It’s been over a year now since I had to accept the hard fact that a vegan diet wasn’t working for me. I had finished my Holistic Nutrition Certification that taught me all about the incredible benefits of plants and all the ailments that a vegan diet could cure. So why in the world was I getting sicker? I was so frustrated. How I was supposed to help clients? How could I face every animal I came across? I felt so torn between my morals, my knowledge and everything my body was saying to me. What I didn’t realize is just how big of a lesson I was getting in a totally (seemingly unrelated area in my life. Minimalism. So let me walk you through how trying veganism taught me minimalism one lesson at a time.
