As I read this article I realized I had made every one of these mistakes when I first became a vegetarian. It's so easy to make mistakes when attempting a lifestyle change like this one. It's not just giving up meat or going vegan and giving up all animal products, there's so much more to it than that.
It's about taking the time to read all of the ingredient labels on everything you want to buy. It's about avoiding animal products like leather or fur which can be sneakily hiding on / in a variety of things we purchase. It's about learning to cook vegetables in new and exciting ways. It's about learning to maximize on vitamins, minerals, and proteins through food and drink. Everything changes and quite rapidly so mistakes are totally normal and ok.
I wanted to touch base on their 4 things and talk a little about my own experiences.
How many mistakes did y'all make when you first went vegetarian / vegan? I can bet almost all of you will relate to at least one of these mistakes. Mistakes are normal, learn from them and continue to do the best you can for your bodies!
