I have been the cousin to a vegan diet for over 12 years. A proud passionate vegetarian. I even dabbled in veganism for a nearly a year when I was first starting out. So when I heard about the 90 day vegan challenge hosted by health advocate Lasse Larsen I was immediately sold.
I sent over a video and a short email and a few weeks later I got the great news that I was accepted into the challenge. I would be alongside three other newbies all of which were COMPLETELY new to a plant based diet.
We would spend the next three months setting goals for ourselves, meditating daily, adhering to a new menu plan, and when the road got a little bumpy Lasse would be right there to coach us.
Since I was the only one who had somewhat of a background in plant based living I thought the journey would be straight forward and I would just sail right through. I was not prepared for how much of an emotional journey this would be.
How I view and used food immediately came into question. As well as how not be that jerk at a party who is always looking at labels or proclaiming how healthy they are. I also had to dig deep and let go of some past things.
After I traversed that rocky terrain for over a month I woke up one day and realized how many amazing changes had already taken place. I had someone shed over 12 pounds and I was looking and feeling amazing. My continual sinus problems had cleared sufficiently, my sugar cravings were under control, and my mind was more clear. I was a new woman and had the story and the proof to share.
My goal in the challenge was to feel more vital and deal with some minor candida issues. I had no idea how much better I would feel in such a short amount of time. I can truly say that the vegan lifestyle is the right one for me. I will continue my journey as a plant passionate vegan even after the 90 days are over.
I will be forever grateful to my coach Lasse for his patience, expertise, and mission to help the world… One vegan at a time!
