So, it’s been a little while since I’ve started giving up animal products. I thoguht I’d start slowly, but I’m pretty much rid of everything already ! Just slowly getting rid of what is in the cupboards though….
It is no where near as hard as I thought it would be. I think the whole ice cream thing is going to be hard for me this summer though. I’ll probably end up buying an ice cream maker so I can make some mlk free ice cream !
I don’t even mind the fact that where I live there is probably not another vegan for miles. I like making everything from scratch.
I still have exceptions. I still eat the fried egg my boyfriend’s mum gives me for dinner. They are still struggling to get around accomadating for a vegetarian as it is ! If I go to a restaurant I just take the best option. And I don’t think that makes me a bad person. It is after all a lifestlye choice.
Maybe I’ll change my mind in a few years tim, but for now I’m happy being the 90% vegan. I feel much better overall and I feel a lots less sluggish and happier.
So despite a complete lack of support in this small french town, I’m happy with my choices and more than ready to carry on =)
