Yesterday I signed a pledge to be vegan for a month. It has been an idea for a while but I didn't want to be awkward to feed as I love sharing food with friends. And then I started reading about the amount of cruelty in animal products, saw some horrific footage.
I cannot knowingly be a part of that.
And so I'm experimenting with being vegan...
So far it has been easy and challenging! Going shopping was tough- what can I eat??!!! Luckily I'm already a label reader so that helps.
Having members of my family be baffled by my choice is hard. How to explain that this is what I need to do for myself, for the planet. That pigs and cows and lambs and chickens could be treated like our cats and dogs instead.
And it's been easy food wise- two days full of delicious, nourishing foods. So far so good!!
And it's only 30 days, right?...
