Vegan Kickstart: Day 1

Today is day 1 of the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart!

I plan to spend the next 21 days committed to not eating meat (easy peasy--I was already a vegetarian), as well as no animal by products, such as dairy or eggs. I want to blog about my experience here. I have no intention of trying to get anyone else to try the kickstart or to stop eating meat. I hope all of you continue to read this blog as I experience what it is like to live life as a vegan. I am hoping to write about everything from product reviews to recipes to revealing my struggles with this (I am sure there are bound to be some). I promise to intersperse posts on other things as well! I will need some support on this journey, so I would really appreciate only kind and/or supportive comments (and, of course, any questions you have!).

I am stocked up on vegan cookbooks, produce and a wealth of informational materials. I want to dive in head first to see how being a vegan makes me feel. I may end these 21 days deciding it's what is right for me--and I may end them just wanting to get my hands on some real ice cream.

For me, it all boils down to the simple fact that I have no good reason not to try this and a whole host of reasons why I should.
