Since our journey we have had friends and family ask how do we make the change? where do we start? how did you do it?
Don't make it complicated. Just begin.
Don't over complicate the process of change. Don't wait for a great moment, turning point, an inspiration. Forget it. Just begin.
Small steps - just begin
Don’t wait for the golden moment. The turning point. The magic key. There isn’t one. If you want to change something in your life, don’t plan to change the whole thing at once and “really get into this.” Forget it. Just begin.
How to begin
First - why you want to do this.? To loose weight? To get healthy? To save the animals? to save the planet?
To us this is not a diet to lose weight, but a complete lifestyle change. Yes you can lose weight, anywhere from a little if you only need to lose a little to a whole lot if you need to but to us it was really more about our health, the animals and our planet.
Just begin - focus on the big picture and if you need to loose weight you will.
Second - do it as a family. Even if your partner doesn't need to loose weight everyone will benefit from eating healthier including the animals and planet earth. This is a get healthy, stay healthy lifestyle - not a diet.
So now just begin
A Whole Foods Plant-Based lifestyle should not cost you anything. You're buying food now, so it's just replace one group of foods with another. This is a Whole Food - Plant Based Lifestyle not a vegan lifestyle. (though we are both). Eliminate heavily processed food (if you cannot pronounce the ingredients on the packet, leave it on the shelf), cut out refined sugar and oil. Ensure the majority of your calories and nutrients come from fresh and whole food.
Are you ready to just begin?
