For those considering making the transition to a vegan diet, the lifestyle change can feel overwhelming. The idea of drastically changing the way you eat and live can feel daunting to some, however, going vegan isn’t all that difficult if you’ve got the knowledge necessary to make it a smooth transition.
The following are two strategies that helped me when I was initially embracing the vegan lifestyle:
As a yoga and Pilates teacher, I am a huge advocate for moving your body in the way that feels best for you. While some people prefer to partake in more rigorous exercises such as CrossFit, others enjoy opting for gentler options, like restorative yoga.
Pilates however, is an immensely popular type of exercise that offers a multitude of physical and mental health benefits. Here are two of my favourites “side effects” of practicing Pilates:
As a vegan, restaurant menus and lunch dates can be tricky to navigate. Although most vegans I know don’t complain, and can always find something on a menu that they can eat, variety is the spice of life, and vegans deserve it outside of their kitchens too!
That’s where Aroma Espresso Bar comes into play. While this coffee shop hot spot isn’t known to be vegan, its menu items reflect that the company acknowledges the importance of nutritious and wholesome eating, and are amazing at accommodating a wide variety of dietary issues, like vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free. Substitutions are made readily with a smile!
As the winter is slowly coming to an end while warmer weather arrives on our doorsteps, there is no better time than now to engage spring renewal. The spring season is a time of rebirth and life, just look outside into your garden and you will see last years flowers beginning to make their way from the soil once more.
