When I first decided to go vegan it was scary and incredibly difficult for me to adjust while still learning the basics of the lifestyle. I live in a state that doesn’t exactly promote healthy living or offer many vegan restaurant options, but I wanted to adapt and do what I felt was best for me, my life and the environment. I had been a pescitarian for about 2 years beforehand. I was unhappy, unhealthy and a complete mess. But I made the switch in a matter of a month through the help of online support from the amazing vegan community on Instagram.
