A. Foodie. Attempting. To. Go. Vegan.

Chickens are awesome.  This makes me think about a pet bantam hen we had when I was younger named Chummy - she was the last of a flock we had where the rest had been killed by foxes.  (We kept her inside mostly then to protect her.) She would come when she was called and would sleep in her little roost cage and on a blanket covered perch by the couch.  She lived to be 10 and was a real sweetie.

Today marks one year of eating an almost vegan diet. Its been amazing some days and incredibly testing others. I’ve broken down a few times but I have not consumed any meat.

I think as of today I will switch to eating a “strict” vegetarian diet (meaning very little dairy and egg consumption) & allow myself to eat meat situationally & when I’m craving it (which is now extremely rare).

I have learned so much about myself & about our food industry from doing research. I’ve also learned to view food as fuel for my body since as a vegan you REALLY have pay attention to what nutrients certain foods offer your body & when you don’t consume the proper nutrients, your body HATES you.

I honestly think everyone should attempt to eat a vegan diet, whether its for a day, a week, a month or longer. It will really open your eyes.
