This is a place to talk about all things vegan, be it dieting, clothing, etc. This is hopefully a place for anyone who has questions to come and gain new knowledge. I'll talk a little about where I am at to get things started. First of all, I am new to eating plant-based and whole foods. I tended to eat this way before, but had meat with most meals. Every now and then I mixed cheese and eggs into my diet. I am about a couple months in to the lifestyle and I really dig it. I naturally gravitated towards this way by limiting red meats and some other foods. Out of curiosity, I read some books and articles about plant-based/whole foods and that really clicked with me. It's easy and cuts the bullshit out. The other move I made was cutting down and trying to eliminate processed foods and heavy sugar in-take. I sort of just decided to cut everything out that was bad, but I am not a die hard yet. Starting out you aren't going to be perfect, but you want to consistently improve. I have had four days where I have had meat or something because it was just easier in the given situation. I am not trying to force my lifestyle on anyone, so I am not looking for others to cater to my needs. That is the abridged version of my story. Hopefully there are others here who want to discuss the lifestyle!
