I'm actually surprised by how easy it has been to eat completely vegan and not really miss my favorite foods. Between Daiya vegan cheese and ice cream made from almond milk, I really don't miss dairy at all! The only time I have difficulty is during my 12 hour nursing shifts when I've run out of food from my packed lunch and the only thing to eat are the milk chocolate candy bars for sale on the floor! My mom is a big proponent of veganism for health reasons, and I'm glad to have her for support of the lifestyle. Otherwise, I don't know any other vegans and would love to meet more like-minded people!
I recently became vegan just a couple months ago, and I'm still getting into the swing of it. I work as an RN, and my erratic work schedule can make it difficult for me to be social! I love animals and have a cat that I adore.
