10 Things I Learned On My Vegan Journey

By Robert Kennedy III

I’m not a big meat eater.  And by that, I mean, I choose not to eat it the majority of the time.  But, I might do it if it was a holiday or if I was out and that was the best thing available to me.  In fact, I mainly grew up on a vegetarian diet.  However, I didn’t ever really think that I could be vegan because that would mean that I would have to give up lasagna, mac and cheese, and pretty much everything I love at Olive Garden.

Why the interest in going vegan in the first place?  I’ll give you a bit of the backdrop here.  One of the things that I love doing is taking on a challenge at least 8 times per year.  I do that because I believe it keeps me focused on taking on fear and overcoming perceived obstacles in my life.  It keeps me from easily slipping into an easy comfort zone.

I have also been told that changing to a vegan diet gives you more energy and I definitely wanted to try it out.  Who doesn’t want more energy, right?

As with everything journey, there were some things that I learned.

Check them out here in this video:

 

Taking on a vegan journey is very much like many challenges in life.  You have to make some changes that might be a surprise but ultimately, it is not as daunting as you might think.  We all go through changes and I’m a big believer in practice.  The more you practice making decisions, the better you become at them.  The more you practice taking on challenges, the better you become at them.

I’m going to take on the 100 mile challenge soon.  That is, I’m going to run 100 miles in 28 days.

What challenge will you take on to shake things up a bit?
