Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know about this huge change that I made to my life, a little over a week ago. It’s something that has been on my mind for quite some time, but to commit to eat felt kind of scary and overwhelming. I just didn’t have the motivational drive to start. And when it comes to complete lifestyle changes, motivation and dedication is key!
So what is this big change you ask? Drumroll please!!
I’ve gone VEGAN!
I think the decision to go vegan was made up by many little things. I’ve been tempted for so long to make the change, but I just had no idea where to start. But then I watched a video clip (a friend of mine shared it on Facebook) of a cow about to be slaughtered by a gunshot through the head, and the cow was franticly trying to avoid the little red aiming light. That’s when something just clicked inside of me, and I just decided that it was time to make a difference.
And you might think that it doesn’t make that much of a difference in the big picture of thing! But the big picture is composed by all of us individuals and the choices we make. And guess what! A vegan lifestyle of one person, saves one animal. EVERY DAY! That adds up to a whole lot of them over the years. And it’s not only about saving animal lives (even though that’s hugely important), it’s about our planet (pollution, saving the rainforest etc) and it’s also about my own health.
When you start to really look at the food labels, it’s cringeworthy to see what it is we’re putting inside of us on a daily basis. No wonder we’re getting sicker and fatter. It’s time to take care of this body. It’s the only one I’ll ever have!
And I’ve found so many amazing vegan recipes already!
Like these vegan salty chocolate cookies:
I’ve been vegan for little over a week now, and I already feel so much better!
So I’m taking you with me on this journey! Hop along and discover with me 🙂
