Coffee-Mate-Vanilla-Caramel-Cream-laden coffee in hand, I thought I would start this post early today! I am looking forward to a time when I have given up this evil chemical I so depend on. I don’t even want to look right now at all the unknown ingredients in this coffee creamer! I know they are bad! One step at a time, right?
I find it ironic that my coffee of choice this morning, an extra bold Sumatran Reserve Fair Trade Certified™ Organic, comes in a plastic, non-recyclable K-cup. Is someone missing the point somewhere? Ah, well, one step at a time for all of us, even Keurig!
Hey, just more motivation to give up my morning caffeine addiction!
Anyway, I started this blog a couple days ago because I love writing and I thought that a blog would help me stay focused on my goal of changing my eating habits. I was so stoked yesterday to get my first follower! Jeff from “Vegan for a Year” stopped by to like one of my posts and so I headed over to his blog. I was happy to find a fellow newbie and a humorous honest blogger! I so look forward to keeping up with your vegan adventure, Jeff!
I have such a great admiration for people who take change into their own hands instead of taking the easy way out! I firmly believe that good things happen with hard work. I don’t believe in luck or fate. We all have different circumstances and struggles, even when it seems that some have things easier than others. If you don’t like something about your life, do what you can to change it. As I searched for recipes yesterday, I found other inspiring bloggers like Somer from Vedged Out! Wow girl! Your story is so inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing it!
I also found a great post that will make my first week of going Vegan Gluten Free that much easier! Angela, at Oh She Glows, created a 5 day lunch plan that is not only Vegan and Gluten-Free, but it looks absolutely delicious! She makes it so easy by providing easy printing for each day. I printed these out and will make my shopping list based on these recipes and head out to Whole Foods later today.You should definitely check out her lunch plan if you are looking for ideas to get started!
So today I will start by finishing up my 5 day vegan/gluten-free menu, and then I can’t wait to head out to shop and see what other options are available!
Thanks to everyone who visited yesterday! I have linked up to a bunch of new relevant blogs and I look forward to checking you out when I have more time. I am also feeling the pressure to make my blog a little more interesting, now that I know I have visitors. It’s good to have someone to answer to!
Have a wonderful, happy, healthy day everyone!
