All The Mistakes I’ve Made During My First Year As A Vegan

March 30, 2017

I’ve been vegan for a year and 3 months and I wanted to reflect on my vegan journey.  When I travel for work so many people tell me how I’ve inspired them to go vegan and they are working on their transition by cutting out most meats and eating seafood. I’ve also talked with moms on Instagram who really want to raise their children as vegan but aren’t sure how to do it.  I’ve created a healthy living workbook that discusses how to make the transition to eating a plant based diet.

For me, transitioning to vegan hasn’t been the most difficult experience but to be completely honest I’ve made mistakes.  Do I miss meat? Yes. Have I eaten meat? No.  Do I still eat things that aren’t vegan?… now if I tell you everything you want to know right here in this post what reason will you have to watch the video that I made for you?

Now that you’ve watched my video please do share your thoughts on it. Do you appreciate my honesty or are you ashamed of me? Let me know below.
