Have you ever thought you want to change your eating habits? Maybe even eat a plant-based diet?
I think I am ready to start. (It’s scary to “say” that out-loud.)
If you have ever had these thoughts, and want to follow someone else’s journey from start to finish, keep on readin’.
Something has been on my mind a lot for the last several years. Food.
More specifically, healthy clean eating, plant-based, animal cruelty free diets, and the mental, emotional and physical benefits you can get from changing your diet.
Here is an honest confession – I eat like crap! I have had a few goes at cleaning up my diet in the past, but I always fall back into bad habits.
It’s not that I don’t know better. I really do. I have don a ton of research and have even personally witnessed miraculous health transformations due to diet change within my own family.
When my dad was given a very bleak cancer diagnosis, he dramatically changed his diet and has astounded his doctors with how well his body responded. (Please note: this is not meant as medical advice and I am in no means qualified how to tell people to treat their illnesses)
Yet, all that said, out of convenience, and more-so habit, I always revert back into eating poorly.
Looks good right? I eat way too many of these, and not near enough veggies!
The start of this blog has reignited my desire to eat a more clean and healthy diet. Jason recently called me out on having a “crunchy” blog while eating like I do. It is silly in that I worry about cleaners, fragrance, air fresheners, deodorants, and toothpaste while filling my body with tons of processed and unhealthy foods.
I recently watched a bunch of food documentaries on Netfllix (thanks for reminding me I suck) and decided to take the plunge again.I was going to wait till New Years – BUT, any change worth making, is worth making today!
Ok, Doesn’t this look yummy too??
To make this change stick for once and for all, I’ve decided that I need a plan. This plan needs to consist of:
- why I want to make a change
- steps on how I will work towards eating a healthier diet
- hurdles I may face and how to proactively reduce their impact
- goals and milestones I want to reach
As I put this all together, I am going to share the plan here with you and then update you all on my progress as I go.
I will include everything from why I want to do it, specific challenges I expect to face while transitioning into a plant-based diet, goals and milestones to keep me motivated, step-by-step plant-based diet transitions, to meal planning/prepping tips and experiences, shopping lists and pantry stocking, recipes, nutritional information and much much more!
