This New “Vegan Lifestyle” Thing I’m Doing…

IMG_2602

Yo, I know it’s been awhile! So for the past three months I have been transitioning into a vegan lifestyle. This lifestyle has been of my interest since high school, but lacking the resources and information on how to begin has prolonged the beginning of my journey until now. 

The beginning of this semester I eliminated meat and dairy from my diet. A bit insane you think? This was the perfect time to begin because I live off campus now and have my own space and funds to make these decisions. My roommate happened to be a vegetarian, so there wasn’t much temptation around the house!

As most, being a broke college student I was concerned about the financial aspect of veganism. I discovered that it’s extremely affordable shopping at Aldi! Naturally, I had a few mishaps with eating products that contains dairy and ate fish a few times (vegan twitter would rant about that).

This lifestyle is helping me become more conscious of the foods and products I choose to put in and on my body. As it has a positive impact on the environment, my physical, mental and spiritual health. I still have a lot to learn, but I can offer tips and resources on how you can begin your journey. However, keep in mind that it’s essential to go at your own pace and discover what works best for you.
