To any followers that actually care..
I’m no longer vegan. This came about after my trips to both Bali and South Africa, it was too hard (for me, especially as a newbie to the lifestyle!) to do it in those places and then once I got back I had lost the motivation but I want to say:
1. I still think it’s the best diet for you, the animals and the environment.
2. After my 6 month stint as a vegan I feel like I eat better now than before I went vegan. I avoid a lot of dairy, don’t eat a lot of meat and I eat a lot more veggies than I ever did before.
3. I’m content to eat vegetarian/vegan meals when out at a restaurant when prior to this I had NEVER ever once ordered such a meal.
4. I am so impressed by vegans and vegetarians who can and do follow this lifestyle. In this regard I feel like I am weak of mind.
If you are vegan/vego I totally understand if you stop following and I wish you luck on your journey!
formeeee asked: Do you get enough iron from your diet? I get light headed when I eat vegan. ):
I eat a super plant rich diet, lots of dark leafy greens and I take a vegan multivitamin as a bit of insurance.
Eating foods high in vitamin c also increases iron absorption so when I have a green smoothie with kale/spinach I out an orange or lemon juice in there and I put lemon juice as a dressing in all my salads!
Vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters are all capable of being iron deficient so a healthy, varied diet is important for everyone!
