Last night was my last meal of the 30 days of vegan. I’ll be honest, I kind of expected to have some sort of profound revelation that I could write about after this was all done. But really, all I have to say about it is: it was pretty damn easy.
Granted, I already ate the majority of my meals vegan before I started this, but I definitely had at least 3-4 non-vegan meals a week. I’d never actually tried to make a point to eat completely vegan for a long period of time. By doing this, I realized that it really isn’t all that hard. Sure, there were few times that I really wanted cheese (enchiladas & pizza), but once I started eating my vegan option (chalupas without cheese, and cheeseless pizza) I pretty quickly forgot about my cheese desire and I felt completely satisfied with what I was eating.
I’ve read that the reason to set a goal isn’t the achievement of the goal itself. The reason to set a goal is because of the person you’ll have to become to achieve it. I’m so glad I set this goal because now I know that I CAN eat completely vegan, pretty effortlessly, and feel entirely satisfied.
