Vegan 101

If you’re planning on eating full plant-based things can get overwhelming quite fast. You find yourself reading loads of ingredient lists and googling for vegan places nearby. Trying to figure out what is vegan and how to adapt your dairy containing recipes to vegan recipes. Yes! It can be fun and exploratory. However, it can be hard as well.

I have become a vegan since the beginning of this year, but about 2 or 3 years ago I developed an interest in veganism. I have found loads of interesting helpful tools that made my slow transition easier and fun. It turned out to be quite long. You can always bookmark the page and read each section separately in order to not get overwhelmed by the information.

What really helps me stay motivated and inspired

Sometimes there are just days that I’m frustrated. Things don’t go as planned and everything just seems to go wrong. And even when things go just as you like, you still feel annoyed and bothered. Grumpy bad days. It’s totally normal to have them. But lets be honest, totally not fun.

It’s the end of January and most of us are starting to forget our new years resolutions. Please say I am not the only one. There is this really fun thing to do, that really helps clear the mind. It makes you think about what is important and what you really want in life. So I really like to write things down, but if you don’t like that so much you can also practice it by simply thinking. Writing it is a bit more helpful for when you’re not feeling to well to just read trough it. And when you write it down it is also on paper and it makes it more real. So I would definitely recommend writing it down!

There are multiple things that I already do to reduce the amount of waste that I produce, and there are some things that I am ready to introduce to my lifestyle. I am a total beginner when I comes to zero waste, so if you have any remarks or tips, please let me know!

The minimalist wishlist; why it is okay to have a wishlist as a minimalist

Please I don’t want any gifts. I started saying this and people always think its a lie. I really don’t want to be ungrateful but for me I rather get an experience such as a lunch together or another way to do something fun rather then getting something. The more I get into minimalism, the less I want, but also the better I know what I do want. I don’t want cheap mass production items or items where you pay more for the brand then for the items worth. I like things that have good quality and are made with great care and love. And additionally I want new experiences. Many things I rather pay for myself. I like 100% natural peanut butter or vegan ‘cream cheese’ spread. I like nuts and trying new fruits. I want to book a sprs.me vacation, and discover new places.

About my ‘diet’

Two years ago I saw the documentary cowspiracy. This made me think so much about my food choices, mostly concerning the effect on the environment. I began a vegetarian diet. As someone who never ate much meat anyway, this was a fairly easy step. Nevertheless I started eating meat again. This had multiple reasons, one being the pressure I put on myself. I felt so guilty when eating meat or any animal product. Additionally I felt as if I was lacking nutrients and other essentials, especially calories. I continued eating animal products, but kept reaching for alternatives most of the time.
