Hello Friends!

If you follow me on social media, you know that I recently adopted a plant based diet. I decided to make this step because I’ve tried many diets and was still looking for what would work best for me. I’m happy to say that I think I’ve found it!

What does a Plant Based Diet mean to me?

A plant based diet for me is excluding meat—-eating more veggies and greatly reducing dairy and products that come from animals.

Why?

I’ve always been an animal lover, so the idea has been with me for as long as I can remember. I never pursued the idea because I practically grew up on a farm and eating meat and using animal products was just a part of living that life style. My health going south changed everything. (I could go down a rabbit trail with that truth.) I explored many options as I said above and discovered What the Health and finally watched Forks over Knives after knowing about it for a few years. These documentaries helped me to take the big leap and really consider my diet from a different angle. I’ve been on this diet just over a month and I’m feeling great! I have more energy and feel lighter than I have in years. My pain has drastically reduced. I wish I could say that it is completely gone, but I’m just grateful for less pain.

What has been the most challenging part?

I think the hardest part has been changing my mindset. I went from eating Paleo to no meat and incorporating grains and carbs back into my diet. It’s a hard shift and I’m still adjusting. It’s been much harder to balance adding the grains and carbs back than cutting out meat.
