I was inspired by @theveggiemd who challenged us to eat plant based diet for 7 days. I have high cholesterol and a family history of cardiovascular disease (my father had a heart attack in his 40’s), so introducing healthier eating is important for me. This was a nice way to become familiar with vegan recipes and the entire vegan section at Whole Foods which I had up until this point, skipped over.
I recently went pescatarian, but I love cheese and dairy and never ever thought of making the full transition to vegan. But, I figured why not? I can do anything for 7 days. So, here’s my experience, coming from the perspective that we are all omnivores. I didn’t want this to be just a challenge for myself, I wanted to see if I could introduce healthier habits for my family.
