Veganism

Hi,
Recently, I've decided to make the switch from vegetarian to vegan. It's something I've thought about for a LONG time, but was kind of in denial and was also very lazy about making the change.

I really have to admit that watching Earthlings was the direct trigger for me to switch, though. I was wondering...for those of you that are currently practicing veganism now, did it take you a while to make the transition? As in, did you have some slip ups or did you just automatically make the switch?

Hello Mava, my family and I have recently become vegan but like GSX-R girl if we are invited to family or friends for dinner it is a vegetarian meal we usually are offered and gratefully accept. We have been on and off veggies for a long while mostly due to our daughter of four who had extreme eczema, which I thought was not very common but see so many children suffering with it. I have to be completely honest and say my partner and I have the occasional slip up where cakes are concerned, this is mostly due to the fact on my part anyway is I have lost to much weight. I shall watch the film Earthlings, I have never heard of it.

Thanks for your replies!
I think that's great - I was kind of stressed about what it'd be like going out with others or eating at someone's house. Just doing vegetarian seems alright in those situations.

Yea, I recommend Earthlings!

Still making the transition! I've had a hard time with it because I've been addicted to dairy products most of my life. However, I have been specifically told more than once through spirit and guides that I need to cease eating dairy, as it is a non-food and not meant for human consumption. So, I'm slowly transitioning out of a mostly vegetarian/pescetarian lifestyle.

Also, I highly recommend the book 'The Veganist', the author gives lots of really simply and yummy-sounding meals!

Hello, I pretty much went vegan over the course of a couple days after being a vegetarian for years. Like everything else, there is a learning curve but it isn't long before you start understanding how to do your shopping accordingly. As for eating out and eating at friends places, I usually don't make a big fuss and am happy to partake in side dishes and so on (after all I'm really there for the company and the free meal is a side benefit) In restaurants, I will pick the entrees that seem like obviously 'safe' dinners and don't get into asking myriad questions about ingredients because I know it will just make others feel uncomfortable and weird.

So it isn't really that difficult, just takes a little time to get comfortable with a new lifestyle. The only other thing that I've really focused on is learning about bodily requirements and which foods provide which nutrients. Personally, I find it a fascinating study, all the amazing ways that our bodies use foods. Be easy on yourself and you'll have so much fun with this. Guaranteed.

Each organism reacts differently to transitions. Therefore, carefully monitor changes in your body.

It was definitely a process of time making the shift. And sometimes if I am out or other people cook for me, I will eat vegetarian because I am just not that activist about it.

I seem to go through periods of time where I go full on with vegan and then i let some things slip.

I want to watch earthlings now
