Being vegan in the middle of nowhere

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 =)

  1. I really admire you for doing this! I’m a vegetarian in France, which is easy when cooking at home, but not always easy otherwise. It seems that most dishes without meat in restaurants are covered in cheese to make up for it, and I still get weird looks from the cooks in the school cafeteria. “You don’t want any meat? You’re sure? Fish then? No?!?!” I’ll be following along to see how your French vegan adventures go!

    • Haha, the french culture has still yet to understand what a vegtarian is ! One of the first questions people tend to ask when you tell them you are vegetarian is “do you eat ham?” ^^ And then they worry about your health !
      Of course some poeple get it, but in general it is a little mad.
      So I guess I feel a little crazy for going one step further, I haven’t been out any where yet, so I feel that that will be a challenge, but for the moment I’m finding it really easy =)
