Dear Vegan Lifestyle,

At Doomies chowing down on a vegan BBQ burger.
Man, you have been rad

I've been living vegan for over six years now, and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

I wake up each morning grateful to be thinking of a compassionate world when I make my choices.

The food is AWESOME and always satisfying. It didn't all taste so great at first (silly tastebuds!), BUT once I gave myself the time & commitment to keep trying new stuff, it just kept getting yummier and yummier. 


SERIOUSLY!


I've seen so many people around me positively impacted by my going vegan, & since changing my eating and living habits, I've seen the world around me change too - so many advances have been made to help animals!

You give me a kind of strength I didn't know I had.

You add a special kind of love to my heart I didn't know I needed. 

You keep me full.

You keep me healthy. 

You give me something to feel charitable and kind about every single day. 

You are helping me grow a healthy, active, beautiful baby girl inside of my very vegan belly.

You keep me humble, curious, and gracious. 

You give me hope. 

Basically...

What I'm trying to say is...

Thank you for sticking with me these past six and a half beautiful years. 

Thank you for continuing to inspire me. 

And hey - I just made some kick-ass sprouted toast with vegan butter & pear jam, while my boyfriend just made his coffee with organic soymilk. 

We did all that after snuggling with my rescued kitty Vicki. 

It's been a really really really good morning so far. 

And I'm pretty sure you are the reason. 


Kisses and Hugs,

Linds
