I'm challenging myself to maintain a raw, vegan diet for at least the next 3 months. I feel the need to eliminate processed foods from my diet and to get a better grip on my eating habits in general. I was vegan for almost 2 years, then began eating cheese, eggs, and even the occasional piece of meat again. I'm not happy with this turn of events, and feel I'm in a place where I can gain control and put things back in balance. My motivation this time is that my fiancé and I are tying the knot (literally, we're getting handfasted!) this July, and I want to embark upon this new journey with a good, fresh start. Not to mention eating healthier might help me shed some of this obnoxious winter weight :P
I look forward to sharing ideas with all of you, and getting the inspiration I need to keep this going! Hopefully it'll be much longer than a 3 month trial, and can blossom into a new way of life. I'm also interested in joining the growing trend toward simpler, sustainable living, and I believe that a more ecologically friendly diet is a great place to start.
