So far this is not as hard as I thought it was going to be! The world seems to be ok with me doing the vegan thing. Everyone I have told about my new adventure, while curious and concerned, has been very supportive and non judgmental! Restaurants don't mind making me a veggie plate even if it's not on the menu. My mom bought me a 12 pack of vegan soup from Costco. My dad said he was proud of me for learning so much about food and making educated choices, but suggested that I check in with a Dr. to make sure I'm as healthy as I think I am (which I agree is a great idea for anyone trying something new with their diet)! After only 14 days, I am not as tempted by cheese as I once was. Whole Foods has so many vegan options, and there are so many cook books and web sites dedicated to this life style!!!
Even the Oprah show did a special on being vegan! Check it out: Vegan on Oprah!
