I’ve been having an affair with becoming vegan for awhile. My long, monogamous relationship with meat and dairy has had more downs than ups, but I can’t bring myself to walk away. Like most affairs, I fear, the idea of it is far sexier than the actual act.
There is really no one holding me back from making the change. I could turn my back on meat and dairy and there would be no hard feelings. I’m sure the cows won’t be putting up their hooves in protest saying, “Please stop and think about what you’ll be missing.”
I’m usually not one to take things slow, but in this case I think it would be better to ease into it. I could go cold turkey off meat and dairy, but it might not be a long lasting change. The better route would be for me to educate myself on why turning vegan would be better for my health. Trying some recipes would also fall under a good idea.
