Plant-based eating focuses heavily on fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and whole grains. Numerous studies show that this lifestyle has many health benefits and since adapting this lifestyle, I've noticed fewer headaches and clearer skin. I also lost some weight!
Back in high school, I was a vegetarian up until my sophomore year in college. So, a total of four years. I started consuming dairy products and animal protein again because college was equivalent to greasy pizza, fat sandwiches (i. e chicken fingers, fries, mozzarella sticks, lettuce, tomato, white sauce, etc.), buffalo wings, cupcakes, and potachoes.
I'm back on the bandwagon and am excited to see where this journey takes me! I joined a vegetarian/vegan group on meetup.com and have followed tons of vegans on Instagram for inspiration. I'm trying to exercise at least three times a week, whether it be running, cycling, or walking. And I quit drinking.
I feel so confident in my skin and know that I'm putting good things into my body. There's really no greater feeling.
