I just celebrated my 4th full year as a vegan - and I've been reflecting on all the amazing change that has taken place as a result. While the changes have affected every area of my life, I thought I would share 7 HUGE differences the change has made in my body alone. Can you relate to any of these?
1. Inflammation dropped away and the shape of my body totally changed. This was a change I started to notice right away. It was as though my body was saying "Thanks for giving me more of what I need and less of what I don't. I can be ME!"
2. My hair grew back. For a long time, I carried an embarrassing bald spot on the top of my head. My hair was thinning and I knew it was hormonal, but nothing I tried worked...until I stopped eating meat and dairy and started filling up my plate with more nutrients. My hair is thicker now than it's ever been.
3. Menstrual Cramps disappeared! I'm 100% serious.
4. My skin cleared up. Face and body. Healthier, softer, clearer skin.
5. My digestion improved. I used to not feel well a LOT. Tummy trouble was a normal occurrence and I just thought ...."meh, it happens to all of us". Truth is - meat and dairy are REALLY hard on our digestion and our body will often let us know it's not happy.
6. I sleep like a baby and am energized like a bunny! I can accomplish a LOT in a day, and thank goodness because - big goals...but my sleep is soooo much better too.
7. Mental clarity. Say goodbye to brain fog and hello to clear, intuitive, inspired action. Eating closer to the earth means you get your head out of the clouds and become so very grounded.
Like all things, these changes didn't happen overnight - but I truthfully wasn't expecting them to happen at all. I got so used to the way I was feeling, I didn't know any different...and I'm so so glad I listened to the nudge.
