Vegan...

I will be honest, i never thought for a minute i would be Vegan. Everyone that knows me is well aware i have a huge heart for all animals, yet i was still eating them until a few months ago.

I had wanted to be a vegetarian for a long while but for some reason i kept putting it off, i don't know why. Then April this year i decided to cut out meat, but still eat fish for a while so it wasn't a huge change all at once. It was actually pretty easy, i didn't miss a steak or a burger as much as i thought i would. So after a few weeks i cut out fish/sea food too and didn't eat meat at all.

Then when Craig (the other half) went off on his 2 week trip to the Balkans i decided to order the shopping Vegan style just to see how it would be. I bought many different things including soya milk and non dairy spread, these were the two main things i was worried about not liking, especially as i was in love with the taste of Lurpak!

Again i found the transition surprisingly easy, maybe this was partly down to the things i had recently discovered about the meat and dairy industry, horrific things i simply was not aware of before.

So a few months on and i am still Vegan, and still i do not miss meat or dairy. Trust me, i used to eat quite a lot of meat, and i will be honest i love the taste of a well cooked chicken breast or a big juicy steak, but my mind set has completely changed from the research i have done and the way that i feel.

Not only do i feel healthier and slimmer, i also feel happier in myself.

I cannot pin point the exact second i decided i would become Vegan, but i do remember thinking about the fact i attend the occasional greyhound racing protests (including running a half marathon for the beauties) and give monthly donations to multiple animal charities, yet i still eat animals. To me that suddenly didn't feel right.

I will be cheesy now and say it is the best thing i have done in a long time, and i wish i had made the change ages ago.

Now to add some colour to the post...see below just a tiny snippet of the foods Craig and i have been eating.
