My Vegan Mistakes
When I got started being a vegan, there were a lot of things I did wrong in my meat-free lifestyle. I think it’s important for me to share some of the problems that arose so that you don’t make the same mistakes I did.
Eating Bland Food
The biggest mistake I made right off the bat was eating boring food. I looked at being a vegan as diet and not a lifestyle, so in turn I only ate plain food that didn’t motivate me into eating. By the 2nd day of my diet, I was absolutely sick to death of eating salads.
And it’s not like there isn’t any interesting foods to eat on this diet. There are plenty of dishes you can find to eat, just do a quick Google search of some tasty dishes when you’ve got a meat-free lifestyle.
Not Eating Enough
Playing into the eating boring food subject was that I stopped eating as much as I used to. When you’re eating nothing but boring food, you find yourself not being motivated in wanting to eat anything. I would eat a piece of fruit or a vegetable and feel like I didn’t need to eat anything for hours. You have to make sure you continually eat, otherwise you’re body will suffer the consequences.
Keeping Things Around That Conflict With Your Vegan Lifestyle
It’s easy to fall back into old habits when the temptations are around you constantly. With that, it’s imperative that you rid yourself of anything that could pull you back into old indulgences. You don’t even have to throw it away, you could give it to someone who could make better use of it. You don’t have to be wasteful.
I hope my thoughts have helped you in your start to a herbivore’s lifestyle. Getting started is the hardest part, but trust me when I say it gets easier.
