Slow and steady wins the race. I never planned to become vegan.
I simply decided I wanted to lose weight and started altering my diet to slowly include more veggies and less processed foods. After several months as I continued to research more about food ingredients, I eventually became truly vegan. But if you had told me at the very start of my journey that I, the cheese-aholic, would one day give up cheese, I would have laughed at you.
