Hi, I’m Naty and yeah, I’m vegan. So; what is vegan? more exact, what is veganism?
Veganism is both the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals.
The term veganism is not that difficult to understand. Basically is just not consuming or using anything that comes from an animal. Many people wonder why exactly do we go vegan, but there is never a concrete answer. For many people is just because of the animals, others because of the environment, ’cause they had have issues with eating disorders, or just because they want to.
Well, some years ago, my best friend decided to go vegan, I didn’t pay that much attention of why or what was it; I just knew she didn’t eat meat. It was something normal. But, as time went through I grew up and I finally understood what veganism was. I guess, I didn’t care that much in the moment, I just didn’t want to acept the things she used to tell me. It is really hard to accept the true.
I decided to go vegan this year, I have like four five months of going vegan and it’s been amazing. I feel great, more energy, love, but really, I love all the food vegan gives. It’s just amazing.
When I decided to go vegan it was hard, I was scare that my family would take it well; so I started doing it by myself, I cook, I went grocery shopping, and stuff like that. Then I realize I had to tell my family what I had decide. At first my mom didn’t like the idea, I guess she still doesn’t get it at all, but she’s working on it.
I went easy, taking one thing at the time. It wasn’t that hard, I didn’t like to eat that much of meat, cheese and eggs; what was difficult for me was getting rid of the milk. But, OMG!!! almond milk is just; delicious. And hazelnut milk, they are just glorious.
Actually it is amazing how your body change, and how well it accept the change, for me, I’m just thankful I did this change. It has give me so much, it’s like a new beginning. And I love it!
