Vegan and Gluten Free for 13 months!

love-veggies-01

This week marks 13 months that I have been living vegan and gluten free. While it’s been difficult at times (especially in the cold Minnesota winter!), it’s definitely been a very eye-opening experience. I was a vegetarian for 3 years before deciding to take the dairy out of my diet, and by learning and reading more about gluten, I removed that around the same time as well. I will elaborate more on each of those changes in upcoming posts, for now, it’s time to celebrate this accomplishment!

Through these past 13 months, I’ve come to notice the incredible effect that food has on mood, health and my general lifestyle. I’ve learned that to be the best person I can be for myself, for my family and friends, and for my job, eating right and exercising (especially yoga!) is something that has to come first and foremost. Not because it’s selfish, but because I respect and love myself for who I am. After 13 months, I want to shout it from the rooftops, “I love me! I am fabulous!” And my life’s goal is to spread that word through inspiring others making healthy life choices – I want others to join me on that fabulous rooftop!
