I’ve made it to a full month! I’m actually really proud of myself. I haven’t cheated on my diet at all and have not craved meat once. That’s a lie, maybe once or twice. Some of you are probably curious to why I started this at all, and there’s a few reasons why. Keep in mind, all of these reasons are personal, and if you don’t agree that is completely fine. These are solely my feelings and opinions. There is no right or wrong way to live your life, and I do not believe I am better than anyone else that is not vegan.
Be the change you want to see in the world
Some of you might know by now that I’m a vegan newbie. Being vegan means you don’t consume any products that come from animals. I’ve been slowly adjusting my cosmetics, shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo, and have finally leaped entirely into being vegan. My boyfriend James has been the biggest influence on me, he’s been vegan for almost four years now. It all started off as a bet. Four years ago at Chipotle, he decided to opt out protein, so he could get free guacamole. I bet him he couldn’t go vegetarian for a month. He took the challenge and went way too far. He started off as a vegetarian, but later on found out he had some intolerance to dairy and was allergic to pork. This made him change from vegetarian to vegan. Since his journey started, we’ve been able to try out some new places that offer all vegan options or more than usual. Here are some of the places we’ve tried in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area.
