Day#21 of the 30-day Vegan Journey

 

Can you believe just three short weeks ago you dared to commit to altering your life for 30 days? That’s right, twenty-one vegan days have officially gone by and you haven’t bailed on your commitment to this 30-day vegan journey. Kudos! There’s an old saying that it takes 21-days to break a habit and the same to create a new one. That theory has been tested, I’ve tested it and I believe it to be true. And if you’ve yet to cheat, that’s means you concur.

I also wanted to remind you all of the importance of portion size. You should not be eating anything larger than the palm of your hand. Ten years ago, when I transitioned to a vegetarian lifestyle, I thought I had to pig out to suffice for the omitting of meat products. I realized that was a bad Idea when I began gaining weight. Living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle is not a ticket to stuff yourself. There are still calories in vegetables, fruits, and grains that when over consumed can put pounds of flesh upon you. Eat moderated square vegan meals. Most importantly, make sure your largest meal is breakfast.

Breakfast sets the course of how the rest of your meals will pan out throughout the day. Eating a well balanced full breakfast will keep you from overeating at other meals times over the course of the day. Actually,

Researchers have repeatedly shown that people who eat breakfast have a better chance of losing weight, and keeping it off. When you skip meals, you’re so hungry by lunchtime you’d eat an entire cow! – 10 reasons breakfast is a must
