Why I Became Vegan!

I became vegan about 1 year ago, and I wanted to share a little story about my vegan journey. Hope you enjoy!!

Throughout my whole life, I have never really enjoyed any meat products. I usually ate meat products to satisfy my parents at the dinner table, but I never craved a hamburger or a steak. As a became older, I started to learn about becoming vegetarian and vegan. At the time, it seemed like an impossible task, how could I ever eliminate an entire food group? As years past, I began to read a novel called “How Not to Die” by Michael Greger. After a few hours hooked on the stories and nutrition guides, I became vegan. It was a very drastic, spontaneous decision, but was eventually worth it in the long run.

Truthfully, it was not that hard to become vegan. Giving up animal-based products was not a huge struggle. I always receive comments like, “I could never give up hamburgers” or “I could never go vegan”, but I believe the challenges of becoming vegan are over exaggerated. Once I gave up animal-based products, I never had cravings or sudden urges for any animal byproducts. When I substituted meat, dairy, and eggs with fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, I was satisfied with every meal. Becoming vegan, just requires a little bit of planning and dedication.

  1. Congrats on your journey, I’ve been vegan for two and a half years now. I always tell people that being vegan isn’t hard that the hard part is more figuring out about hidden animal products and it’s not as convenient but it’s well worth it. For me personally, it took about a year for the cravings to go away, and I don’t crave anything that anymore but I still have cravings that is like a burger but that can be satisfied with veggie or the beyond burgers.
