I thought it was time after being the happiest of herbivores for almost 3 years now, to write a big-ass list of vegan everythings!
For the first 2 years I was very strict on myself and now I do occasionally slip up on cheese every now and again, but on the whole I’m so glad I made the switch. I had housemate of mine at university go vegan and I haphazardly watched a documentary on called Cowspirisy on Netflix and it kind of spiralled from there really.
It took about 6 months to swap everything over even down to toothpaste and hair dye but for the love of all the four legged creatures it is so worth it!
