After much research and soul-searching, I've decided to take the pledge to be vegan for 30 days. As I've mentioned before, I was a "mostly vegetarian" for about 10 years, have been an omnivore for the past 8. I've never been comfortable eating animals, my main reason for taking this leap, improved health benefits and weight loss are just added perks to this lifestyle change. I hope you'll follow along this journey with me, promise not to jump on my soap box very often!
A disclaimer: at this time, I am only embracing the "food" part of veganism. I have no intention of tossing out my leather couches (sorry!) or shoes just yet, taking this in baby steps here.
Any fellow vegans out there, I could sure use some support and guidance! I've already discovered some awesome bloggers out there such as Marty who provided me with the title of this post, and my longtime favorite blogger, Sheryl Yvette who has inspired me in so many ways.
Here goes, wish me luck!
