My plant-based journey started when I was 19 years old, in an intro to nutrition class at Oakland University. During one of our classes, our professor showed slaughter house footage. I left class as a vegetarian that very day and never looked back.
After further personal research, I transitioned to a plant-based vegan lifestyle for mostly ethical reasons. I didn’t expect or even consider the idea that this change would have any health benefits. I already had considered myself to be healthy and in good shape. After about a month, I noticed that my energy levels had increased. I no longer felt the need for coffee in the mornings, or even pre-workout before the gym. My headaches that I would get at least 2-3 times a week are down to once or twice a month. This was huge for me.
I’ve become obsessed with researching the benefits of a plant-based diet. I am now 24 years old, and in October I will have been living a plant-based vegan lifestyle for 2 years. So far, I have only gotten stronger and in better shape. It is my goal to one day start my own blog and share the information I have learned with as many people as possible.
