30 Day Vegan Challenge – Week Four / Wrap-up

It’s July 1st, and the end of my 30 Day Vegan Challenge!

I didn’t do as well as I hoped. There were a few hiccups along the way, but I tried some new foods and recipes, and learned a lot about my eating habits. (And I lost 6 pounds!)

I think with my current lifestyle (working full-time, chasing around a soon-to-be toddler), being 100% vegan is unrealistic. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to cook all of my meals at home, and eating vegan at restaurants is challenging.

So, for the time being, I’ve decided to go back to eating mostly vegetarian, with a lot of vegan inspiration. 🙂 I plan to stick with using almond milk in my cereal, coconut milk coffee creamer, etc. I’ll still be on the hunt for great vegan recipes to make as I have time.

Baby steps…

  1. Good for you for trying it! Vegan can be overwhelming when you new to it. I am vegan and nursing my 5 month old and it can be challenging but my husband and I have never been restaurant eaters and I’m used to cooking every night. Keep at it and don’t be hard on yourself for having to take a step back. Any choice to eat healthier is a good one and maybe you will be able to slowly transition into full vegan eventually!

    • Thanks, Melody!

      It is a little overwhelming at first! I’m so glad I tried it, though. I learned a lot! I wish I could convince my husband to get onboard with going vegetarian/vegan. That would make things easier.

      I think before I try it again, I need to have a good variety of meals that I know I like (in addition to some recipes to try), and be better about planning meals in advance. Toward the end, I was eating a lot of salad and hummus…lol

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting! 🙂

  2. Nice weight loss!!! SO THIN! hahahaa

  3. We did a vegan challenge a few months ago. It was only one week (but for us it was long enough since we are big meat eaters around here). It was a challenge and I can completely identify with you with the going out to eat bit. We did have some really yummy meals that we have made several times since even with no challenge-it was just good food 🙂
