When I looked over this list, I honestly could have done most of these things as an omnivore. I think that since turning vegan, I’ve been exposed to more foods and lifestyles and have become a lot more tolerant to the ways people choose to live and what they choose to eat.
Being vegan has been a catalyst of some sort into expanding my comfort zone. It was a primer, it made new things and foods seem less scary or weird, because I was already weird, I was a vegan for Christ sake!
Now when I read different blogs, most of them are not vegan, but they too have a much wider palate or consciousness than I did as an omnivore. It’s really cool to see that the standard American diet is not holding anyone back, vegan or not.
1.) I went raw for a month
2.) Steam veggies
3.) Make my own nut butter
4.) Eat foods with a smaller carbon footprint
5.) Save plant scraps for stock or smoothies
6.) Make desserts with beans
7.) Average 8 bananas a day
8.) Use gluten-free and alternative flours
9.) Run a relay race with other vegans
10.) Buy vegan propaganda tee shirts
11.) Watch health/environmental documentaries
12.) Understand how nutrition impacts running and change accordingly
13.) Consider myself my own experiment
14.) Have my own opinions regarding social issues
15.) Drive to a specific place just to eat their vegan food
16.) Develop my relationship with Christ
If I missed anything, let me know how you’ve changed your thinking or tried new things as you mature and get older!
Now, time for WIAW and my vegan eats!

Have your eating habits changed since reading blogs or blogging?
