Day 17

I was able to share my project with a group of people today! They were genuinely curious as to what I ate, what I kept track of, what I had found, and my overall experience with the diet. Some of them were skeptical, but it was a very positive experiment. I may have even found another reader.

That’s what this is all about. It’s about learning and sharing to help people understand. Bringing to light all the wonderful benefits of being vegan, and learning how to deal with the drawbacks. I feel like today was a big success. I even found more cookbooks today!
