So I decided to adopt a vegan lifestyle today. I will consume honey so therefore I won't be a pure vegan. The decision came after viewing the documentary, "Fork Over Knives." I decided if I am going to work so hard to look good on the outside, I might as well apply that same effort to what I put into my body. I am already pretty conscious about what I put in my body so I don't think it will be as difficult as you may think. The hardest part for me will be avoiding dairy and animal based products. I don't eat a lot of meat anyways. Well, I regularly ate chicken, tuna, and salmon.

Well, day one was okay until I decided to go to a restaurant for lunch without researching if they had vegan options. Needless to say, I ended up leaving that restaurant. The biggest obstacle that I see is substituting meat for bread. I don't eat a lot of bread, so I definitely need to find a way to quickly cut back on that. Another disadvantage is that this lifestyle is very expensive. Eating healthy in general is expensive.

So as long as I don't experience any health issues I plan to make this a way of life. I will probably go for a health checkup in three months to make sure that I am not deficient in any vitamins or nutrients. So if you want to go out with me make sure there is a salad on the I'm playing well kind of, there are vegan restaurants out there so all hope is not lost for me.

I will keep you all updated on my journey.
