This is not a regular Veganuary story as I didn’t even take the challenge. I believe that those changes need time and as I respect my body, if I want to become vegan I need to take it slowly.
I have been a veggie for three years and have no regrets in being it. I used to be a meat affectionate but my love for animals made me switch. I usually say ‘I’m veggie because I love animals more than meat’ and that’s literally the essence of my decision.
My vegan friend from Portugal is staying with me for a few days and every time she is here I really become convinced I can become vegan. Specially when we go to cafe Thrive. Love that restaurant to pieces.
Cafe Thrive is 100% vegan meaning that every item on the menu was to my grasp. Today I ate a ‘meaty’ burger with sweet potato fries and donut and it was delicious. Better than any other restaurant. Guilt-free.
Crispy sweet potato fries, wonderful hamburger sauce, great pumpkin seeds on my side salad, an overall an ‘I want to be vegan’ experience.
Unfortunately, I know that I can’t eat there everyday and so, I remain veggie.
I won’t put ‘be vegan’ on the 2019 list as I believe I need more motivation to do so but it’s definitely on my ‘life list’.
Until then, camembert here I come.
Also, this was in no way shape or form brought to you by cafe thrive, I’m just a loyal customer. However, if you want to sponsor me I take your payment in meal form.
