Every year, you hear so many new years resolutions and they're often the same 'I'll go to the gym more often' or 'I won't eat sweets for a certain amount of time', you know the usual. Last year I had a resolution to be without meat for the whole of January, it wasn't the most difficult challenge since I already stopped eating red meat and chicken the year before, so basically, it was just a promise to leave out fish from my diet for a month. I did it quite easily, and just continued with eating fish straight in February. My diet is quite difficult to explain, I call myself a vegetarian because I feel like that's the easiest for other people to understand me, but then again, I do eat fish occasionally. I prefer to be without any meat, but I would lie if I said I haven't had chicken this past year. I don't like to put a label on what I eat, or what I don't eat, but other people seem to need it. For lots of people it's wrong that I eat some meat, like fish, occasionally, and then at some points I say no thank you to any kind of meat. I understand it, but then again, it's my choice. I choose to eat fish every now and then, while there are days when I couldn't imagine eating it because it doesn't feel right. This only concerns fish though, I would never go back to red meat, well never say never, but at this point in my life I couldn't.
Something that I've always wanted to try, is a vegan diet. I feel most at peace and so does my body when I've been without any sort of meat for even a week, so how would I feel if I was a vegan for a whole month? This is my new years resolution for 2018, my first, and only. I will stick to a vegan diet, that means, no meat, no milk products and no eggs, nothing that comes from animals. I have no idea how this is going to go, but I'm excited to try, I'm already easing in to a vegan diet, eating up all my cheese and eggs, plus I already have soy milk with my coffee. I wanted to write about this on my blog, because I'm going to do some updates, on new recipes i discover, difficulties I may have and just anything that has to do with my vegan month! Hope you're as excited as I am, and I'll be back in a few days to give you a little update.
