I’ve been vegucated guys! For the longest time I was looking for a reason to give up meat. At some point in my college career it just didn’t taste as good. Don’t get me wrong, I would still eat it when I got the chance, but after being in a school that never served meat for over 2 years, it had lost its appeal.  So around August I had decided that eventually, I’d give up meat. In order to do so, I needed to know why this move was the right move so over the course of 4 months, I did my research, watched countless documentaries, and talked to people who had made the change. It wasn’t until I watched 3 particular documentaries on Netflix was I sold on the idea. The 3 documentaries were Vegucated, Food Inc, and Cowspiracy and I couldn’t help but go on a whole “angry vegan” rant (in my head of course). And there it was, the word “vegan”. For the longest, my uneducated opinion of vegans was that they were tree hugging extremists, but after even more research I realized what being vegan was really about. I no longer could be apart of anything that would treat animals in such a cruel manner and then have the audacity to go on television and show me pictures of happy cows. No Shade.


I learned in my health principles class that the best diet was a whole food, plant based diet. The vegan diet is basically that but like most things, it has to be done right.

I’m slooooooowly weening myself of meat because living in a Haitian household during Christmas break makes it hard to cut it out completely but once I’m back in school, I’ll be saying bye bye forever.


I don’t think I’ll mourn it much. At the end of the day, this is a change that can reap nothing but benefits.

SOOOOOO you guys should definitely check out the documentaries I mentioned. I’m not going to tell you to give up meat because I don’t want to be an angry vegan. There are definitely people who eat meat and live pretty healthy lives. Personally, I think I’ll be better off.

If you’ve recently made the switch, let me know how it’s going for you and some tips to help me out!

  1. YAY! Congrats on making the switch! If you need any advice, feel free to check out my vegan blog ( ) or to shoot me an email.
    I’ve seen all of those movies and agree with you on all of them. You have a great mindset (not pushing the vegan ways on others)!
    Happy holidays!
