Eating a vegan diet has proven to be the best choice I’ve made (diet wise) in a really long time. I remember thinking to myself, “How in the heck am I going to really stick to this when I couldn’t even stick to eating vegetarian?”.
But I must say, that this has been such an eye opening experience. The first thing that it has taught me is that you aren’t truly able to do anything until it’s the right time. Timing is definitely EVERYTHING!
I’ve realized that because I am at a period in my life where I know that I am absolutely ready to go at this new diet (all the way), it’s less of a struggle mentally.
Awesome Meat Substitutes to Try This Year is all about finding out the various ways that you can substitute meat on those days where you just feel like giving your usual eating habits a break or for those who follow a vegetarian and/or vegan lifestyle, this lists offers a few great ideas to incorporate in your diet. Plant Protein–the latest trend that has been transforming into a year of “no-meat” is just one of the many ways that you can say ‘yes’ to eating a whole diet and ‘no’ to eating meat if desired.
Honestly, I wasn’t aware that I could make such great meals while being a vegan. I assumed that a vegan diet would make things less interesting and that I wouldn’t be able to eat hardly anything since MOST things contain milk, eggs, honey, meat, and some other kind of dairy.
BUT I was wrong. Being on my vegan diet has allowed me to eat most of the same things (if not more!), however, it’s just using different ingredients.
Trust me, it’s so GOOD and your body feels good! So, I say this to say, that nothing is as impossible as it may seem at first, not even in a new diet.
You’ll go through periods of second guessing, fear, and maybe even the temptation of reverting back to your “familiar” but it’ll get better.
And by better, I mean a lot BETTER. In time, this new thing will be an old thing and will become your norm. So, if you’re trying a new diet, perhaps exercising towards a certain weight goal, or just doing anything else, remember to keep at it. You’ve got this!
