When I first started doing the vegan thing late last year, it was kind of tough for me to walk into the kitchen at work on Friday morning and not participate in “Donut Day” since most (actually, I think it’s all) donuts from Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme aren’t vegan. As time went on, it got easier, where I felt less and less of an urge to grab a ring of unhealthiness. Now, I feel no urge whatsoever, especially when I think back to how it always felt like I had a rock in my stomach after eating a donut. I’m not an all-out health freak (have you seen how many cookies I eat?), but I have found that I rarely feel like crap after eating a vegan meal, no matter how heavy it is.
I used to think, “being vegetarian is easy and being vegan is hard.” Turns out the former is true, but the latter is false. Being vegan ain’t hard… it just takes a little getting used to. The most common thing I hear is, “I could never be vegan.” I think those people don’t give themselves enough credit.
