Who am I?

My name is Kaylyn.  I am a 24 year old who lives in Chicago.  I graduated college two years ago.  I am currently in debt and am working at a job that has nothing to do with my degree.  I am working hard to learn more about finance and living frugally.  I recently decided to go vegan.  Learning how to budget as a vegan is difficult to say the least.  I'm still learning how to substitute eggs, cheese, dairy, and meat in order to get the nutritional balance I need.  Things are looking up though.  I keep reading blogs and information on a weekly basis.  I've gotten to the point where there's only a couple questions I have.  The issue now is just putting all my research into action. 

I'm still transitioning into a vegan diet.  I have vegan breakfasts down.  I eat majority vegan meals.  However there are some meals that are technically vegetarian, not vegan.  It's a slow process, but I want to do it right and get the nutritional balance accurate.  My next goal is to eat all vegan breakfasts and vegan lunches. 

Many people might be wondering as they read this, why a vegan diet?  For me, that's easy to answer.  I have a digestive problem.  I've thought I was lactose intolerant for years.  However, doctors have told me that I'm not.  The truth is that when I eat, the food is digested normally except for one section.  In that section, it stops for a few seconds before continuing its path.  Besides my digestive issue, I strongly believe that food heals.  The more natural food is, the better it is for you.  There are many studies that show that eating a vegan diet wards off many diseases and keeps you naturally healthy on the inside and out.  It's the best decision I made for myself.  What can be better than that? 

That's all anyone can do...make smart decisions for themselves.  Taking care of yourself first is the only way you can take care of other people.

"Keep Moving Forward"
