Vegan Learning curve

Wow, I am absolutely shocked at what I’ve been learning. I honestly don’t know how I got through 50 years of life not knowing that a plant based diet is so healthy, has protein and supports healthy arteries and cholesterol. Seriously I was raised by my parents who grew up on dairy farms! That’s all I ever knew- meat and dairy were essential to a healthy diet is what I grew up believing and doing, until now.

It was like all of a sudden I was interested in vegan and I started learning about it and I haven’t looked back yet! I’ve been watching so many documentaries I never noticed before. You know how that is – once you start focusing on something it just keeps popping up more and more.

I had absolutely no idea how much eating meat and dairy affects our health. Seriously. No idea. I am not trying to make anyone switch to vegan and I’m not even trying with my kids, but the lack of knowledge and the complete focus on Atkins and keto by our country is shocking now that I’ve been exposed to information about it. It seems so crazy to me that it’s all new to me because I always considered myself to be very educated when it came to things health related. But I had no clue.

Anyway – just wanted to put that out there to see if anyone else had this type of shift in their later years to go vegan. So far I’m thoroughly enjoying it and feel better than ever. Lighter, more energy and happier!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.

  1. Yep been sober 3 years and vegan nearly the whole time too. I absolutely thrive these days and am just annoyed I didn’t know all this sooner – but then maybe I wouldn’t have appreciated it then.


    1. That’s inspiring! I’ve still been struggling through the alcohol and can’t wait till I break through the other side you mention and look back on it and shake my head wishing I had realized earlier. I hope to read your blog for inspiration!

      1. There’s a couple of great women I followed on social media and on their blogs at the beginning of my journey and also some books that I found great. “Hip Sobriety”
        is a great blog/website and also

        These are both cool ladies who are great writers and will keep your inspired. I don’t talk a lot about being sober anymore – it’s just something I am – one day it won’t be your story anymore – your life will be so full of wonderful things that you won’t recall how hard it all was – reach out any time ❤️
