Veganuary 🌱 ..
18 days of being Vegan.. read on if you want to know my thoughts and experience! ⤵️
Choosing to do ‘Veganuary’ this year, wasn’t to ‘jump on the bandwagon’ or ‘follow the hype’..
I decided to do it to challenge myself, switch up my nutrition and food choices and assess the impact (if any) on my energy levels and overall health! 😊
So how have I found it? 🙋🏽♀️
Day 1 - Day 8: The first week or so was HARD! I had a constant headache for 3-4 days, felt really low in energy, and was extremely bloated no matter what I ate. I was also constantly hungry….but, I persevered and I am so glad.
Day 9 - Day 18: I feel great! My skin seems to be clearer, energy levels have improved, I am sleeping better and I am finding cooking vegan recipes and experimenting with plant based foods really fun and interesting!! 👀
So, will I be continuing to be fully vegan once January is over?
In short, no.
HOWEVER, I will be…
- Drastically reducing my consumption of meat & poultry by only eating 2-3 meals per week which include meat or poultry
- Continuing to eat more beans, pulses and lentils
- Continuing to focus on eating whole foods
I would love to hear your thoughts …
How long have you been a vegan for?
What is your favourite plant based meal?
What do you miss the most?
Let me know! :)
