2 Week Vegan Menu
There you were: Saturday night, bored at home, scrolling through the endless bullshit that is Netflix and.. Wait? What’s this? Cowspiracy? What the Health?
“I’ll give it 10 minutes”, you thought as you hit play. “I’m just gonna watch to laugh at the crazy vegans”.
Two hours later, and you’re on the floor crying.
How could I be so naïve!?
~ Your Sorry Ass
It happens to the best of us!
I never though in a million years that I would go vegan, but one documentary (and 6+ years later!) and here I am.
I completely get it! I was infuriated that I was going to have to change all of my eating habits, but trust me! It’s less scary than you think.
Let’s take it day-by-day, baby!
So, you recovered from your world-shattering epiphany last night. Congratulations! You’re taking the first steps to opening your eyes to the world. Take the red pill (matrix anyone?), get the fuck out of bed, and be ready to feel amazing.
Be aware: staring out, you may feel a little hungrier than usual. Since most vegan meals are lower in calories, make sure you’re eating extra to make up for it! There’s no need to feel guilty for grabbing seconds 😉
