Join Our 21-Day Vegan Challenge

I’ve been a borderline vegetarian/vegan for years, so I know going vegan can be quite the challenge. I began by avoiding red meat and pork, then stopped eating chicken. For years I continued to eat seafood. Eventually I began cutting fish, and then shellfish, out of my diet as well.

I became vegan inside the house and vegetarian outside the house, because it was just “too hard” to eat vegan in a restaurant. I gave up cheese. I began cooking vegan meals at home. I learned how to balance my diet. I’m still working on the baking part.

If you are on the verge of making the jump to vegan, this 21-day vegan challenge may give you the final nudge you need. See if you can do it for 21 days, then keep adding more days until you can’t remember the last time you ate cheese or milk products.

What to Expect from This Challenge

During the 21 days of this challenge, I’ll be nudging you towards a more vegan lifestyle. Just remember, I feel your pain. I spent a long time in the transition phase. And don’t worry, I’ll be with you every step of the way. I will give you helpful tips and encouragement to keep you going. During this challenge, you’ll get:

  • Easy vegan recipes to get you started
  • How to handle negative comments about your diet
  • How to make sure your vegan diet is healthy

After the 21 days, you’ll have vegan recipes, tips for when the going gets tough, and inspiration to keep going. You’ll feel better inside and out. I hope you’re as excited by this challenge as I am.
