Sorry I missed a post last week, as I stated 2 weeks ago final exam week rolled around so I was consumed with studying. I’m done with the semester!! Phew! Survived an entire 1 1/2 weeks off vegan frozen foods, SCORE!
I have officially completed 3 weeks as a vegan and will be starting my 4th week, that was fast! It has become very second nature now, I know what groceries to buy, what to eat, and how to tackle fast foods (Taco Bell is Vegan fast food heaven).
So I am finally back home with my parents in Michigan, and I had to break the news to them that I have gone Vegan. So we were in a grocery store today, and I went straight to the organic food area to grab some almond milk coffee. My mom looks at me and goes “are you Vegan or something”? I look back and respond, “ Yea, actually have been for 3 weeks now”. I’ve never seen my mother in so much denial. She put 4 gallons of Milk in our cart, several packets of cheese, and cartons of butter. She’s going to make sure I’m not vegan, I just kept laughing at her and loading my cart with my own groceries. So yea, living at home is going to be a challenge in itself, especially since my mom is in major denial haha, she’s adamant that I’m going to die of starvation…
Honestly, the past 3 weeks living off a plant-based diet has probably been the best decision ever, and having to blog about it kept me going. My body feels a lot more energetic and light. I can have an entire vegan pizza and not feel groggy about it, best of both worlds! Won’t deny that it has been difficult in the beginning, but I highly recommend atleast trying, but more reflection to come later!
Tonight, we’ll be making Enchilada’s!! I’ll be posting my Vegan enchilada recipe soon! Thinking of starting an Instagram to add more pictures of my random creations, i’ll get back to you guys on that one!
