Happy New Year everyone! So it has been 3 weeks since I boldly confessed I would never eat meat or animal product again....I lied.
In the last three weeks I most definatley have given into the temptation of eating meat - chicken / fish. I am absolutely done with pork and ALL red meats - that's the easy part. But things like butter, cheese and chicken which were all my staple foods; have been harder to "give up" . Now, I am aware there are substitutes for the dairy products I love, so I guess I really don't have much of an excuse now do I? I just haven't gotten around to whole foods as of yet (excuse). Since my vegan declaration 3 weeks ago, I can honestly say I have eaten chicken/fish maybe about 4 or 5 times (usually a combination of being broke and too lazy to go grocery shopping).
I have thought about transitioning to vegetarianism first, and then work my way up to full veganism but really, I think i'm just looking for a cop out. I heard someone say that if each person stops eating meat, they can save around 100 animals a year. That's absolutely crazy! I will admit that though I have never been an animal lover- I have always been a very compassionate person - So I want to do this, for my health, my environment, and the world. I just need to stay committed and keep on learning and finding creative ways to enjoy my food. Here are some pictures of foods that I have been making and enjoying aswell :
