Happy Veganniversary!!!

August 5th, 2009 - filed under: The Food » Food and Health


Exactly one year ago, August 1st, I became a veg*n.

What a life-changer. I would not be, could not be, the woman I am today, were I not living true to my ethics every day.

I feel so grateful to have found this path, and I am so empowered in every aspect of my life, as I walk it.

Thank you to everybody, including *you* dear readers, who have helped me along on this epic journey. What a joy it’s been so far!

    Congratulations! That’s so awesome. I can’t wait for the day that I can say the same. Right now it’s so hard for me, not only because I am weak willed and love eating meat and cheese but life is so crazy with a 6-month-old and I can’t cook very well. But, I haven’t eaten meat in 3 weeks and my vegan Monday has lasted until now.

    @ Julie – Hey lady, it took me 28 years to make the transition, ya know? =) I think it’s so amazing that you’re making the choices you’re making these days, especially with a little one to keep you busy and an omnivore family to keep you tempted. Like I’ve said, don’t be too hard on yourself. It sounds like you’re doing a ton already.

    @ Kelly – Thanks! And I will! =D
