Trying to stay vegan

I have been trying to go full out vegan for years now.

You know those aggressive, angry vegans on Youtube?

Well, they got me.

After watching a few of them and in addition, doing some research into the claims that they present, I realized that meat and dairy are probably not the best foods to eat. Period. The best diet for me would be plant based only, because of some of the weird experiences that I had with meat and also with me having PCOS.

So far I am loving it, I feel great. I have more energy throughout the day and I am determined to keep it up because it is an amazing feeling.

My wanting to go vegan did not end there I actually tried to Pescetariansiam firstly in an effort to ween off meat and help with me wanting to go vegan entirely.

I gave up meat for 7 months and it helped but I did STRUGGLE. A lot. Struggled so much I relapsed (Forgive me).

Check out my blog post on my other blog about my experience—> I tried Pescatarianism

So today, I have been ‘kinda’ vegan for about a week.

I went like 4 days strictly vegan but due to not wanting to starve to death, I did indulge in butter and cheese because it was the only thing I have around me to eat at the moment.

I am Trini college student living on $500TT a month so the budget for more expensive vegan cheeses are practically non-existent so I have to make the decision about cutting it entirely without a replacement or dishing out a cool $50- $75 on vegan cheese.

Either way, my wallet is getting hurt.

Working on it though.

So far I am loving it, I feel great. I have more energy throughout the day and I am determined to keep it up because it is an amazing feeling.

Do you have any tips on how you stick to your vegan diet?

Do you struggle sometimes and go back and forth between veganism and vegetarianism?

Sincerely, Ann.
