30 Bananas a Day!

First day going fully vegan!!!!(hopefully)

Hey guys, welcome to my first blog!  For those of you who dont know, I am a complete newbie at being vegan, especially since tomorrow will be my first official day.  I would have gone vegan earlier, but I had the issue of persuading my mom to let me(more on that later).  But now, I have decided not to listen to what anyone says about my diet(except those giving useful advice, of course) and to be vegan.  I hope that I will be able to go raw or rt4 vegan soon, but with the situation that i am in with my mom, I dont know how soon that will happen.  

Speaking of which, I am going to rant now about my mother and her close-mindedness.  Ok so I have always had different ideas and opinions about controversial stuff from my family(i.e. homosexuals, blacks, different religions, etc.).  I have always been more accepting, and when i heard about a raw vegan lifestyle from Freelee's youtube channel and the wonders that it could do for you, I immediately wanted to go vegan.  That was about 2-3 months ago, during which i did my homework on going vegan and worked up the courage to finally ask my mom, aka the ruler of the house, if i could go vegan.  She immediately forbid it, and freaked out entirely.  So for the past month, it has been an ongoing war with my mom.  I constantly tried to persuade her to allow me to eat a vegan diet, and finally today I had had enough.  I told her that I was going vegan and that was final.  She still believes, though, that if a person isnt eating meat or dairy, they arent eating anything at all and they are not getting any nutrients.  Essentially she seems to think that being vegan is basically like eating air all of the time.  I dont really care what she thinks though, because I refuse to eat the flesh of tortured animals any more(that part about not caring sounded really bratty, and that is not how I meant it).  So yeah, the next several weeks will be rough, mainly because my mom will be opposing me at every turn, so I will need you guys's support even more than I have before.  So yeah.  see you later,

Some people are quite ignorant (not that your mummy is an ignorant person) to the fact that being a vegan is like the most amazing thing you can be- for you and for the planet. Its just important to keep true to yourself and this lifestyle- when she realizes that you are very serious about this lifestyle I'm sure she will come around!! How could she not?? Stay true to your veganism!!! Word.
