How long have you enjoyed a plant based diet? I have been vegan for a little over six months. I have enjoyed every minute of it.
How did you transition into a healthier lifestyle? It all started when I stumble across a health blog called Organic Olivia. When I found her blog and instagram back in 2014, I became more and more health conscious. I learned about GMO’s, parasites, natural cures/remedies, herbs and so much more. From there I was on a journey to find out how I could live a more healthy lifestyle. Though I was in this new health conscious mind set, I still had yet to cut out animal products. Back in June 2015 I came across Freele the banana girl on YouTube. After watching her videos and documentaries on factory farming, animal abuse, and the effects factory farming has on the environment, I knew I had to make a change. I had to make a change that would improve my health but also improve the lives of animals and the environment. I had attempted to go vegan that July and failed miserably. Being around BBQ nearly everyday and a family that wasnt super supportive of my decision lead me to just give up. Lame excuse I know. So after giving up I sat down and reevaluated my decision to go vegan. I had to realize why I truly wanted to live this lifestyle and not ever give up because of its many benefits. So, late September I said to myself “I’m going vegan. And this time, it’s for good.” Have not looked back since and I have no regrets. Switching to this lifestyle has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is your favorite cruelty free dish? I make these little homemade flat bread pizzas that are my fav! Super easy to make but full of flavor. I have these almost once a week.
Any tips for other vegan viXens in progress? My tip is to never let anyone downplay your lifestyle and diet. People always have their jokes and sly comments but remember that this journey is a happy, healthy, and cruelty free one!
