- Why did you become vegan? Was it a bunch of reasons or one major one...gradual or instant?
I am gradually becoming a vegan. I have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for some time.
- When did you become vegan?
Have been transitioning for a few weeks now.
- How has it affected relationships with friends, family, etc...?
They have always known me as a health nut and when I whip out some of my vegan baked goods it shuts them up. :)
- What challenges did /do you face and how you dealt/dealing with them?
I love yogurt!! I have never cared for milk or cheese, but I love yogurt. I try not to consume much soy, so soy yogurt is out. Hopefully I can slowly cut back on my daily yogurts until I do not miss them anymore.
- What have you found easy/hard?
Easy- Giving up meat. I never cared for it anyways.
Hard- Feeling satisfied after a meal. I think I need to find more delicious recipes or assess my macro-nutrients to make sure I am getting in everything I need. I still don't know how much protein a vegan really needs.
- What has brought you to VEgan Represent?
Google search for vegan forums.
