vegan for 10 years, then quit now back to full vegan

I was vegan for 10+ years. like turbo vegan.
like shopped in thrift stores and made my own mascara from spirulina and lived a raw vegan lifestyle vegan.

Veg for 2 more before that.

then i moved country, couch surfed ( beggars can't be choosers ) so i started eating whatever i was given. Started eating animal products through them as they food shared.

then got myself set up, have a home, a good job. getting here i just ate the free food i was given at work. then i got an office job and had ate what my partners family ate - as we lived together and they are full carnivores and think veganism is stupid.

during all this time, i stopped all my eco-habits. i didn't recycle. i didn't talk about veganism at all hardly. i just started to life life and enjoy life and all the experiences. and that was cool...

i felt so guilty. and yet i couldn't stop. and my hair was growing for the first time in my life despite taking hair vitamins all my life. ( and someone else told my, hair growth is a sign of spiritual alignment and being on the right path ... when obviously animal protein is obvs playing a big part too )

then after 2 years. one day i came home and my partner had watched those documentaries sea/cowspiracy and he - a person who rejected veganism - and proclaimed he was going to go full vegan.

so i was happy with that. I'd gained weight eating animal products, even though we ate pretty healthily, but my skin was bad. and my tummy and digestion was ****ed even though i drank so much water and ate healthy.

now back full vegan, my skin is clearing up so much nicer.
i do feel a lot better, but i am worried about getting proper nutrition and building muscle tone.
and i also feel "more me".

but i can't help but feel so guilt for all the animal products i used and ate over the last 2 years.

I'm not vegan but I stopped eating meat a year ago now. I just feel great!

Eating meat has become useless, I have absolutely no craving at all. My muscle mass decreased a bit, but my strength hasn't, I would even say the opposite.

Most people judge "if you're big, you're strong". Well that's wrong, especially with plant-based diets.

Replace meat with a mix of beans / nuts / cabbage / greens and spices with oil, it will be more tasty, and so much better for the body.

Do it for the planet. Avoid beef above all, it's really bad.

I have one rule to determine if a food is good or not by the way: if you can eat it everyday and not be sick, then it's good. Meat, and red meat especially, is not good ;)

Ah, I forgot.

Do sprouted beans / chickpeas, this is excellent, especially in winter when there is no fresh vegetables.

My favorite use these days: fry them in a pan with oil, turmeric and chilly. On top of a green salad with whatever ingredient you like (nuts, paprika, tomatoes, cucumber ...), this is delicious!

Nothing perfect under the sun.

The hair doesn't do well without meat, the skin doesn't do well with it.

I guess you just find what works best for you.

I actually admire people who have the discipline to go full vegan, but I know I don't. I just love cheese too much.

I wouldn't mind not having the meat, but the cheese...I would cave and have cheese. There's no way.
