How do you say it? I’m vegan. I’m a veganite. I recently converted to veganism. I’ve given up meat and dairy. I’ve given up animal food.
I’m not sure which one fits, but I’m working on it.
Last month, I decided to try the vegan lifestyle/foodstyle. I saw I was gaining some extra poundage and needed a way to stop ordering whatever I want off the restaurant menu. Being vegan, I found/find I have to order something pretty healthy every time I go out for food. It sounds crazy, but it’s the only way I can control myself.
So that’s how this whole thing started. And I soon learned that being vegan is actually pretty awesome. 1) I don’t eat as much crap. 2) I focus on eating food that is high in necessary vitamins. 3) I’m rarely tired and have way more energy. 4) I’m cooking.
Join me on my journey through veganhood/veganland/veganville. The photo attached is a vegan carrot muffin from one of my favorite cafes — Sweetleaf (in Long Island City, NY). The Sweetleaf bakers make incredible desserts right there on the premises, and there is always a wide array of vegan options.
