt better! I have lost 16 lbs, I have energy, I don’t feel hungry all the time because I am getting all of the nutrition I need. Unlike before when I was eating pretty much cardboard and killing myself. I was always hungry because I wasn’t feeding my body or my mind.
I cant believe what a change a month has done for me and I am looking forward to the results of a fulls years worth of being Vegan. Who knows if I will ever go back now, ask me in a year lol. I am amazed however at how people react when you tell them, no thank you I cant eat “that” they then ask you,
“well then what can you eat if you cant eat meat, eggs, or dairy that cuts out my whole diet.”
Well my friend that could be you’re obesity issue first of all, but secondly it got me thinking about how people are truly ignorant to the products corporations put into the foods they put in they’re bodies. So then I stared posting to my Facebook information and nobody cared but the people that I already know eat well and take care of they’re bodies. So I thought HEY bright idea I will start posting pictures of what I eat so they will see Vegan’s can eat yummy foods too. So I would sit on Pinterest for hours looking threw Vegan boards and making yummy food and posting pictures of it, but the response I got wasn’t what I thought it would be.
It was “is that meat? I thought Vegans couldn’t eat meat!” and “what is that, cheese, you cant have cheese Tiphany.” or “since when are you Vegan?”
These snide remarks not only make me feel like these people (my friends) actually think I am a friggin idiot, like I hadn’t researched anything and just went blindly on eating the same things I always have and calling myself a Vegan. Witch reminded me of two things 1) People I call my “friends” on Facebook really don’t know me at all and 2) Obviously they haven’t researched a damn thing. Or they would know that the world of Vegan foods go’s well beyond Tofu, beans and salads. There is over 5o0 different kinds of Vegan cheeses out there and Vegan ‘meats” are in the thousands! That are all plant based or Soy based or even beans and nut alternatives!!
The world of Vegan food is WAY more than you could ever expect going into it blindly. So once again I am going to designate some of my time into showing people that there is more than meets the eye in the world of yummy Vegan food. Witch brings me to the one thing people ask me the most about.
Ever wonder how when looking threw Vegan reciepes or at your friends Vegan plate how it looks to cheesy and gooey and oh! my yummo goodness? Here is a list of some of the most delicious and desirable “cheese’s” on the market for Vegans today. Brought to you by: Eco Vegan Gal not only does she have this list but she has all the information you need for just about anything!! Here is the link to the Ultimate Guide to Vegan Cheese Alternatives. I have tried a bunch of them and I assure you when she says Vegan’s and non-Vegans love them she isn’t telling a lie. So open your mind and start replacing things in your diet one thing at a time and you will be astonished at the results. For a closer, quit questioning me. I know what I am talking about. Thanks 🙂
