Keeping inspired whilst plant-based

Keeping inspired whilst plant-based

Q :

Hi Bridget!! Have you ever felt less motivated to keep on with your vegan diet?? If so, how have you overcome the problem?? Thanks in advance, I'm a big fan of yours and you really inspire me!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

A :

I personally haven’t ever really hit any periods of less motivation. I love the way I feel on this way of eating. That’s not to say I don’t sometimes smell a steak and think YUM – I am human after all.

I think you need to look at the reason why you feel less motivated to keep up with your way of eating. Are you bored? Or missing certain nutrients?

I would advise you to get a blood test to make sure you aren’t deficient in anything that may be leading to cravings. Then I would say maybe try cooking some new dishes, or maybe hitting up some new restaurants. Try going through Pinterest to see if there is any vegan food porn taking your fancy.

Then if none of that is working for you, and you really just cannot go on anymore, then don’t. Life is short and you owe it to yourself to be happy! Just make sure you are making this decision having exhausted all other options. And go easy on yourself. You aren’t ruled by your dietary choices – I dislike labels and the stigma attached to them. Choose happiness every single day. 😀

 

Peace and love,

Bridget
