Going Vegan

Yes, you read that right. I am [strongly considering] going vegan.
So, I read New York Best Seller, Skinny Bitch.
I have seen it many times and just thought it was a stupid title so I didn't ever consider reading it. And I must admit, when I went into the book store and asked the employee about it, I whispered the "bitch" part because well, lets just say I have a pretty clean mouth. haha. BUT I gave it a chance and boy, am I glad I did.
The book is very well written (aside from the unnecessary language) and they get their point across very well. The book is funny and entertaining and has so much information (Ill probably re-read it again next week just to see what I missed the first time around).
Anyways, it was enough to convince me that I needed to make a change. I have been eating a vegetarian diet for nearly 6 months and I am feeling great. But this book talked a lot about eggs, milk and dairy (all of which I have been eating) and it disgusted me enough to want to make a change.
So, here I am. I'm doing tons of research and trying more alternative foods for most of the dairy based products we were eating. It will be a process. We are going to use up stuff we have and replace it with healthier alternatives when the time comes. I'm also going to continue doing research to make sure I (and mainly Levi) are getting a healthy diet, full of all the vitamins we need (which is, by the way, possible on a vegan diet).
Join me on this new path in my journey.
