NEW YEAR, NEW (VEGAN) ME?

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.


Love,
Jasmine
