I was so excited when I woke up today because this date is important to me in many ways. Last year I made a new years resolution to go vegan by the end of the year. I spent the first half of that year loosely paying attention to what I was eating and doing plenty of research about the benefits of veganism and how to make transitioning easier, but I wasn’t actually taking any action to make it happen. On July 28, 2015 I made the pledge to swear off of animal products and began actively transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. Today I get to celebrate that decision. It’s been one whole year since I chose compassion and health over the selfish, fleeting satisfaction of consuming animal products. I could not be more proud.
Today also happens to be the 1 year anniversary of Vegelovin (although I do have older posts here that were imported from a previous blog). Moving forward, I’m hoping to make this blog much more active. As I pursue my Bachelors in Dietetics, I hope to share my research findings and support other people who want to make the right decision but don’t necessarily have all of the right resources.
I can’t believe I’ve made it this far and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.
