A New Start
Sometimes I feel guilty for just being vegetarian. You know that feeling when somebody asks you, "Are you vegetarian or vegan?" and everything in you just wants to say "I'm vegan!" but you have to tell the truth because they might catch you eating a cookie with eggs in it or a bean dip with cheese on top. And then, there's always that voice inside my head that asks, "why aren't you vegan?" and I go through the whole, my parents are vegetarian, and it's easier to go to gatherings because there's more options to eat and I don't make people feel bad. Its not that I'd miss the food. I've been vegan most my life and I'd gladly do it again. So why aren't I?
This is the question I've been asking myself. In the few weeks its been since I've really posted, I've been figuring out what exactly I'm doing with my life, and what I want to do. And I've decided.
It's time to be vegan again! But this is what I say every time. What makes this one so different? It's that this time, I have a plan. Starting off, I'll be vegan 3 days a week. I can choose which days they are, but there has to be 3 days. Its what seemed like the right way to do it with my personality. What do you think? Do you think it will work?
Have you ever had a similar problem? What did you do about it?
