Day 8 of 31
Yesterday was probably the best “vegan day” I’ve had. I’m starting to notice the positivity I’ve been getting from people around me. I didn’t announce it, but I do have an IG page that showcases some of my vegan meals as well as a pictorial account of my experience. I do post some of my vegan meals on my IG stories, but never really announced that I was going vegan for a month.
When I first started this, I really didn’t know what to expect. I honestly kept it to myself because I thought people would judge me or think I’m just trying to join another diet fad. I really just wanted to lose a little weight, eat cleaner and open my eyes to a vegan menu for our up and coming restaurant. Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of messages from friends via IG either asking or checking in on this venture. I’ve had at least 4 people who have told me they’ve been wanting to try vegan a diet, but didn’t know how to start. My mom even has been texting me that her and my dad are eating better. I just received a text from her with pictures of all the meatless things she just purchased. I love inspiring people, but I had no idea I would be able to via my personal journey!
Yesterday I made one of the most filling vegan meals ever! I was literally stuffed after I ate my vegan bowl. Then later on, a friend and I went to eat at an Indian restaurant and it was cool to see a lot of vegan options on the menu. This was my first time since I’ve started this to go to a restaurant as a vegan.
All the encouragement and positive vibes I’ve been getting recently has truly kept me going!
