The lifestyle is a no brainer, but the eating is getting easier. I'm eating alot more and having a blast finding new places I can eat out, just to prove to myself and others there's plenty of choices as vegan. Funny, I have a freind who insists on asking me why I'm doing this to myself, as if I must be miserable. I don't preach when it's not asked for, or judge others on…Continue
I missed posting my progress past two weeks, I was travelling and finishing up finals, which went really well. Let's just say, that although I had to deal with some eating struggles while travelling, I fully expect to continue this lifestyle beyond the 30-day challenge, because it's just so easy. I believe everyone's experience and body is different, and for me I had to make little adjustments to make this work for me. The main was to stop eating myself into uncomfortable fullness, I know…Continue
I stayed raw except for 3 meals. I thought the potato meals was going to be super boring, but it wasn't! However I found that the corn pasta digests much better for me, and faster. I am struggling with finishing my 2liter smoothies, either completely or in a timely manner. They can take me a couple hours to finish because I get SO full I just cant drink anymore.

So, before and afters are AMAZING inspirations, but I'd like to do transitional photos as well, to further inspire (hopefully). One week updates to come :)
My food background:
Vegan and vegetarian as a teen, standard diet for 10+ years. I don't normally eat a lot of meat, but do fall prey to candy and processed food for convenience. I've tried fad diets, pills, over-exercising, even medical treatments. I am way excited to get back to vegan because I know I need the healthy…Continue
