This month I reached an interesting vegan milestone. I’m finally at the point where I can now say that I’ve been vegan for most of my life.
I was non-vegan for the first 25.75 years of my life (309 months). For the last 3.5 of those years, I was lacto-ovo vegetarian.
I’ve now been vegan for the past 25.8 years of my life (309.5 months), finally surpassing my years as a non-vegan.
This assumes we don’t count my time in the womb. It will take a bit longer to compensate for those extra 9 months. 🙂
Of all the personal growth changes and challenges I appreciate having gone through, going vegan was the #1 most transformational, especially due to all the ripple effects it had.
I began this vegan journey with a 30-day trial in January 1997 to see what it was like. After the first week I never wanted to go back to the old reality.
