I’m loving it. Yet I don’t have the same experience. My roommates are meat eating, crack food addicted, milk by the gallon chugglers and I do some of the cooking. They have turned a deaf ear on me for years. Just old hippie talk.
Yet I have switched white rice for brown rice, I cut out all excess fats and oils. I make more vegetables and grains than meat. I have stopped telling them about the benefits and just demonstrated it by living life and feeling better than when I was in my 20s.
Last night my son asked for me to add beans into this Mexican brown rice/taco flavored/meat dish. Yay!! I live for all the small victories. Yesterday I noticed someone had some of my soymilk. Yay! Baby steps, baby steps.
I personally have dropped over 30 pounds and am less than 5’ tall, so makes a big difference. I’m a walking vegan billboard, always smiling, and living life large. And with all the politics in California about GMOs and just food in general, I think it’s going to be their year…..lol
Keep the faith
