Since following a vegan lifestyle, a lot has changed for me.
although i had followed a vegetarian diet for over 10 years, cutting out dairy, eggs, etc. has still brought a significant change to my life.
so far a plant-based (mostly) whole food diet has helped me to get a healthy relationship with food.
i can eat until i am full and still feel comfortable after.
it has never been so easy for me to maintain weight.
since a plant-based diet is usually high in fieber, it helps with boosting your metabolism and regulates your digestive system. animal products/ dairy products especially are high in saturated fats, which makes you gain weight easily and in an unhealthy way.
besides that you get so much more aware of the food that you put into your body. 🌱

We need vegetables. you know it. i know it. we all know it. you probably still don’t wanna eat the freaking vegetables. here’s two of my favorite ways to get them in without too much work:
•stir-fry mushrooms with whatever protein you’re having. more volume, more antioxidants.
•buy up some plain bags of slaw. mix it with some homemade dressing (or one without processed oils from the store like @hilaryseatwell chia ranch- its a bangin dressing) and call it a day🌱
