Since the start of this year I’ve been making more of an effort to eat more plant-based foods. For the first two weeks of January, I lived by vegan principles and found that I felt a lot better. I had more energy, generally felt healthier and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it and how little I missed meat.
My 14-day detox has encouraged me to make changes to my lifestyle. While I’m not quite ready to become a full-time vegan (yet) I’m certainly going to apply the principles of vegan living as much as I can. No longer will I be ordering my morning latte. Instead, I’ll be switching to almond milk. Now, having meat in every meal is a thing of the past. I know what plant sources I can turn to in order to get protein, and they will be my first port of call. It’s far from a conversion to veganism but it’s a step towards it. I’m pretty certain that these small changes will eventually lead to bigger things.
With that in mind, I’ve been doing a lot of pinning of meat free recipes. There is a good mixture of vegetarian and vegan recipes that cover all courses, with so many that I can’t wait to try.
Do you have a meatfree or vegan pinboard you could share with me? Please send your links my way.2 likes
