Veganism



Ok, so I'm planning on starting a little experiment very soon..
After having integrated the vegetarian lifestyle for about 6 years now I actually think it is time to conquer new frontiers. I feel like after all these years of eating veggie, I've just become too convenient in my eating habits - and admittedly they are still not always healthy - that it's time for a change. 
I decided to go vegan because, well, vegan food is very healthy and sooo delicious! 
– also a little out of curiosity..  
I don't know how hard it will be for me to eat vegan only and for how long I will be able to keep up with a vegan diet - I also wanna watch the effects it will have on my health so I'm intending on starting a little experiment of only eating vegan for the whole month of August. 
By the end of August I will then post another follow-up post on my experiences with veganism. 
My expectations however so far are pretty positive. I know it won't be easy for me though, especially since I tend to be quite a yoghurt- and chocolate-addict so I think dairy products will definitely be the hardest to cut out of my daily diet but I will have to find the soya replacements and honestly some of them aren't even that bad.
For information, tips and food for thought I visited vegansociety.com , a website all about veganism. I especially liked their page to why go vegan? where they are stating some interesting information about the benefits of going vegan, so check it out if you're also interested in trying out the vegan lifestyle!
I think this is going to be very interesting and I'm actually intending on including some of my favorite vegan recipes by the end of August, too.
I'm glad I now have something to look forward to for the beginning of next month. :)


Are you vegan or have you ever tried being vegan for a while? 
What were your experiences? 

P.S. I'm going to be in Switzerland from tomorrow until the 2nd or 3rd of August so I'm uploading this a little early but I'm still trying to stay as active as I can on here during this time.

  1. Good luck on going vegan! I'm not sure if I would be brave enough to go vegan, I'm already celic/gluten free and that enough for me for now ♥

  4. this is fantastic.I can't wait to read your next post about it!
    I'm vegan myself although it's very hard living with everyone else that aren't. I didn't eat meat for weeks.. neither chicken although i did eat fish. I'm slowly getting there. I didn't cut down the diary products. haha this is going to be my own kind of vegan. But I feel great, I'm loving it.

    1. Hahah yeah, at least you're vegetarian! :) I didn't find such a big difference living vegan so far though except from the egg and milk stuff that's basically in almost everything we eat nowadays..

  14. That salad looks so nice it made me hungry:( but anyway good luck with being vegetarian! I used to be vegetarian, a few times actually. The first few weeks was a trial, then I got absolutely disgusted with meat and didn't eat any kind of meat for 6 months... But then I got drunk I fancied a hot dog haha! I really hope you will get on with it better than I did!:)

    1. Hahaha Vegetarianism as well as veganism is just something you have to get used to I believe. If you stay strong to keep it for long enough you'll notice your cravings will vanish :)

    1. That's great, too! I'm personally already so used to my vegetarian diet that I couldn't ever imagine eating meat again but I do see the challenge, especially if you like the taste of meat!
      I never did, but I like the taste of real dairy yoghurt, ugh, I miss it so much..

  21. Wow, your blog is so pretty.

    I'm glad you wrote about veganism. A lot of people are scared by the thought of only eating fruits and vegetables, but you make it sound fun.

    Also, I noticed that we're both the same height. YAY! It's hard to find girls over 5'6" LOL.
